Kubestone vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Kubestone as "Benchmarking Operator for Kubernetes". It is a benchmarking Operator that can evaluate the performance of Kubernetes installations. Benchmarks runs are defined as Custom Resources and executed in the cluster using Kubernetes resources: Pods, Jobs, Deployments and Services. 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.
Kubestone and DevSpace Cloud belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Kubestone are:
- Supports common set of benchmarks to measure: CPU, Disk, Network and Application performance
- Fine-grained control over Kubernetes Scheduling primitives: Affinity, Anti-Affinity, Tolerations, Storage Classes and Node Selection
- Cloud Native: Benchmarks runs are defined as Custom Resources and executed in the cluster using Kubernetes resources: Pods, Jobs, Deployments and Services
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
