Hypernetes vs Microcontainers: What are the differences?

Developers describe Hypernetes as "Multi-Tenant Kubernetes Distribution". Hypernetes envisions a future of "Container-as-a-Service without IaaS". The idea is to combine the orchestration power in Kubernetes and the runtime isolation in Hyper to build the truly secure multi-tenant CaaS platform. On the other hand, Microcontainers is detailed as "Tiny, Portable Docker Containers". A Microcontainer contains only the OS libraries and language dependencies required to run an application and the application itself. Nothing more. Rather than starting with everything but the kitchen sink, start with the bare minimum and add dependencies on an as needed basis.

Hypernetes and Microcontainers can be categorized as "Container" tools.

Hypernetes and Microcontainers are both open source tools. It seems that Microcontainers with 1.56K GitHub stars and 137 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hypernetes with 546 GitHub stars and 47 GitHub forks.
