AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) vs troposphere: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) as "Automatically distribute your incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances". With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall flow of information. If one EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the traffic to the remaining running EC2 instances. If the failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the traffic to that instance. Elastic Load Balancing offers clients a single point of contact, and it can also serve as the first line of defense against attacks on your network. You can offload the work of encryption and decryption to Elastic Load Balancing, so your servers can focus on their main task. On the other hand, troposphere is detailed as "Library to create AWS CloudFormation descriptions". The troposphere library allows for easier creation of the AWS CloudFormation JSON by writing Python code to describe the AWS resources. troposphere also includes some basic support for OpenStack resources via Heat.

AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) and troposphere are primarily classified as "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" and "AWS" tools respectively.

troposphere is an open source tool with 3.62K GitHub stars and 1.11K GitHub forks. Here's a link to troposphere's open source repository on GitHub.

What are some alternatives to AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) and troposphere?
HAProxy
HAProxy (High Availability Proxy) is a free, very fast and reliable solution offering high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications.
Traefik
A modern HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer that makes deploying microservices easy. Traefik integrates with your existing infrastructure components and configures itself automatically and dynamically.
Envoy
Originally built at Lyft, Envoy is a high performance C++ distributed proxy designed for single services and applications, as well as a communication bus and “universal data plane” designed for large microservice “service mesh” architectures.
DigitalOcean Load Balancer
Load Balancers are a highly available, fully-managed service that work right out of the box and can be deployed as fast as a Droplet. Load Balancers distribute incoming traffic across your infrastructure to increase your application's availability.
GLBC
It is a GCE L7 load balancer controller that manages external loadbalancers configured through the Kubernetes Ingress API.
