A year ago, in October 2017 at the last Dockercon Europe event, Docker announced that it would be support the erstwhile rival Kubernetes container orchestration system. At the time, Docker’s management committed to continuing to support Swarm and now a year later, they are still on that same path. Docker has been developing its own Swarm system since December 2014.
“We have many clients that continue to run Docker Swarm in production,” Singh said. “Swarm continues to be a very well adopted container orchestration tool, in large part, honestly because it’s ridiculously simple to use.”
