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

  1. Kubernetes is very easy to get started and to set up
  2. It has various deployment options, file systems and service types making it suitable for several use cases besides Machine Learning
  3. Extends the functionality of Docker's rich functionality making it a deadly combination
  4. The rough edges in file system, utilization and resource management should be fixed to be adopted as a standard in a company
  5. Its extremely vast Python library makes it easy to build services on top of kubernetes. However the API is quite complex and documentation is quite poor

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

  • Cost-effectiveness, Kubernetes is free and open source.
  • Scalability, Kubernetes works regardless of how many pods it's managing; be it ten or a thousand.
  • Low overhead, Kubernetes adds very little performance cost per developer per machine. The benefits of having a managed system vastly outweigh the minor performance cost.
  • Large market share, Kubernetes is one of the top container orchestration tools used by developers today. This has been immensely helpful when finding new talent who are familiar with Kubernetes.

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

  • Speed of error detection - many times, in attempting to fix a problem, I found that kubernetes just had a delay in handling an automated fix. By changing the system, I was playing a cat and mouse game with kubernetes' attempts to auto-fix the error.
  • Sensible logging - many of the logs are difficult to decipher and too verbose to be useful.
  • The learning curve is high - it took many months of working with Google, in which both I and Google Support Engineers learned a lot about how Kubernetes works. The learning curve is not for people looking for quick and easy out of the box.

Documentation for Kubernetes is better than usual, and there are a variety of paid support offerings available from a variety of consultant shops. Explicit examples for specific features are sometimes hard to come by due to the wide array of features available, and the documentation can be overwhelming. Further, without any first-party paid offering, it's sometimes hard to know who to reach out to for support.

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

Docker Swarm is not as advanced as Kubernetes and there are no out of the box solutions for auto scaling and deployment strategies. Docker swarm doesnot have much experience with production deployments at scale. Swarm has a smaller community, and less frequent releases as compared to the very big Kubernetes Community and its rapid releases.

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

  • We switched from Chef, so we got a HUGE amount of ROI by switching our microservices over to Kubernetes 8. A lot less code, a lot easier to test, and immutable images means we have just one build and that artifact goes through all the environments.
  • Automated deploys are SUPER easy with Kubernetes 8. We just have simple scripts listening on a GitHub repo for changes that applies/creates all the Kubernetes 8 pieces we need. Everyone has the power to deploy to any of the clusters through code and code reviews.
  • Shrunk our devops need dramatically, everything just works.
