Microcontainers vs Torus: What are the differences?

What is Microcontainers? 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.

What is Torus? A distributed storage system by CoreOS. Torus provides a resource pool and basic file primitives from a set of daemons running atop multiple nodes. These primitives are made consistent by being append-only and coordinated by etcd. From these primitives, a Torus server can support multiple types of volumes, the semantics of which can be broken into subprojects.

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

Microcontainers and Torus are both open source tools. Torus with 1.79K GitHub stars and 170 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Microcontainers with 1.56K GitHub stars and 137 GitHub forks.

              What are some alternatives to Microcontainers and Torus?
              Kubernetes
              Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
              Docker Compose
              With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
              Rancher
              Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
              Docker Swarm
              Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
              Docker Machine
              Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
