Following on from question #7860 where I explained:

Cassandra Cluster Manager (CCM) is a script that allows users to easily create, manage and destroy a small Cassandra cluster on a local machine. Developers and administrator typically run ccm on their laptops or desktops so they can quickly run tests against a specific version of a Cassandra cluster.

ccm is a simple script that for launching clusters on a laptop/desktop. It isn't really a cluster "manager". It's just a dev tool that will download a version of open-source Cassandra, configure it with minimal settings (usually sticks to defaults) and installs it -- all in one command.

On the other hand, Kubernetes is a full-featured orchestration tool for managing the full lifecycle of containers in a cluster. It will automate the deployment of containerised applications, scaling, recover when an app instance goes down, monitor and a long list of other management tasks.

There really is no comparison between the two -- one is a script, the other is an enterprise solution. Cheers!

Thanks for the explanation Eric. I noted it down but I forgot to accept the answer.
