Hystrix vs Zookeeper: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Zookeeper? Because coordinating distributed systems is a Zoo. A centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services. All of these kinds of services are used in some form or another by distributed applications.

Hystrix can be classified as a tool in the "Fault Tolerance Tools" category, while Zookeeper is grouped under "Open Source Service Discovery".

Hystrix is an open source tool with 17.7K GitHub stars and 3.63K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Hystrix's open source repository on GitHub.

Uber Technologies, Pinterest, and Shopify are some of the popular companies that use Zookeeper, whereas Hystrix is used by Intuit, Zalando, and Bodybuilding.com. Zookeeper has a broader approval, being mentioned in 116 company stacks & 48 developers stacks; compared to Hystrix, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Hystrix and Zookeeper?
Akka
Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM.
Envoy
Originally built at Lyft, Envoy is a high performance C++ distributed proxy designed for single services and applications, as well as a communication bus and “universal data plane” designed for large microservice “service mesh” architectures.
Istio
Istio is an open platform for providing a uniform way to integrate microservices, manage traffic flow across microservices, enforce policies and aggregate telemetry data. Istio's control plane provides an abstraction layer over the underlying cluster management platform, such as Kubernetes, Mesos, etc.
Zuul
It is the front door for all requests from devices and websites to the backend of the Netflix streaming application. As an edge service application, It is built to enable dynamic routing, monitoring, resiliency, and security. Routing is an integral part of a microservice architecture.
Polly
It is a .NET resilience and transient-fault-handling library that allows developers to express policies such as Retry, Circuit Breaker, Timeout, Bulkhead Isolation, and Fallback in a fluent and thread-safe manner.
