Terraform vs Zookeeper: What are the differences?
Developers describe Terraform as "Describe your complete infrastructure as code and build resources across providers". With Terraform, you describe your complete infrastructure as code, even as it spans multiple service providers. Your servers may come from AWS, your DNS may come from CloudFlare, and your database may come from Heroku. Terraform will build all these resources across all these providers in parallel. On the other hand, Zookeeper is detailed as "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.
Terraform and Zookeeper are primarily classified as "Infrastructure Build" and "Open Source Service Discovery" tools respectively.
"Infrastructure as code" is the primary reason why developers consider Terraform over the competitors, whereas "High performance ,easy to generate node specific config" was stated as the key factor in picking Zookeeper.
