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’s 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
