Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

“etcd is a distributed key value store that provides a reliable way to store data across a cluster of machines.” etcd etcd provides a way to store data across a distributed cluster of machines and make sure the data is synchronized across all machines. You can find more information, as well as the etcd source code, in the etcd GitHub repository etcd

They have an open issue for it and looks like no blockers, and a PR bumping the otel version, so it looks like it's moving.
Deploy a high available etcd cluster using docker
2 projects | dev.to | 8 Oct 2021
etcd is a strongly consistent, distributed key-value store that provides a reliable way to store data that needs to be accessed by a distributed system or cluster of machines. It gracefully handles leader elections during network partitions and can tolerate machine failure, even in the leader node.
What exactly is the stacked etcd's role and is it a separate entity? is it stored on 3 diff drives?

Kubernetes at Home with K3s

That's a false statement as far as the technical aspects are concerned (Swarm is still usable and supported), but is a true statement when you look at the social aspects (Kubernetes won the container wars and now even Nomad is uncommon to run into).
Right now the company i'm in uses Swarm in a lot of places due to its simplicity (Compose file support) and low resource usage - Swarm hits the sweet spot when it comes to getting started with container orchestration and doing so without needing multiple people to wrangle the technical complexity of Kubernetes, or large VMs to deal with its resource usage, at least in on prem environments.
In combination with Portainer (https://www.portainer.io/) it's perhaps one of the best ways to get things done, when you expect everything to just work and aren't doing something too advanced (think along the lines of 10 servers, rather than 100, which is probably most of the deployments out there).
I actually wrote about some of its advantages in my blog post, "Docker Swarm over Kubernetes": https://blog.kronis.dev/articles/docker-swarm-over-kubernete...
That said, if there are any good options to replace Swarm, it has to either be Hashicorp Nomad (https://www.nomadproject.io/) which is a really nice platform, especially when coupled with Consul (https://www.consul.io/), as long as you can get past the weirdness of HCL. Alternatively, it has to be K3s (https://k3s.io/), which gives you Kubernetes without the insane bloat and hardware usage.
I actually benchmarked K3s against Docker Swarm in similar app deployments: 1 leader server, 2 follower servers, running a Ruby on Rails app and an ingress, while they're under load testing by K6 (https://k6.io/). I was attempting to see whether COVID contract tracking with GPS would be viable as far as the system load goes in languages with high abstraction level, here's more info about that: https://blog.kronis.dev/articles/covid-19-contact-tracing-wi...
Honestly, the results were pretty close - on the follower servers, the overhead of the orchestrator agents were a few percent (K3s being heavier, but a few dozen MB here or there not being too relevant), whereas the bigger differences were in the leader components, where K3s was heavier almost by a factor of two, which isn't too much when you consider how lightweight Swarm is (there was a difference of a few hundred MB) and the CPU usage was reasonably close in both of the cases as well. Sadly, the text of the paper is in Latvian, so it's probably of no use to anyone, but i advise you to do your own benchmarks! Being a student, i couldn't afford many servers then, so it's probably a good idea to benchmark those with more servers.
Of note, on those VPSes (4 GB of RAM, single core), the full Kubernetes wouldn't even start, whereas at work, trying to get the resources for also running Rancher on top of a "full" Kubernetes cluster (e.g. RKE) can also take needlessly long due to the backlash from ops. Also, personally i find the Compose syntax to be far easier to deal with, rather than the amalgamation that Kubernetes uses, Helm probably shouldn't even be a thing if the deployment descriptors weren't so bloated. Just look at this: https://docs.docker.com/compose/compose-file/compose-file-v3...
- Docker Swarm is pretty good when you're starting out with containers and is reasonably stable and easy to use

Datadog Reveals Hidden AWS Performance Problems

At Lob, we currently use Convox as our deployment platform, a “roll your own Platform-as-a-Service” that you can install to handle container orchestration on AWS’s ECS (Elastic Container Service). Convox is showing its age and this year we began the process of replacing Convox with HashiCorp’s Nomad, a flexible workload orchestrator to deploy and manage our containers on AWS.
