Envoy vs Hystrix: What are the differences?

What is Envoy? C++ front/service proxy. Originally built at Lyft, Envoy is a high performance C++ distributed proxy designed for single services and applications, as well as a communication bus and “universal data plane” designed for large microservice “service mesh” architectures.

What is Hystrix? Latency and fault tolerance library. Hystrix is a latency and fault tolerance library designed to isolate points of access to remote systems, services and 3rd party libraries, stop cascading failure and enable resilience in complex distributed systems where failure is inevitable.

Envoy can be classified as a tool in the "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" category, while Hystrix is grouped under "Fault Tolerance Tools".

Envoy and Hystrix are both open source tools. Hystrix with 17.7K GitHub stars and 3.63K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Envoy with 10.2K GitHub stars and 1.58K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Envoy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 18 company stacks & 14 developers stacks; compared to Hystrix, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

      Istio
      Istio is an open platform for providing a uniform way to integrate microservices, manage traffic flow across microservices, enforce policies and aggregate telemetry data. Istio's control plane provides an abstraction layer over the underlying cluster management platform, such as Kubernetes, Mesos, etc.
      nginx
      nginx [engine x] is an HTTP and reverse proxy server, as well as a mail proxy server, written by Igor Sysoev. According to Netcraft nginx served or proxied 30.46% of the top million busiest sites in Jan 2018.
      linkerd
      linkerd is an out-of-process network stack for microservices. It functions as a transparent RPC proxy, handling everything needed to make inter-service RPC safe and sane--including load-balancing, service discovery, instrumentation, and routing.
      Trailblazer
      Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.
      HAProxy
      HAProxy (High Availability Proxy) is a free, very fast and reliable solution offering high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications.
