Over the last 7 years, the cloud industry has been hard at work developing and operating so called cloud orchestrator. These orchestrators or data center schedulers or virtual machine management systems have succeeded to provide cloud capabilities to the enterprise.
They offer a self-service, elastic, pay as you go system at the data center infrastructure layer. These systems are known as IaaS. Interestingly with the advent of Docker, a new type of orchestrator are being developed (Swarm, Kubernetes, Rancher) they are tailored for containers rather than virtual machines. But is there a real difference between these systems. They both have a set of machines under management, they both receive request from users to place a computing entity onto a machine and they both try to handle large scale and resiliency. In this talk we will discuss these systems, trying to compare their capabilities and see if there is a real difference between them. What is at stake of course, is whether systems like CloudStack and OpenStack should orchestrate containers, or whether new systems like Kubernetes and Rancher should start dealing with virtual machines. Or whether we should let everyone do what it does best.
