Eureka vs linkerd: What are the differences?

Developers describe Eureka as "AWS Service registry for resilient mid-tier load balancing and failover". Eureka is a REST (Representational State Transfer) based service that is primarily used in the AWS cloud for locating services for the purpose of load balancing and failover of middle-tier servers. On the other hand, linkerd is detailed as "Twitter-Style Operability for Microservices". 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.

Eureka belongs to "Open Source Service Discovery" category of the tech stack, while linkerd can be primarily classified under "Microservices Tools".

Eureka and linkerd are both open source tools. Eureka with 7.98K GitHub stars and 2.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than linkerd with 5.01K GitHub stars and 501 GitHub forks.
