Envoy vs Trailblazer: What are the differences?

Developers describe Envoy as "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. On the other hand, Trailblazer is detailed as "A new architecture for Rails". 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.

Envoy can be classified as a tool in the "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" category, while Trailblazer is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Envoy and Trailblazer are both open source tools. Envoy with 10.5K GitHub stars and 1.64K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Trailblazer with 2.92K GitHub stars and 131 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Envoy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 23 company stacks & 29 developers stacks; compared to Trailblazer, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

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.
    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.
    AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)
    With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall flow of information. If one EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the traffic to the remaining running EC2 instances. If the failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the traffic to that instance. Elastic Load Balancing offers clients a single point of contact, and it can also serve as the first line of defense against attacks on your network. You can offload the work of encryption and decryption to Elastic Load Balancing, so your servers can focus on their main task.
