Azure Service Fabric vs linkerd: What are the differences?

Developers describe Azure Service Fabric as "Distributed systems platform that simplifies build, package, deploy, and management of scalable microservices apps". Azure Service Fabric is a distributed systems platform that makes it easy to package, deploy, and manage scalable and reliable microservices. Service Fabric addresses the significant challenges in developing and managing cloud apps. On the other hand, linkerd is detailed as "Twitter-Style Operability for Microservices". linkerd is an out-of-process network stack for microservices. It functions as a transparent RPC proxy, handling everything needed to make inter-service RPC safe and sane--including load-balancing, service discovery, instrumentation, and routing.

Azure Service Fabric and linkerd can be primarily classified as "Microservices" tools.

Some of the features offered by Azure Service Fabric are:

  • Simplify microservices development and application lifecycle management
  • Reliably scale and orchestrate containers and microservices
  • Data-aware platform for low-latency, high-throughput workloads with stateful containers or microservices

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

  • Adaptive load-balancing
  • Fine-grained instrumentation
  • Abstractions over service discovery

Azure Service Fabric and linkerd are both open source tools. linkerd with 5.02K GitHub stars and 501 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Azure Service Fabric with 2.57K GitHub stars and 304 GitHub forks.

Kubernetes
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Azure Container Service
Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else.
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.
Azure App Service
Quickly build, deploy, and scale web apps created with popular frameworks .NET, .NET Core, Node.js, Java, PHP, Ruby, or Python, in containers or running on any operating system.
