Azure Service Fabric vs seneca: 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, seneca is detailed as "A Micro-Services toolkit for Node.js". Seneca is a toolkit for organizing the business logic of your app. You can break down your app into "stuff that happens", rather than focusing on data models or managing dependencies.
Azure Service Fabric and seneca 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, seneca provides the following key features:
- pattern matching: a wonderfully flexible way to handle business requirements
- transport independence: how messages get to the right server is not something you should have to worry about
- maturity: 5 years in production (before we called it micro-services), but was once taken out by lightning
Azure Service Fabric and seneca are both open source tools. Azure Service Fabric with 2.57K GitHub stars and 304 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than seneca with 3 GitHub stars and 1 GitHub forks.
