Dumb-init vs Helios: What are the differences?

Dumb-init: A minimal init system for Linux containers, by Yelp. dumb-init runs as PID 1, acting like a simple init system. It launches a single process and then proxies all received signals to a session rooted at that child process. Since your actual process is no longer PID 1, when it receives signals from dumb-init, the default signal handlers will be applied, and your process will behave as you would expect. If your process dies, dumb-init will also die, taking care to clean up any other processes that might still remain; Helios: Docker container orchestration platform, by Spotify. Helios is a Docker orchestration platform for deploying and managing containers across an entire fleet of servers. Helios provides a HTTP API as well as a command-line client to interact with servers running your containers.

Dumb-init and Helios can be categorized as "Container" tools.

Dumb-init and Helios are both open source tools. It seems that Dumb-init with 3.83K GitHub stars and 212 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Helios with 2K GitHub stars and 229 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to Dumb-init and Helios?
          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.
          Docker Compose
          With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
          Rancher
          Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
          Docker Swarm
          Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
          Docker Machine
          Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
