Hyper vs Tectonic: What are the differences?
Developers describe Hyper as "On-Demand Container, Per-Second Billing". Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries. On the other hand, Tectonic is detailed as "The smartest way to run your container infrastructure". A CoreOS + Kubernetes platform to run Linux containers.
Hyper and Tectonic can be categorized as "Containers as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Hyper are:
- Hyper is able to launch instances in sub-second. Also, Hyper requires the minimal resource footprint: ~12MB mem
- Hyper is immune from the "shared kernel" problem in container
- Hyper is hypervisor agnostic
On the other hand, Tectonic provides the following key features:
- Deploy code on a container-native stack
- Flexible architectures for each app
- Automatic load balancing for services
