DistributedLog vs Hutch: What are the differences?
Developers describe DistributedLog 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. On the other hand, Hutch is detailed as "Inter-Service Communication with RabbitMQ". Hutch is a Ruby library for enabling asynchronous inter-service communication in a service-oriented architecture, using RabbitMQ.
DistributedLog and Hutch can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.
Some of the features offered by DistributedLog are:
- High Performance
- Durable and Consistent
- Efficient Fan-in and Fan-out
On the other hand, Hutch provides the following key features:
- A simple way to define consumers (queues are automatically created and bound to the exchange with the appropriate binding keys)
- An executable and CLI for running consumers (akin to rake resque:work)
- Automatic setup of the central exchange
DistributedLog and Hutch are both open source tools. DistributedLog with 2.25K GitHub stars and 283 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Hutch with 712 GitHub stars and 103 GitHub forks.
