Portworx vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Portworx as "Manage any database or stateful service on any infrastructure using any container scheduler". It is the cloud native storage company that enterprises depend on to reduce the cost and complexity of rapidly deploying containerized applications across multiple clouds and on-prem environments. 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.
Portworx and DevSpace Cloud are primarily classified as "Cloud Storage" and "Container" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Portworx are:
- Data Mobility
- Backup, recovery, migration made easy
- High Availability
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
