Micronetes vs KubeAdvisor: What are the differences?
Developers describe Micronetes as "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. On the other hand, KubeAdvisor is detailed as "It helps DevOps adopt best practices for Kubernetes". It helps teams adopt best practices to accelerate the adoption of Kubernetes, and optimize their existing stack, with machine learning. It scans K8s to make infrastructure and cloud-native applications reliable, resilient, and observable.
Micronetes and KubeAdvisor 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, KubeAdvisor provides the following key features:
- Performance by continuously watching throttled containers/apps and recommending improvements
- Utilization by comparing used resources with the available capacity to reallocate them based on variable workloads
- Cost Optimization by suggesting changes at the VM level to save money in case of cloud infrastructure or identify the best configurations if you are running Kubernetes on-prem
Micronetes is an open source tool with 656 GitHub stars and 30 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Micronetes's open source repository on GitHub.
