Understanding GigaOm Radar

To compare Kubernetes Resource Management solutions, GigaOm plots vendors along a chart (or “Radar”) according to their features, platform, maturity, and innovation. The closer to the center of the Radar a vendor appears, the more they strike a balance between maturity in the marketplace and innovation to stay ahead of the competition. This analysis also compares whether a vendor has a focus on narrow features versus building a broader platform.

GigaOm’s Matt Jallo evaluated 10 vendors on factors related to market segment, deployment model, capabilities, and five critical business criteria. Spot by NetApp achieved high rankings across these categories, demonstrating capabilities that surpassed other vendors.

“Spot is a widely recognized leader in cloud resource management, and Ocean is a capable and rapidly improving offering for Kubernetes resource management.”
