Gogs vs VMware vSphere: What are the differences?

What is Gogs? A self-hosted Git service written in Go. The goal of this project is to make the easiest, fastest and most painless way to set up a self-hosted Git service. With Go, this can be done in independent binary distribution across ALL platforms that Go supports, including Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

What is VMware vSphere? Free bare-metal hypervisor that virtualizes servers so you can consolidate your applications on less hardware. vSphere is the world鈥檚 leading server virtualization platform. Run fewer servers and reduce capital and operating costs using VMware vSphere to build a cloud computing infrastructure.

Gogs can be classified as a tool in the "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category, while VMware vSphere is grouped under "Virtualization Platform".

Some of the features offered by Gogs are:

  • Activity timeline
  • SSH/HTTP(S) protocol support
  • SMTP/LDAP/reverse proxy authentication support

On the other hand, VMware vSphere provides the following key features:

  • Powerful Server Virtualization
  • Network Services
  • Efficient Storage

"Self-hosted github like service" is the top reason why over 32 developers like Gogs, while over 6 developers mention "Strong host isolation" as the leading cause for choosing VMware vSphere.

Gogs is an open source tool with 30.6K GitHub stars and 3.54K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Gogs's open source repository on GitHub.

CircleCI, MIT, and Ansible are some of the popular companies that use VMware vSphere, whereas Gogs is used by Write.as, OSInet, and GameDuell. VMware vSphere has a broader approval, being mentioned in 55 company stacks & 23 developers stacks; compared to Gogs, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

      I installed Gogs after a few repos I planned to use on GitHub disappeared without explanation, and after Microsoft's acquisition of same, it made me think about the over-centralization of community-developed software. A self-hosted solution that enables easy point-and-click mirroring of important repositories for my projects, both in-house and 3rd-party, ensures I won't be bitten by upstream catastrophes. (So far, Microsoft's stewardship has been fine, but always be prepared). It's also a very nice way to host one's own private repos before they're ready for prime-time on github.

      Gogs is written in Go and is easy to install and configure, much more so than GitLab. The only major feature I wish it had is an integrated code review tool, but the web plugin hypothes.is https://stackshare.io/hypothes-is/hypothes-is actually is quite suitable as a code review tool. Set up a group for each code review, and just highlight lines to add comments in pull request pages of Gogs.

      We use VMWare vSphere to allow us to virtualise our environment. This means that we don't have to have as many physical servers to split our infrastructure as we would otherwise. vSphere also enables us to move our virtual machines between different servers as required such as if we need to perform essential maintenance on a host while keeping to our belief of having high availability of all of our services wherever possible.

      vSphere provides a central management interface for the entire stack. In addition to application level redundancy, VM level redundancy is offered through HA and DRS.
