Thanos vs Zabbix: What are the differences?
Developers describe Thanos as "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. On the other hand, Zabbix is detailed as "Track, record, alert and visualize performance and availability of IT resources". Zabbix is a mature and effortless enterprise-class open source monitoring solution for network monitoring and application monitoring of millions of metrics.
Thanos and Zabbix can be primarily classified as "Monitoring" tools.
Thanos and Zabbix are both open source tools. It seems that Thanos with 3.83K GitHub stars and 429 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Zabbix with 514 GitHub stars and 187 GitHub forks.
