Apache
There's really no reason to ever use Mesos. We switched over to Kubernetes and it's been a breath of fresh air - better CD support, easy CLI for browsing logs, no mysterious dangling redeploys. If you're looking for a tool to manage a fleet of Docker containers on VMs, Kubernetes beats Mesos by a wide margin.

Percona
Production ready, robust DB solution built for Kubernetes envs, we was able, for the first time, to ship production db workloads inside k8s. Be sure to check differences with "traditional" MySQL and other clustering solutions. Also be sure to match it with proper k8s storage solutions.

Pros
Apache
  • Mesos may have many frameworks. If you have Mesos installed on your servers, you may use it for many kinds of tasks. Today we're running only web applications but the idea is to install a different framework for big data soon.
  • There is a good community growing around it.

Percona
  • Easy and fast deployment.
  • A reliable, fully automated, high-available db lifecycle management solution.
  • Exaustive documentation.
  • Production ready.

Cons
Apache
  • Unreliable deployments that would fail for no good reason. Sometimes our Docker container would be "restarting" forever because Mesos thought it didn't have enough resources to start the container.
  • Impossibly slow UI. Built in React under the hood with a lot of bloatware backed in, so loading the Mesos UI on a slow internet connection was painful.
  • No real logging solution - it would stream "console.log()" output to the UI, but searching for logs wasn't really possible without downloading a huge file.
  • No built-in support for redeploying containers from a CI. We had to create a service whose whole job was to expose an HTTP endpoint that restarted a container, and then made Circle CI ping the endpoint whenever we wanted to redeploy.

Percona
  • Some differences compared to "traditional" MySQL solution.
  • Had some hard times trying to use it combined with pre-existing techs like WordPress, Magento, etc.
  • The specific k8s environment features can have an impact on it, like the storage solutions offered by the cloud vendor.

No real support channel, the Mesos GitHub issues list was the only one we found and it wasn't particularly helpful.

Well documented, there was no need to contact support.

Kubernetes is really great and their community is growing really fast (Google influence). We evaluated it in the beginning and it would fit for our web applications workload. We decided to proceed with Mesos because it has more potential. You may use a different framework for different kinds of tasks on Mesos. There is a Kubernetes framework for Mesos, by the way.

Percona
For a long time we struggled finding a viable solution to migrate our existing db workloads inside Kubernetes. Before "operators era" proper db workloads required manual management, of course that easily raised administrative overhead. Then the future started to be brighter with the introduction of operators and the "official" Oracle's MySQL Operator, then Presslab's one, finally Percona's operator. Compared to other operators, the last one allowed us to ship production db workloads inside k8s.

Return on Investment
Apache
  • It's optimizing our resources.
  • It's improving our process. This argument is not just for Mesos, but we needed a tool like this to start changing and it works like a charm.
  • It's open source.

Percona
  • It allowed us to use k8s on our entire infrastructure.
  • Decreased administrative overhead around our db services.
  • As it is an open source technology, it cut down our db pricings.
