      I would disagree with the final paragraph. If k8s is a car, nomad is the base model. Still gets you from point a to b, but with way fewer features.

      Why not using Docker Swarm? It’s very easy to setup and mantain.

        As far as I know Swarm is no longer maintained since the acquisition of Docker.

          Mirantis will continue the development and support of Docker Swarm.

            Oh, I wasn’t aware of that, thanks for pointing that out. I really enjoyed Docker Swarm previously, it is straightforward to use.

            I would say Nomad is able to orchestrate more than just containers and it brings integration points with other Hashicorp products like Vault or Consul.

            1. 1

              For Vault, you can use Secrets: https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/secrets/

              Consul is supported on Docker Swarm.

            Great to hear!
