Eureka vs SkyDNS: 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 SkyDNS? Distributed service for announcement and discovery of services. SkyDNS is a distributed service for announcement and discovery of services. It leverages Raft for high-availability and consensus, and utilizes DNS queries to discover available services. This is done by leveraging SRV records in DNS, with special meaning given to subdomains, priorities and weights (more info here: http://blog.gopheracademy.com/skydns).

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

Eureka and SkyDNS are both open source tools. It seems that Eureka with 7.98K GitHub stars and 2.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than SkyDNS with 1.97K GitHub stars and 301 GitHub forks.
