Now that Eirini is an official incubation project, operators can choose between Kubernetes and Diego as their container scheduler in Cloud Foundry. But how should you - as an operator - make that choice? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

Diego and Kubernetes are both highly scalable, popular scheduling technologies. One has been built into Cloud Foundry for a long time. One, via Eirini, has recently become available to Cloud Foundry operators. Comparing them, one will find many similarities, but also more than a few differences. This brings up the question: when am I supposed to choose one vs the other?

In this talk, we will show the similarities between the two container orchestrators, and the key differences. We’ll give Cloud Foundry customers and operators a better understanding of in which scenarios it is useful to have Diego as container orchestrator, and in which scenarios it might be more useful to use Kubernetes.
