Helios vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Helios as "Docker container orchestration platform, by Spotify". Helios is a Docker orchestration platform for deploying and managing containers across an entire fleet of servers. Helios provides a HTTP API as well as a command-line client to interact with servers running your containers. 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.
Helios and DevSpace Cloud can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
