DC/OS vs kops: What are the differences?

Developers describe DC/OS as "The Datacenter Operating System. The easiest way to run microservices, big data, and containers in production". Unlike traditional operating systems, DC/OS spans multiple machines within a network, aggregating their resources to maximize utilization by distributed applications. On the other hand, kops is detailed as "Production Grade K8s Installation, Upgrades, and Management". It helps you create, destroy, upgrade and maintain production-grade, highly available, Kubernetes clusters from the command line. AWS (Amazon Web Services) is currently officially supported, with GCE in beta support , and VMware vSphere in alpha, and other platforms planned.

DC/OS and kops can be primarily classified as "Cluster Management" tools.

DC/OS and kops are both open source tools. kops with 9.27K GitHub stars and 2.78K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than DC/OS with 2.17K GitHub stars and 458 GitHub forks.
