Lando vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Lando as "An open source, local development environment and DevOps tool *". It's a free, open source, cross-platform, local development environment and DevOps tool built on Docker container technology and developed by Tandem. Designed to work with most major languages, frameworks and services, it provides an easy way for developers of all skill levels to specify simple or complex requirements for their projects, and then quickly get to work on them. 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.
