DC/OS vs VMware vSphere: What are the differences?

DC/OS: The Datacenter Operating System. The easiest way to run microservices, big data, and containers in production. Unlike traditional operating systems, DC/OS spans multiple machines within a network, aggregating their resources to maximize utilization by distributed applications; VMware vSphere: Free bare-metal hypervisor that virtualizes servers so you can consolidate your applications on less hardware. vSphere is the world’s leading server virtualization platform. Run fewer servers and reduce capital and operating costs using VMware vSphere to build a cloud computing infrastructure.

DC/OS can be classified as a tool in the "Cluster Management" category, while VMware vSphere is grouped under "Virtualization Platform".

Some of the features offered by DC/OS are:

  • High Resource Utilization
  • Mixed Workload Colocation
  • Container Orchestration

On the other hand, VMware vSphere provides the following key features:

  • Powerful Server Virtualization
  • Network Services
  • Efficient Storage
