Hystrix vs Rails Spring: What are the differences?

Hystrix: Latency and fault tolerance library. Hystrix is a latency and fault tolerance library designed to isolate points of access to remote systems, services and 3rd party libraries, stop cascading failure and enable resilience in complex distributed systems where failure is inevitable; Rails Spring: Rails application preloader. Spring is a Rails application preloader. It speeds up development by keeping your application running in the background so you don't need to boot it every time you run a test, rake task or migration.

Hystrix can be classified as a tool in the "Fault Tolerance Tools" category, while Rails Spring is grouped under "Rails Testing".

Some of the features offered by Hystrix are:

  • Latency and Fault Tolerance
  • Realtime Operations
  • Concurrency

On the other hand, Rails Spring provides the following key features:

  • Totally automatic
  • no need to explicitly start and stop the background process
  • Reloads your application code on each run

Hystrix and Rails Spring are both open source tools. It seems that Hystrix with 17.7K GitHub stars and 3.63K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rails Spring with 2.51K GitHub stars and 275 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Hystrix has a broader approval, being mentioned in 12 company stacks & 8 developers stacks; compared to Rails Spring, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.
