Flagger vs Kubernetes: What are the differences?

Flagger: Progressive delivery Kubernetes operator. Progressive Delivery operator for Kubernetes (Canary, A/B Testing and Blue/Green deployments); Kubernetes: Manage a cluster of Linux containers as a single system to accelerate Dev and simplify Ops. Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.

Flagger and Kubernetes can be categorized as "Container" tools.

Some of the features offered by Flagger are:

  • Flexible Traffic Routing
  • Extensible Validation
  • Progressive Delivery

On the other hand, Kubernetes provides the following key features:

  • Lightweight, simple and accessible
  • Built for a multi-cloud world, public, private or hybrid
  • Highly modular, designed so that all of its components are easily swappable

Kubernetes is an open source tool with 71.4K GitHub stars and 25.8K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Kubernetes's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to Flagger and Kubernetes?
      Docker Compose
      With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
      Rancher
      Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
      Docker Swarm
      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.
      Spring Cloud
      It provides tools for developers to quickly build some of the common patterns in distributed systems.
      Docker Machine
      Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
