Helios vs Torus: What are the differences?

Developers describe Helios as "Docker container orchestration platform, by Spotify". Helios is a Docker orchestration platform for deploying and managing containers across an entire fleet of servers. Helios provides a HTTP API as well as a command-line client to interact with servers running your containers. On the other hand, Torus is detailed as "A distributed storage system by CoreOS". Torus provides a resource pool and basic file primitives from a set of daemons running atop multiple nodes. These primitives are made consistent by being append-only and coordinated by etcd. From these primitives, a Torus server can support multiple types of volumes, the semantics of which can be broken into subprojects.

Helios and Torus can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

Helios and Torus are both open source tools. It seems that Helios with 2K GitHub stars and 229 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Torus with 1.79K GitHub stars and 170 GitHub forks.
