Clear Containers vs Docker: What are the differences?

Developers describe Clear Containers as "Use the isolation of virtual-machine technology along with the deployment benefits of containers". We set out to build Clear Containers by leveraging the isolation of virtual-machine technology along with the deployment benefits of containers. As part of this, we let go of the "generic PC hardware" notion traditionally associated with virtual machines; we're not going to pretend to be a standard PC that is compatible with just about any OS on the planet. On the other hand, Docker is detailed as "Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation". The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere.

Clear Containers and Docker can be primarily classified as "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" tools.

Clear Containers and Docker are both open source tools. It seems that Docker with 54K GitHub stars and 15.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Clear Containers with 421 GitHub stars and 57 GitHub forks.

Chose
LXDLXD
over
DockerDocker

lxd/lxc and Docker aren't congruent so this comparison needs a more detailed look; but in short I can say: the lxd-integrated administration of storage including zfs with its snapshot capabilities as well as the system container (multi-process) approach of lxc vs. the limited single-process container approach of Docker is the main reason I chose lxd over Docker.

        What are some alternatives to Clear Containers and Docker?
        LXC
        LXC is a userspace interface for the Linux kernel containment features. Through a powerful API and simple tools, it lets Linux users easily create and manage system or application containers.
        LXD
        LXD isn't a rewrite of LXC, in fact it's building on top of LXC to provide a new, better user experience. Under the hood, LXD uses LXC through liblxc and its Go binding to create and manage the containers. It's basically an alternative to LXC's tools and distribution template system with the added features that come from being controllable over the network.
        Studio 3T
        It's the only MongoDB tool that provides three ways to explore data alongside powerful features like query autocompletion, polyglot code generation, a stage-by-stage aggregation query builder, import and export, SQL query support and more.
        Vagrant Cloud
        Vagrant Cloud pairs with Vagrant to enable access, insight and collaboration across teams, as well as to bring exposure to community contributions and development environments.
        rkt
        Rocket is a cli for running App Containers. The goal of rocket is to be composable, secure, and fast.
