It depends on the context in which it is needed. From a developers point of view Swarm is easier to use/test/scale primarily reason being it is a very simple setup, however in a real time production environment with all of its complexity, Kubernetes rules by an order of magnitude.

In Developers point of view Kubernetes is a bit more complex, but it handles the complex needs of an enterprise far better. Even simple concepts like load balancing were thought through with k8s using a much more robust load balancing “system” where Swarm simply uses DNS round-robin. So, if you’re a developer, Swarm is simple. If you are responsible for keeping an enterprise running, Kubernetes is the king.
