Kubernetes vs. Docker
Kubernetes & Docker: Friend or foe?
  • Know-how

If you’re happy with Docker and are already using the container visualizer, you might have thought about trying Kubernetes. But are these two systems actually rivals? Is it a case of Kubernetes vs. Docker? On the contrary, both work really well together. But the container pioneer now also offers its own tool for orchestration with Docker Swarm. So, which is better?
