Operating at web scale requires two key technologies: containerization and cluster scheduling. In this webcast, Ken Sipe, Cloud Systems Architect at Mesosphere, will present on how companies of all sizes can scale like Google and Twitter with open source tools like Apache Mesos that lets you run containers at large scale across an entire datacenter or cloud. Apache Mesos is in production use at companies like Twitter, Netflix and Airbnb where it is used to deliver web-scale, fault-tolerant, easy to deploy applications and services. In today's world where applications and data no longer fit on single machines, Mesos is the distributed systems kernel that stitches together all of the datacenter resources (machines or VM instances) into a single pool of resources from which all applications can draw. It is highly-available, fault-tolerant and increases resource utilization dramatically. Mesos provides the primitives and abstractions that allows programmers and operators to build and maintain highly complex distributed systems at scale.
