Skaffold vs DevSpace Cloud: What are the differences?

Skaffold: Easy and Repeatable Kubernetes Development. Skaffold is a command line tool that facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes applications. You can iterate on your application source code locally then deploy to local or remote Kubernetes clusters. Skaffold handles the workflow for building, pushing and deploying your application. It can also be used in an automated context such as a CI/CD pipeline to leverage the same workflow and tooling when moving applications to production; 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.

Skaffold and DevSpace Cloud can be categorized as "Container" tools.

Some of the features offered by Skaffold are:

  • No server-side component. No overhead to your cluster.
  • Detect changes in your source code and automatically build/push/deploy.
  • Image tag management. Stop worrying about updating the image tags in Kubernetes manifests to push out changes during development.

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

Skaffold is an open source tool with 9.08K GitHub stars and 848 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Skaffold's open source repository on GitHub.

            What are some alternatives to DevSpace Cloud and Skaffold?
            Kubernetes
            Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
            Docker Compose
            With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
            Rancher
            Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
            Docker Swarm
            Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
            Helm
            Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
