etcd vs Semaphore: What are the differences?

Developers describe etcd as "A distributed consistent key-value store for shared configuration and service discovery". etcd is a distributed key value store that provides a reliable way to store data across a cluster of machines. It’s open-source and available on GitHub. etcd gracefully handles master elections during network partitions and will tolerate machine failure, including the master. On the other hand, Semaphore is detailed as "The continuous integration and delivery platform powering the world’s best engineering teams". Semaphore is the fastest continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) platform on the market, powering the world’s best engineering teams.

etcd can be classified as a tool in the "Open Source Service Discovery" category, while Semaphore is grouped under "Continuous Integration".

"Service discovery" is the primary reason why developers consider etcd over the competitors, whereas "Easy setup" was stated as the key factor in picking Semaphore.

etcd is an open source tool with 25.9K GitHub stars and 5.26K GitHub forks. Here's a link to etcd's open source repository on GitHub.

Pipefy, Weroom, and GrowthHackers are some of the popular companies that use Semaphore, whereas etcd is used by Beam, Giant Swarm, and CNCFlora. Semaphore has a broader approval, being mentioned in 40 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to etcd, which is listed in 27 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

Breaking a monolith into microservices and handling the scaling and health of new services as they come only. This should ideally help to reduce the overhead needed to get a service online. We have all of this being handled by custom URLs and health checks being done at the expense of infrastructure setup time and maintenance (VM sprawl). Initially, I am looking at Consul for the TLS proxy and security options as well as the KV store which may prove useful in cross datacenter environments.

What are some alternatives to etcd and Semaphore?
Consul
Consul is a tool for service discovery and configuration. Consul is distributed, highly available, and extremely scalable.
Zookeeper
A centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services. All of these kinds of services are used in some form or another by distributed applications.
Redis
Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
MongoDB
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
Cassandra
Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
