Docker containers without Kubernetes

Making a Case Against Kubernetes at Ably

"In a recent article in the Ably Engineering series, Ably's engineer Maik Zumstrull explained why real-time messaging platform Ably does not use Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is, without doubt, a very hot topic and is attracting a lot of interest from developers and companies. It aims to provide a platform to automate deployment, scaling, and operations of containers across clusters of hosts. Kubernetes has become one of the preferred solutions to manage container-based and microservice-oriented platforms.

Ably platform runs on AWS and, although all of their software is deployed in containers, it does not rely on Kubernetes or other runtime layers for their orchestration."
