Harbor vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Harbor as "Manage and serve container images in a secure environment (created at VMware)". Harbor is an open source cloud native registry that stores, signs, and scans container images for vulnerabilities Harbor solves common challenges by delivering trust, compliance, performance, and interoperability. It fills a gap for organ. 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.
Harbor can be classified as a tool in the "Docker Registry" category, while DevSpace Cloud is grouped under "Container Tools".
Some of the features offered by Harbor are:
- Multi-tenant content signing and validation
- Image replication between instances
- Extensible API and graphical UI
On the other hand, DevSpace Cloud provides the following key features:
- Strict Namespace Isolation and Secure Multi-Tenancy
- Admin UI for Managing Users & Permissions
- Optimized for Self-Service & Great Developer Experience
