Kubernetes vs OpenStack

Kubernetes
Manage a cluster of Linux containers as a single system to accelerate Dev and simplify Ops with Kubernetes by Google.

OpenStack
OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution.
Comparing Kubernetes vs OpenStack is like comparing apples to oranges. Because your business is unique and nobody except you can decide, which is better for your company. But we can add some fun to your research and suggest some new comparison parameters.

Ok, now let's compare the UI. Looks like OpenStack has more user-friendly interface than Kubernetes because it's bigger. At least on our screenshots


To compare the popularity of the solutions we counted how many alternatives people search for each of them on the Internet. And it turns out that OpenStack is more popular than Kubernetes

Now let's look at the recent activities of our competitors:

- Microsoft Azure shifts its focus to Kubernetes (in 2017)
- Pivotal, VMware and Google forge container partnership (in 2017)
- Google launches a more scalable and robust Kubernetes (in 2016)
- Rackspace offers ready-to-use Openstack private clouds (in 2016)
- Google Container Engine now supports the latest version of Kubernetes (in 2015)
- Google is joining OpenStack (in 2015)
- VMware integrates its cloud management tools with OpenStack (in 2014)
- Surprise! VMWare has joined OpenStack (in 2012)
- OpenStack - is like the Soviet Union. Who develops OpenStack? (in 2012)
- OpenStack launches. CloudStack departs. Amazon adapts SAP. Azure rebrands (in 2012)

Looks like OpenStack was recently more active than Kubernetes (at least in our news).
