Disque vs Sparrow: What are the differences?

What is Disque? 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.

What is Sparrow? A really fast lightweight queue written in Ruby that speaks memcache. Sparrow keeps messages in memory, but persists them to disk, using Sqlite, when the queue is shutdown.

Disque and Sparrow can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.

Disque is an open source tool with 7.37K GitHub stars and 516 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Disque's open source repository on GitHub.
