At Namespace Labs, we're excited about Kubernetes, because it has such a fantastic feature-set and ecosystem. But Kubernetes is too low-level for most teams to target for application development, it's a lingua franca of the data center, an assembly language if you will.
But for infrastructure and platform teams, Kubernetes is an important enabler: it standardizes maintainability, resource management, and interoperability.
Namespace tackles this challenge by offering application developers a higher level, application-centric view. Developers get a Platform-as-a-Service experience: write code, push code, declare and use dependencies. While infrastructure teams control how the high-level application definition gets compiled into lower-level resources. The best of both worlds.
Our how someone told us, "you're humanizing Kubernetes".
