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.

            What are some alternatives to Helios and Torus?
            Apollo
            Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes.
            Kubernetes
            Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
            Docker Compose
            With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
            Rancher
            Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
            Docker Swarm
            Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
