Docker Immutable Workstation vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
What is Docker Immutable Workstation? Docker based portable Workstation. Quite simply, I can easily control the dev environment, rebuild it at will, and run programs "on my latop" when they are not installed or configured on the laptop. In fact I think the best part of this is configuration for my whole dev machine is sgtored on github, and can be re-created anywhere easily. With the volume mounted, I can then use emacs / konsole running inside a container, and adjust files that are stored on my local laptop.
What is DevSpace Cloud? 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.
Docker Immutable Workstation and DevSpace Cloud can be categorized as "Container" tools.
