Squid vs Zookeeper: What are the differences?

What is Squid? A caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. Squid reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. It runs on most available operating systems, including Windows and is licensed under the GNU GPL.

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.

Squid can be classified as a tool in the "Web Cache" category, while Zookeeper is grouped under "Open Source Service Discovery".

Squid is an open source tool with 578 GitHub stars and 204 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Squid's open source repository on GitHub.
