Given the number of articles about Kubernetes vs Dockers on the internet, which actually doesn’t make any sense. This blog sheds lights why Kubernetes and Dockers are not competing applications, in the same analogy how parking lots and cars are not competing for real estate or competing modes of transportation. This blog will about show how containers and orchestrators work together to the advantage of an average software developer.
Make your Environment with Dockers
When it comes to applications, developers need different environments to test application. There was a time when testing applications in different environments was a process which involved a lot of leveraging finances and complexities. Virtual machines solved lot these issues but the competition demanded a better solution thus Docker.
When seen from a distance, Docker and virtual machines may seem the same, but the huge difference comes from the lightweight built and ability to construct these virtual machines with Docker. They are agile and can be used to mimic various environments, a developer can literally dream of. Even if a new developer joins the cause, due to the ease of use and ability to change the application at whim, and the tools to record the changes the program, the new programmer can go ahead without the need go through the process from the beginning.
Why Kubernetes then?
Since programmers have sorted out Docker for applications, why do they need Kubernetes?
Containerization with Docker is a blessing or the programmer, but if the developers want to scale the containers according to different situations. The developers need Kubernetes to scale, automate, and iterate situations across different containers. Without Kubernetes developers need to restart the process from the beginning, which is as tiresome and complex as it sounds. With Kubernetes developers can run scenarios upon scenarios across multiple containers with total ease, even with competition Kubernetes is best container orchestration software now due it’s flexibility across many environments and their superior performance.
