Compared to the traditional approach of using virtual machines as the basis for the development and deployment of applications running in Cloud-based infrastructures, container technology provides developers with a higher degree of portability and availability, allowing developers to build and deploy their applications in a much more efficient and flexible manner. A number of tools have been proposed to orchestrate complex applications comprising multiple containers requiring continuous monitoring and management actions to meet application-oriented and non-functional requirements. Different container orchestration tools provide different features that incur different overheads. As such, it i..
