Service Scheduling on Swarm

Hey there!

I was curious if anyone has tried using Swarm with any kind of service-type orchestration (or knows of a project working on one). I’m looking for something that would emulate the behavior seen with Marathon in a Mesos cluster, where you define a number of instances of a service to run, and it’ll monitor them for health and start new ones should it die unexpectedly.

I’m thinking I can probably fake it for now with some restart flags (e.g. restart: always) but if a whole VM goes down, I think it’ll defeat that solution.

Was really fun and easy to set up the cluster. The overlay networks are cool, though the thing from Weave is definitely a cut above. Maybe K8N is the best alternative ffor now?

Kubernetes cluster manager would be most suitable for service scheduling.

Have you tried the Apcera Platform? You can orchestrate Docker workloads across nodes with no effort and it even includes persistent storage.
