Flocker vs Furan: What are the differences?

What is Flocker? Run your databases in Docker and make them as portable as the rest of your app. Flocker is a data volume manager and multi-host Docker cluster management tool. With it you can control your data using the same tools you use for your stateless applications. This means that you can run your databases, queues and key-value stores in Docker and move them around as easily as the rest of your app.

What is Furan? A Docker build microservice that builds and pushes Docker images from a specified GitHub repository to a specified target. Furan is deployed as an essentially stateless API application, allowing it to be scaled out. Furan does not shell out to execute docker commands. It leverages the Docker Engine API.

Flocker and Furan can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

Flocker and Furan are both open source tools. It seems that Flocker with 3.19K GitHub stars and 287 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Furan with 325 GitHub stars and 9 GitHub forks.
