Jaeger vs Thanos: What are the differences?

Jaeger: Distributed tracing system released as open source by Uber. Jaeger, a Distributed Tracing System; Thanos: Highly available Prometheus setup with long term storage capabilities. Thanos is a set of components that can be composed into a highly available metric system with unlimited storage capacity. It can be added seamlessly on top of existing Prometheus deployments and leverages the Prometheus 2.0 storage format to cost-efficiently store historical metric data in any object storage while retaining fast query latencies. Additionally, it provides a global query view across all Prometheus installations and can merge data from Prometheus HA pairs on the fly.

Jaeger and Thanos can be primarily classified as "Monitoring" tools.

Jaeger and Thanos are both open source tools. Jaeger with 8.42K GitHub stars and 848 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Thanos with 3.83K GitHub stars and 429 GitHub forks.
