back to article Tutum technology bobs back to surface as Docker Cloud

The Tutum technology Docker borged late last year has resurfaced in the form of Docker Cloud. Docker bought NY-based Tutum back in October, for an undisclosed sum. At the time, Tutum had under ten employees, and was pushing its service as a "limitless" free beta. Back then, Docker described its new buy as a complete platform …

    Tutum was great

    We've been using Tutum (Beta) as an "Orchestration as a Service" Platform for a few months now. It has been an incredibly simple and powerful tool for implementing Continuous Integration. We've been using it to automatically deploy changes to QA and Prod, from hooks in Bitbucket /

    The QA environment is on-prem, and the prod. environment on AWS.... Great!


    I've had a look at Docker cloud, and it is essentially a re-brand of Tutum. The pricing has now been introduced for Docker Cloud... Which means that we now have to pay for AWS hosting infrastructure + this orchestration framework, per node... Not a very scalable pricing model for us...

    Wouldn't it be more sensible to charge simply for orchestration/management services at a fixed rate, (maybe with a node range).... A bit like a VMware ESXi / vCenter separation.It just feels like the control plane functionality shouldn't be taxing the data plane so heavily - and could get prohibitive.
