Docker vs SmartOS: What are the differences?
Docker: 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; SmartOS: Converged Container and Virtual Machine Hypervisor. It combines the capabilities you get from a lightweight container OS, optimized to deliver containers, with the robust security, networking and storage capabilities you’ve come to expect and depend on from a hardware hypervisor.
Docker and SmartOS belong to "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Docker are:
- Integrated developer tools
- open, portable images
- shareable, reusable apps
On the other hand, SmartOS provides the following key features:
- Secure containers
- Full isolation per container in a multi-tenant environment
- Built-in networking
