Consul vs zetcd: What are the differences?

Developers describe Consul as "A tool for service discovery, monitoring and configuration". Consul is a tool for service discovery and configuration. Consul is distributed, highly available, and extremely scalable. On the other hand, zetcd is detailed as "Serve the Apache Zookeeper API but back it with an etcd cluster". A ZooKeeper "personality" for etcd. Point a ZooKeeper client at zetcd to dispatch the operations on an etcd cluster. Protocol encoding and decoding heavily based on go-zookeeper.

Consul and zetcd can be primarily classified as "Open Source Service Discovery" tools.

Consul and zetcd are both open source tools. It seems that Consul with 16.4K GitHub stars and 2.85K forks on GitHub has more adoption than zetcd with 886 GitHub stars and 58 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to Consul and zetcd?
          etcd
          etcd is a distributed key value store that provides a reliable way to store data across a cluster of machines. It’s open-source and available on GitHub. etcd gracefully handles master elections during network partitions and will tolerate machine failure, including the master.
          Zookeeper
          A centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services. All of these kinds of services are used in some form or another by distributed applications.
          SkyDNS
          SkyDNS is a distributed service for announcement and discovery of services. It leverages Raft for high-availability and consensus, and utilizes DNS queries to discover available services. This is done by leveraging SRV records in DNS, with special meaning given to subdomains, priorities and weights (more info here: http://blog.gopheracademy.com/skydns).
          Ambassador
          Map services to arbitrary URLs in a single, declarative YAML file. Configure routes with CORS support, circuit breakers, timeouts, and more. Replace your Kubernetes ingress controller. Route gRPC, WebSockets, or HTTP.
          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.

          All our services use Consul for discovery, configuration and cluster management (auto scaling, health monitoring, dynamic reconfiguration, leader elections)

          Discovery service. Some configuration is stored in consul.
