What is the difference between UNet and Photon?

I want to add multiplayer to my game and after a few researches I came across UNet and Photon. I have trouble understanding the differences between the two :

  • Are both of them developped by the Unity team ?
  • When should I use one instead of the other ?
  • Are they the only way to implement multiplayer in a game ?
