AWS Fargate vs Docker Cloud: What are the differences?

What is AWS Fargate? Run Containers Without Managing Infrastructure. AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon ECS and EKS* that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.

What is Docker Cloud? A hosted service for Docker container management and deployment. Docker Cloud is the best way to deploy and manage Dockerized applications. Docker Cloud makes it easy for new Docker users to manage and deploy the full spectrum of applications, from single container apps to distributed microservices stacks, to any cloud or on-premises infrastructure.

AWS Fargate and Docker Cloud belong to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by AWS Fargate are:

  • No clusters to manage
  • seamless scaling
  • integrated with Amazon ECS and EKS

On the other hand, Docker Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Simplify Docker Provisioning
  • Deploy Apps Anywhere
  • Automate Your Developer Workflows
