Compose vs Docker Swarm: What are the differences?
Compose: We host databases for busy devs: production-ready, cloud-hosted, open source. Compose makes it easy to spin up multiple open source databases with just one click. Deploy MongoDB for production, take Redis out for a performance test drive, or spin up RethinkDB in development before rolling it out to production; Docker Swarm: Native clustering for Docker. Turn a pool of Docker hosts into a single, virtual host. Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
Compose can be classified as a tool in the "MongoDB Hosting" category, while Docker Swarm is grouped under "Container Tools".
"Simple to set up" is the top reason why over 41 developers like Compose, while over 44 developers mention "Docker friendly" as the leading cause for choosing Docker Swarm.
Docker Swarm is an open source tool with 5.63K GitHub stars and 1.11K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker Swarm's open source repository on GitHub.
Docker, Bugsnag, and Hammerhead are some of the popular companies that use Docker Swarm, whereas Compose is used by Accenture, Artsy, and FashionUnited. Docker Swarm has a broader approval, being mentioned in 83 company stacks & 38 developers stacks; compared to Compose, which is listed in 82 company stacks and 19 developer stacks.
