Tutum vs KubeAdvisor: What are the differences?
What is Tutum? Build, deploy, monitor, and scale Docker containers. Tutum lets developers easily manage and run lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. AWS-like control, Heroku-like ease. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale in Tutum.
What is KubeAdvisor? 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.
Tutum and KubeAdvisor can be categorized as "Container" tools.
Some of the features offered by Tutum are:
- Deploy from Docker Hub
- Free private Docker registry
- CLI Tool
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

We were looking for a solution to run Docker containers on a PaaS platform, without the need to manage everything by yourself. Before Tutum, there were exactly two options: Either run Docker on an IaaS for yourself, or use a PaaS without Docker. Both are not satisfying.
Enter Tutum: Tutum offers all the PaaS-like flexibility and comfort, but for Docker containers. This basically means that you create a Docker container, push it to Tutum, and then say: Now scale this container and use 5 instances instead of 1. And it just works.
Scale down again? Works either. Link containers to others? Works. Working with custom domains and CNAMEs? Works, too. And so on and so on…
In the end, it comes down to: Push a container, set the constraints, and let Tutum do the rest.
For anyone who is looking for a reliable, affordable and easy-to-use PaaS-like solution, but for Docker containers, Tutum IMHO is absolutely the way to go :-).
And, one more thing: They have awesome support - simply drop them a line, and they'll take care of you - fast, friendly, helpful. That's the way it should be.
Hence, to summarize, I can only recommend Tutum to anyone :-).
One of the things that take more time when you are creating an application is the environments setup. By using Tutum, we can delegate the heavy work related to servers and focus in our business. The interface is very intuitive and allows you to quickly manage your servers. I highly recommend Tutum for anyone who doesn't want to waste time in complicated server configurations.
I'm newbie about using Docker. But now I use DaaS for my blog. Tutum's UI/UX is awesome. Look & feel is simple, and support is very friendly and high quality.
