This topic describes the prerequisites and limits for function comparisons between a Swarm cluster and a Kubernetes cluster that run in Container Service.
You have created a Kubernetes cluster. For more information, see Create a Kubernetes cluster.
- Alibaba Cloud Container Service for Kubernetes supports the following clusters: the dedicated Kubernetes cluster, the managed Kubernetes cluster, the multi-zone Kubernetes cluster, and the serverless Kubernetes cluster (in beta).
- The topic uses creating a Kubernetes cluster as an example to compare the functions between a Swarm and a Kubernetes cluster that run on Container Service.
- The applications used for the function comparison are as follows:
- Stateless applications
- Applications that use a data base or a storage device to store data
