Disque vs DistributedLog: What are the differences?
Developers describe Disque as "In-memory, distributed job queue". Disque is an ongoing experiment to build a distributed, in-memory, message broker. Its goal is to capture the essence of the "Redis as a jobs queue" use case, which is usually implemented using blocking list operations, and move it into an ad-hoc, self-contained, scalable, and fault tolerant design, with simple to understand properties and guarantees, but still resembling Redis in terms of simplicity, performance, and implementation as a C non-blocking networked server. On the other hand, DistributedLog is detailed as "High-performance replicated log service, by Twitter". DistributedLog (DL) is a high-performance, replicated log service, offering durability, replication and strong consistency as essentials for building reliable distributed systems.
Disque and DistributedLog belong to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack.
Disque and DistributedLog are both open source tools. Disque with 7.37K GitHub stars and 516 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than DistributedLog with 2.25K GitHub stars and 283 GitHub forks.
