We are excited to introduce Mesosphere to the DC technology ecosystem. The Mesosphere datacenter operating system helps you organize the machines in your datacenter as if they are one big computer. Save time, money and deliver technology solutions for your mission faster.
Mesosphere provides a new kind of operating system. The DCOS (Datacenter Operating System) spans all the servers in a physical or cloud-based datacenter, and run on top of any Linux distribution. Enterprises can deploy any Linux application with ease, or install datacenter services with one command, including Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra and Kubernetes. And this is all done via very easy to use interfaces.
From their website:
The Mesosphere DCOS is a new kind of operating system that spans all of the machines in the datacenter or cloud. It supports today’s developers who are building a new class of applications. These applications no longer fit on a single server, but instead run across a fleet of servers in a datacenter.
The Mesosphere DCOS includes a distributed systems kernel with enterprise-grade security, based on Apache Mesos, and a set of core system services, including an init system (Marathon), cron (Chronos), service discovery (DNS), storage (HDFS), and others.
The Mesosphere DCOS runs containerized workloads at scale, managing resource isolation (including memory, processor, and network) and optimizing resource utilization. It is highly adaptable, employing plug-ins for native Linux containers, Docker containers, and other emerging container systems. Automating standard operations, the Mesosphere DCOS is highly-elastic, highly-available and fault-tolerant.
