Kubecost vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Kubecost as "Optimize your Kubernetes". Created by a team of ex-Google cloud engineers / product managers that came together after seeing the challenges from managing microservice-based infrastructure at scale. 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.
Kubecost and DevSpace Cloud can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Some of the features offered by Kubecost are:
- Cost monitoring
- Cost allocation
- Out of cluster costs
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
