Why do we need orchestration platforms? Simply putting your applications into containers probably won't create a phenomenal shift in the way your organisation operates unless you also change how you deploy and manage those containers. There are plenty of possibilities in building your own Docker container through the use eg. of Docker Swarm; Consul; NFS or even by your HA-proxy where you can set up your own load balancers. A lot of choices to be made, but which way is the best for you?
