Hello Everyone, I am new here and I don’t know this is right place to ask this question. I am confused to choose between docker and kubernetes. I am confusing in terms of scalability and loading application. Can anyone know about the head to head comparison between them?
|Installation & Cluster Configuration||Installation is complicated; but once set up, the cluster is very strong||Installation is very simple, but the cluster is not very strong|
|GUI||GUI is the Kubernetes Dashboard||There is no GUI|
|Scalability||Highly scalable & scales fast||Highly scalable & scales 5x faster than Kubernetes|
|Auto-Scaling||Kubernetes can do auto-scaling||Docker Swarm cannot do auto-scaling|
|Load Balancing||Manual intervention needed for load balancing traffic between different containers in different Pods||Docker Swarm does auto load balancing of traffic between containers in the cluster|
|Rolling Updates & Rollbacks||Can deploy Rolling updates & does automatic Rollbacks||Can deploy Rolling updates, but not automatic Rollbacks|
|Data Volumes||Can share storage volumes only with other containers in the same Pod||Can share storage volumes with any other container|
|Logging & Monitoring||In-built tools for logging & monitoring||3rd party tools like ELK should be used for logging & monitoring|

Docker is what enables us to run, create and manage containers on a single operating system. Kubernetes allow you to automate container provisioning, networking, load-balancing, security and scaling across all these nodes from a single command line or dashboard.
