Centurion vs Tutum: What are the differences?
What is Centurion? A mass deployment tool for Docker fleets. A deployment tool for Docker, made by New Relic. Takes containers from a Docker registry and runs them on a fleet of hosts with the correct environment variables, host volume mappings, and port mappings. Supports rolling deployments out of the box, and makes it easy to ship applications to Docker servers. New Relic is using it to run their production infrastructure.
What is Tutum? Build, deploy, monitor, and scale Docker containers. Tutum lets developers easily manage and run lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. AWS-like control, Heroku-like ease. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale in Tutum.
Centurion and Tutum can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Some of the features offered by Centurion are:
- Rake application tasks and dependencies
- Talk to a fleet of Docker servers at once
- Does rolling deployment
On the other hand, Tutum provides the following key features:
- Deploy from Docker Hub
- Free private Docker registry
- CLI Tool

We were looking for a solution to run Docker containers on a PaaS platform, without the need to manage everything by yourself. Before Tutum, there were exactly two options: Either run Docker on an IaaS for yourself, or use a PaaS without Docker. Both are not satisfying.
Enter Tutum: Tutum offers all the PaaS-like flexibility and comfort, but for Docker containers. This basically means that you create a Docker container, push it to Tutum, and then say: Now scale this container and use 5 instances instead of 1. And it just works.
Scale down again? Works either. Link containers to others? Works. Working with custom domains and CNAMEs? Works, too. And so on and so on…
In the end, it comes down to: Push a container, set the constraints, and let Tutum do the rest.
For anyone who is looking for a reliable, affordable and easy-to-use PaaS-like solution, but for Docker containers, Tutum IMHO is absolutely the way to go :-).
And, one more thing: They have awesome support - simply drop them a line, and they'll take care of you - fast, friendly, helpful. That's the way it should be.
Hence, to summarize, I can only recommend Tutum to anyone :-).
One of the things that take more time when you are creating an application is the environments setup. By using Tutum, we can delegate the heavy work related to servers and focus in our business. The interface is very intuitive and allows you to quickly manage your servers. I highly recommend Tutum for anyone who doesn't want to waste time in complicated server configurations.
I'm newbie about using Docker. But now I use DaaS for my blog. Tutum's UI/UX is awesome. Look & feel is simple, and support is very friendly and high quality.
