Contiv vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Contiv as "An Open Source Container Networking". It is a powerful, 100% open source networking solution for modern compute workloads. Integration and support for VM’s and Bare Metal allow you to provide a single network fabric across your infrastructure. On the other hand, DevSpace Cloud is detailed as "Secure Multi-Tenancy and On-Demand Namespace Provisioning for Kubernetes". It lets IT teams create an internal Kubernetes offering that enables their developer teams to create isolated namespaces in shared development clusters. The goal is to allow engineers to get access to Kubernetes in a self-service fashion. It restricts developers to their own namespaces allowing secure cluster sharing while handling all the admistrative overhead such as the management of the kube-context on an engineers machine.
Contiv and DevSpace Cloud can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Some of the features offered by Contiv are:
- Rich Policy Framework
On the other hand, DevSpace Cloud provides the following key features:
- Strict Namespace Isolation and Secure Multi-Tenancy
