In this chapter, we introduced Mesos, dived deep into its architecture, and discussed some important topics, such as frameworks, resource allocation, and resource isolation. We also discussed the two-level scheduling approach that Mesos employs and provided a detailed overview of its API. The HubSpot case study at the end was to show how it is used in production and that it is ready for prime time. The objective was to explain what Mesos is and why it is required and provide a high-level overview of how it works.
In the next chapter, we will deep dive into its important features and understand how it contributes to scaling, efficiency, high availability, and extendibility.
