Skaffold vs KubeAdvisor: What are the differences?

Developers describe Skaffold as "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. 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.

Skaffold and KubeAdvisor belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

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, 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

Skaffold is an open source tool with 9.04K GitHub stars and 844 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Skaffold's open source repository on GitHub.

            What are some alternatives to KubeAdvisor 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.
