Gunnery vs StackStorm: What are the differences?
Developers describe Gunnery as "Multipurpose task execution tool for distributed systems with web-based interface". If your application is divided into multiple servers, you are probably connecting to them via ssh and executing over and over the same commands. Clearing caches, restarting services, backups, checking health. Wouldn't it be cool if you could do that from browser or smartphone? Gunnery is here for you!. On the other hand, StackStorm is detailed as "Open Source IFTTT for Ops: event-driven automation, security responses, auto-remediation with workflow engine & ChatOps". StackStorm is a platform for integration and automation across services and tools. It ties together your existing infrastructure and application environment so you can more easily automate that environment -- with a particular focus on taking actions in response to events.
Gunnery and StackStorm can be primarily classified as "Remote Server Task Execution" tools.
Some of the features offered by Gunnery are:
- Support for wide variety of tools
- Designed for distributed systems
- Usable for deployment, service control, backups
On the other hand, StackStorm provides the following key features:
- Automations tie events to actions you’d like to take, using a rules engine and, if you want, comprehensive workflow. Automations are your operational patterns summarized as code.
- StackStorm automations work either by starting with your existing scripts – just add simple meta data – or by authoring the automations within StackStorm.
- Automations are the heart of StackStorm – they allow you to share operational patterns, boost productivity, and automate away the routine.
Gunnery and StackStorm are both open source tools. It seems that StackStorm with 3.32K GitHub stars and 439 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Gunnery with 685 GitHub stars and 72 GitHub forks.

You can tie anything with anything. This approach improves existing configuration management and monitoring solutions to deliver automation in completely new, more efficient way.
So if you want to create something like smart self-healing infrastructure or maybe just rule your 100 servers from slack chat - StackStorm can help with that. And it's completely OpenSource!
