D2iQ Mesosphere

Mesosphere is well suited for orchestrating workloads. It supports Docker as a container as well as support others. It is highly suitable for running resilient and auto recovering big data/application containers. Mesosphere has proven time and again to be production ready at a massive scale. It supports native single button/API call scale up and scale down and supports various deployment patterns like Blue-Green and others.

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

Currently use for traffic management for IOT edge devices and their sensor data flows. IoT generates lots of data and this data needs to processed at the edge devices before sending the processed result to cloud. Hence there is always ingress and egress data traffic in and out of the IoT edge devices which needs traffic management

Cons

D2iQ Mesosphere

  • Setting up is a bit of a hassle, especially ZooKeeper state management and mesos and marathon quorum.
  • Occasionally, I observed some failures when deploying something onto Marathon. Logging or detailed error reporting can help.
  • Stale containers and inconsistent states resultant of the cluster failure are hard to solve and need a complete system restart to get it back to normal state.

  • Still missing functionalities for a full usage as traffic director.

IBM has good track record, but we haven't used their support after getting setup initially. However, the training made available by them during our introductory experience was good, and provided us with a lot of useful background knowledge along with guidance on how to address the specific use cases we were looking for.

We did not use IBM professional services to implement istio. Our experience was such that getting it setup quickly did not require assistance. We did however, make use of IBM's training opportunities at kube con 2019, which included a walkthrough setup of istio on IBM Cloud. This provided us with a strong base on which to build.

Alternatives Considered

D2iQ Mesosphere

I happen to like mesosphere because it integrates well with a Jenkins based workflow, Deis is a little more Heroku like and it's not clear how to fit that model into a continuous-integration process. Kubernetes has also been criticized for being complicated.

Return on Investment

D2iQ Mesosphere

  • I see mesosphere as having a positive impact overall on the industry trending Docker and containers in general.
  • Seeing how mesosphere helps and simplifies things for the developer and ops, it is definitely a game changer.
  • Native support of on demand scaling up and down as per the need is one of the best features.
