Default BumbleBee and Ironhide

I've been using Linux for most of my time, but I've recently bought a laptop with switchable graphics, the intel and nvdia can switch to save power.

I have been googling a few things and it came up with either bumblebee or ironhide software that is supposedly a big substitute for the nvdia drivers since nvidia is not supporting the linux drivers.

So my query is whats the difference between bumblebee and ironhide? I honestly have no flippin idea what makes them different and they seem to do the same thing from my understanding. If there are distinct differences let me know and would also like to know which to get.
