Pallet vs VisualOps: What are the differences?
What is Pallet? Automates controlling and provisioning cloud server instances. DevOps for the JVM. The machines being managed require no special dependencies to be installed. As long as they have bash and ssh running, they can be used with pallet. Pallet has no central server to set up and maintain - it simply runs on demand. You can run it from anywhere, even over a remote REPL connection.
What is VisualOps? Visual DevOps Automation for Amazon Web Services. VisualOps has a WYSIWYG editor to design, configure and provision your AWS cloud applications. Once the applications are deployed, VisualOps continuously monitors and manages the apps to ensure they always run in the defined states.
Pallet and VisualOps belong to "Server Configuration and Automation" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Pallet are:
- Everything in Version Control
- Jar File Distribution of Crates
- Provisioning, Configuration and Administration
On the other hand, VisualOps provides the following key features:
- drag-n-drop components to build your AWS infrastructure
- clicks instances to setup the software configuration (package, file, code, etc.)
- single click to deploy, within minutes the app is ready to use!
