Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

We've continued to have positive experiences deploying the Apache Mesos platform to manage cluster resources for highly distributed systems. Mesos abstracts out underlying computing resources such as CPU and storage, aiming to provide efficient utilization while maintaining isolation. Mesos includes Chronos for distributed and fault-tolerant execution of scheduled jobs, and Marathon for orchestrating long-running processes in containers.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Mesos is a platform that abstracts out underlying computing resources to make it easier to build massively scalable distributed systems. It can be used to provide a scheduling layer for Docker, or to act as an abstraction layer to things like AWS. Twitter has used it to great effect to help it scale its infrastructure. Tools built on top of Mesos are starting to appear, such as Chronos, which is a distributed, fault-tolerant cron replacement. Prominent success stories are appearing, such as Apple's Siri rearchitecting to use Mesos.
