Eureka vs Serf: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Serf? Service orchestration and management tool. 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.

Eureka and Serf belong to "Open Source Service Discovery" category of the tech stack.

Eureka and Serf are both open source tools. It seems that Eureka with 7.88K GitHub stars and 2.16K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Serf with 4.69K GitHub stars and 467 GitHub forks.
