Azure Kubernetes Service: Simplify Kubernetes management, deployment, and operations. Fully managed Kubernetes container orchestration service on Microsoft Azure; 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.

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

Some of the features offered by Azure Kubernetes Service are:

  • Deploy and manage Kubernetes with ease
  • Scale and run applications with confidence
  • Secure your Kubernetes environment

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

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

DNT, Firecracker, and MetricAid are some of the popular companies that use Docker Cloud, whereas Azure Kubernetes Service is used by Cuemby, Veris, and Universal Electronics Inc..
