Eureka vs Rancher: What are the differences?

Eureka: 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; Rancher: Open Source Platform for Running a Private Container Service. 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.

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

"Easy setup and integration with spring-cloud " is the top reason why over 15 developers like Eureka, while over 89 developers mention "Easy to use" as the leading cause for choosing Rancher.

Eureka and Rancher are both open source tools. Rancher with 11.9K GitHub stars and 1.34K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Eureka with 7.98K GitHub stars and 2.2K GitHub forks.

Redox Engine, Packet, and VCCloud are some of the popular companies that use Rancher, whereas Eureka is used by Notify-e, Swingvy, and LabNetwork. Rancher has a broader approval, being mentioned in 89 company stacks & 35 developers stacks; compared to Eureka, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Eureka and Rancher?
    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.
    etcd
    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.
    Keepalived
    The main goal of this project is to provide simple and robust facilities for loadbalancing and high-availability to Linux system and Linux based infrastructures.
    Serf
    Serf is a service discovery and orchestration tool that is decentralized, highly available, and fault tolerant. Serf runs on every major platform: Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. It is extremely lightweight: it uses 5 to 10 MB of resident memory and primarily communicates using infrequent UDP messages.

    Review ofRancherRancher
    1. Consume too much unnecessary resource by just running rancher agent alone;
    2. Hard to recover from system failure
    3. Bad performance of load balancing (compare to dokcer swarm built-in LB or others).

    The whole infrastructure is managed through Rancher. It provides a simple interface to all the underlying tools - Docker, HAProxy (automatically configures load balancer from the containers).
