Apache Aurora vs Gardener: What are the differences?
Developers describe Apache Aurora as "An Apcahe Mesos framework for scheduling jobs, originally developed by Twitter". Apache Aurora is a service scheduler that runs on top of Mesos, enabling you to run long-running services that take advantage of Mesos' scalability, fault-tolerance, and resource isolation. On the other hand, Gardener is detailed as "Manage Kubernetes clusters across multiple cloud providers". Many Open Source tools exist which help in creating and updating single Kubernetes clusters. However, the more clusters you need the harder it becomes to operate, monitor, manage and keep all of them alive and up-to-date. And that is exactly what project Gardener focuses on.
Apache Aurora and Gardener can be categorized as "Cluster Management" tools.
Apache Aurora and Gardener are both open source tools. Gardener with 1.09K GitHub stars and 151 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Apache Aurora with 615 GitHub stars and 231 GitHub forks.
