Micronetes vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Micronetes: A local orchestrator inspired by kubernetes that makes developing and testing microservices and distributed applications easier. Developers mostly care about the projects and code they write. It's very hard today to run multiple applications (replicas or different applications) locally and set them up so that they can talk. Micronetes makes developing and testing microservices and distributed applications easier; DevSpace Cloud: 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.
Micronetes and DevSpace Cloud can be categorized as "Container" tools.
Some of the features offered by Micronetes are:
- Coordinates multiple applications running both locally and remotely
- Natively understands .NET Core projects
- Injects various environment variables to communicate various pieces of information to the application
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
