What is HyScale? An abstraction framework over Kubernetes. It is an Application Centric Abstraction Framework over K8s. It takes a simple, short Declarative definition of your service config, given the config it generates Dockerfile, Container Image, Kubernetes Manifests (YAMLs) and deploys to any Kubernetes Cluster returning back the app URL. Also it abstracts & simplifies Deployment Troubleshooting and Runtime Ops.
What is Katacontainers? Open source project delivering the security of VMs with the speed of containers. It is an open source container runtime, building lightweight virtual machines that seamlessly plug into the containers ecosystem.
HyScale and Katacontainers can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

- App-centric approach
- DevOps on autopilot
- Simplified troubleshooting
On the other hand, Katacontainers provides the following key features:
- Runs in a dedicated kernel, providing isolation of network, I/O and memory and can utilize hardware-enforced isolation with virtualization VT extensions
- Supports industry standards including OCI container format, Kubernetes CRI interface, as well as legacy virtualization technologies
- Delivers consistent performance as standard Linux containers
