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.

Kubernetes

Kubernetes is ideally when container orchestration is required, allowing to scale an application up or down depending on the workload of the application/service.Portability of the Helm chart definition makes it possible to change the hosting platform easily without rewriting the whole application stack or depending on another configuration management tool (e.g. Ansible).

Pros

D2iQ Mesosphere

  • Deploying mesosphere and friends (e.g. marathon)
  • Deploying applications (e.g. Cassandra, Jenkins, Spark) on to mesosphere
  • Providing value add components such as velocity, and marathon-lb

Kubernetes

  • Makes sure that the workload remains UP & running by maintaining the desired state.
  • Gives a lot of flexibility in choosing the networking, storage, monitoring, etc solutions of your choice.
  • The biggest advantage is to upgrade the application with a new version without any downtime.
  • Portability of the code is possible up to a great extent.

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.

Kubernetes

  • We had several problems with its NFS, which is responsible for syncing the code across the cluster
  • On several instances the pods go into UNKNOWN state in which case restarting the entire node is the only solution
  • As a user of the existing setup given to me, I wasn't able to allocate only some CPU cores on a single host. It was either all or zero making cluster utilization sub-optimal

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.

Kubernetes

Most of the required features for any orchestration tool or framework, which is provided by Kubernetes. After understanding all modules and features of the K8S, it is the best fit for us as compared with others out there.

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.

Kubernetes

  • Because of microservices, Kubernetes makes it easy to find the cost of each application easily.
  • Like every new technology, initially, it took more resources to educate ourselves but over a period of time, I believe it's going to be worth it.
