Mesos

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.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

OpenShift is well suited if you want to use docker and kubernetes but you want to hide the complexity of these two technologies. It gives a developer much more freedom in terms of code deployment, build process and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure for each application.

Pros

Mesos

  • 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.

Cons

Mesos

  • 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.

  • Steep learning curve
  • Lack of a trial version

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

I think response time for IBM Cloud support should be improved.

Alternatives Considered

Mesos

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.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

We tested Red Hat OpenShift on premise but we decided to go for a public cloud to reduce our infrastructure and pay for what we use.

Return on Investment

Mesos

  • 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.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

  • Improved the release of new versions of applications.
  • Possibility to quickly change the processing capacity.
