Why CoreOS just fired a Rocket at Docker

So basically what CoreOS are saying is that Docker is aiming to become a competitor in the Enterprise management space, so they are starting Rocket to undermine Docker’s most fundamental piece.

Docker’s effort to develop its enterprise-oriented lineup of features has caused the company to lose sight of its goal of making sure that its core container technology lives up to its promise, Polvi argued. As Docker’s recent acquisition of Orchard Laboratories and its Fig container orchestration service shows, Docker is working on technology to manage all those spun-up Docker containers, and it wants to make a business around that technology.

In this sense, Docker seems to be competing with container-management-and-orchestration services like Google’s Kubernetes or the new Amazon EC2 Container service, Polvi said.
