Hipache vs Vulcand: What are the differences?
Hipache: A distributed HTTP and websocket proxy. Hipache is a distributed proxy designed to route high volumes of http and websocket traffic to unusually large numbers of virtual hosts, in a highly dynamic topology where backends are added and removed several times per second. It is particularly well-suited for PaaS (platform-as-a-service) and other environments that are both business-critical and multi-tenant; Vulcand: Programmatic load balancer backed by Etcd. Vulcand is a programmatic extendable proxy for microservices and API management. It is inspired by Hystrix and powers Mailgun microservices infrastructure.
Hipache and Vulcand belong to "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" category of the tech stack.
Hipache and Vulcand are both open source tools. It seems that Vulcand with 2.8K GitHub stars and 214 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hipache with 2.25K GitHub stars and 264 GitHub forks.
