Dumb-init vs Torus: 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; Torus: A distributed storage system by CoreOS. Torus provides a resource pool and basic file primitives from a set of daemons running atop multiple nodes. These primitives are made consistent by being append-only and coordinated by etcd. From these primitives, a Torus server can support multiple types of volumes, the semantics of which can be broken into subprojects.

Dumb-init and Torus belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Dumb-init and Torus are both open source tools. Dumb-init with 3.83K GitHub stars and 212 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Torus with 1.79K GitHub stars and 170 GitHub forks.

            What are some alternatives to Dumb-init and Torus?
            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.
