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As far as I know Swarm is no longer maintained since the acquisition of Docker.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.
For Vault, you can use Secrets: https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/secrets/
Consul is supported on Docker Swarm.
Great to hear!
