Choose which combination suits you best

Swarm is Docker’s orchestration tool. It is often contrasted with Kubernetes. Ironically, Docker and Kubernetes are the most popular combination, instead of Docker and its own Swarm.

The majority of IT companies prefer Kubernetes to Swarm, and Kubernetes is gaining more and more market share. But at Denit we like to have our own, critical opinion. For us, it is not about market share but about the best combination in a given situation. Each tool has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Advantages of Swarm

Choosing Swarm means choosing a tool designed by Docker itself. This has a number of advantages over, for example, Kubernetes:

  • Easy installation and setup
  • Integrates perfectly into the Docker ecosystem
  • Very fast container deployment and therefore more scalable

In essence, the difference between Swarm and Kubernetes is simplicity. With Swarm, (micro)services and applications can be deployed quickly, but as soon as the architecture becomes more complex, Kubernetes is usually the better choice. If you want to employ the advantages of containerization quickly, you should opt for Swarm. It is the ideal tool for anyone who wants to take their first steps in an orchestrated environment. But if you desire a more complex architecture, we recommend Kubernetes.
