The Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System will simplify the development and management of server applications dramatically. To run the applications, packaged in containers, distributed in the cluster.
The trend toward containers as a new packet format for Linux servers is growing momentum: Mesospheres something full-bodied as Data Center Operating System (DCOS) designated software for operating the clusters combined the cluster management software Apache Mesos to the distributed init system marathon Services that are packaged in Linux or Docker containers. Add to that developed by Airbnb cron replacement Chronos for clusters and the Distributed File System Hadoop HDFS file system and management tools Mesosphere.
Cluster services such as real-time analysis framework Apache Spark, the NoSQL database Apache Cassandra, the messaging system Apache Kafka, the Big Data environment, Apache Hadoop and the container management tool Google Kubernetes are easily convertible Mesosphere DCOS can be used. From repositories that can be both publicly and internally, to other services in Linux or Docker containers should be installed at your fingertips.
A private SDK will allow developers to distributed applications to develop as if they are running on a server. Mesosphere DCOS to thereby all aspects of the cluster operation of the distribution of resources to take care of handling hardware failures.
Mesosphere DCOS runs on current versions of Linux, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu and CoreOS, in various public clouds (Amazon AWS, Google Compute Engine, Digital Ocean, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, VMware v Cloud Air) and on private VMWare and OpenStack clouds. Mesosphere cluster can contain thousands of machines. The company has just completed a series B financing more than 36 million US dollars.
Linux Containers, based on Mesosphere and similar approaches such as Core OS and Red Hat Atomic, grab an application with the required runtime environment in an image. Such containers provide a better application isolation than the traditional multi-process model of classical operating systems, however, require much less effort than traditional virtual machines on hypervisors start a complete virtualized operating system. has ushered the container trend Docker, software for building, for the distribution and management of containers.(ODI)
