My company is trying to play a little catch-up in the DevOps space. I have been doing a lot of research on containerization of applications and the orchestration systems that go with it. I came across an article (one that I wish I had saved) where they were talking about combining Swarm with Kubernetes to get better functionality. In this article they did not define what they gained by doing that.
I wondered what benefits would this provide? Is adding the extra layer of complexity really going to give you much return?
EDIT: I am looking for technical pro's/con's. KISS is a good motto but doesn't hold up in a debate with your CEO or Board.
I am almost positive that we will be selecting Docker for our containers and Swarm for an orchestration. I, however, would like to see Kubernetes in our space so the proposition that you could merge the technologies together for a more robust solution intrigues me.Thanks for any insight.
