When running a web application or analytics framework on more than single server, you're effectively running a distributed system. For operators, distributed systems pose issues when dealing with machine failures and deploying to multiple machines. And for application developers, it often means having to rewrite fault-tolerant features into multiple apps. As a result, the cloud can be a daunting environment.
Two projects: Apache Mesos and Apache Aurora provide software primitives that remove some of the complexity of managing and writing distributed system. As foundational tech to running in the cloud, we sometimes refer to them as an operating system for the datacenter. Instead of running apps on a single server, you can think of your Mesos+Aurora cluster as one giant computer that runs apps across many machines.
In this presentation, I'll cover:
Participants will come away with an understanding of how Mesos functions, background on the internals of the project and its architecture, an understanding of the use case it provides Twitter and other companies, and how they may begin to participate and engage in the community.
