Apex vs Dkron: What are the differences?

Apex: Serverless Architecture with AWS Lambda. Apex is a small tool for deploying and managing AWS Lambda functions. With shims for languages not yet supported by Lambda, you can use Golang out of the box; Dkron: Distributed, fault tolerant job scheduling system. Dkron is a system service that runs scheduled jobs at given intervals or times, just like the cron unix service but distributed in several machines in a cluster. If a machine fails (the leader), a follower will take over and keep running the scheduled jobs without human intervention.

Apex and Dkron can be primarily classified as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apex are:

  • Supports languages Lambda does not natively support via shim, such as Go
  • Binary install (useful for continuous deployment in CI etc)
  • Project level function and resource management

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

  • Executor plugins
  • Processor plugins
  • Web UI

Apex is an open source tool with 7.84K GitHub stars and 568 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apex's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to Apex and Dkron?
      Java
      Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
      AWS Lambda
      AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the underlying compute resources for you. You can use AWS Lambda to extend other AWS services with custom logic, or create your own back-end services that operate at AWS scale, performance, and security.
      Serverless
      Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster. The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google CloudFunctions, and more.
      Azure Functions
      Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in virtually any Azure or 3rd party service as well as on-premises systems.
      Cloud Functions for Firebase
      Cloud Functions for Firebase lets you create functions that are triggered by Firebase products, such as changes to data in the Realtime Database, uploads to Cloud Storage, new user sign ups via Authentication, and conversion events in Analytics.
