Hi Jeff and Stephen,

I have a question regarding Docker Swarm. I came in contact with it just a bit in some introductory classes for Docker, but never heard anybody using it for orchestration in production. How advanced it is compared to commonly used orchestration software like Kubernetes ? Do both mentioned technologies aim at same objectives or is there some difference also ?

Thank you.
