Kubenav vs Microcontainers: What are the differences?

What is Kubenav? An open source mobile app to manage Kubernetes cluster. It is the navigator for your Kubernetes clusters right in your pocket. It is a mobile and desktop app to help you manage Kubernetes clusters and stay up to date on whats going on in your clusters.

What is Microcontainers? Tiny, Portable Docker Containers. A Microcontainer contains only the OS libraries and language dependencies required to run an application and the application itself. Nothing more. Rather than starting with everything but the kitchen sink, start with the bare minimum and add dependencies on an as needed basis.

Kubenav and Microcontainers can be categorized as "Container" tools.

Some of the features offered by Kubenav are:

  • Available for mobile and desktop
  • Manage workloads like Deployments, Pods and StatefulSets in your Kubernetes cluster
  • Get an overview of other resources like Services, ConfigMaps, Persistent Volumes, Secrets and Role Bindings

On the other hand, Microcontainers provides the following key features:

  • Size — MicroContainers are small. As shown above, without changing any code the image is 22 times smaller than a typical image.
  • Fast/Easy Distribution — Because the size is so much smaller, it’s much quicker to download the image from a Docker registry (eg: Docker Hub) and therefore it can be distributed to different machines much quicker.
  • Improved Security — Less code/less programs in the container means less attack surface. And, the base OS can be more secure (more below).

Kubenav and Microcontainers are both open source tools. Microcontainers with 1.57K GitHub stars and 135 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Kubenav with 428 GitHub stars and 17 GitHub forks.

              What are some alternatives to Kubenav and Microcontainers?
              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.
