What is Torus?
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.
Torus is a tool in the Container Tools category of a tech stack.
Torus is an open source tool with 1.8K GitHub stars and 171 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Torus's open source repository on GitHub

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.
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 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.
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.
Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
