I have used Mesosphere for orchestrating Docker Container workloads. The main feature that mesosphere provides is cloud agnostic capabilities and it can be used across multiple cloud providers or within a hybrid scenario where you have a fusion between your own data centers and the cloud. Mesosphere as a product is being used by my team for managing and provisioning Docker Container workloads.
  • Cloud Agnostic
  • Simple to Use
  • Simplistic UI
  • Easy to Operate and Scale
  • 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.
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.

I personally straddle the line between dev-ops and development, and I think mesosphere and friends adds value to both of those roles. From the dev-ops perspective using a mesosphere foundation allows for applications to be treated in a uniform way, and deployed in an efficient manner across a cluster. It's also easy to scale out. From a development perspective it puts a certain amount of dev-ops power in my hands which I would otherwise have to rely on dev-ops to do (e.g. install a particular version of node.js on these servers). It's a win-win all around. There are some issues in terms of the dev org, deploying things that the dev-ops org isn't fully up to snuff on support, so this aspect is the main challenge in my mind around the docker/scheduler paradigm. What mesosphere brings to the table is a packaged deployment solution for mesosphere and "frameworks" that facilitate deployment of various applications onto the mesosphere grid. Deploying mesosphere and various applications on top of it can be non trivial, so Mesosphere datacenter operating system (DCOS) can help a great deal with that.
  • 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
  • There isn't any specific support for upgrading (DCOS) when running in AWS. You basically have to create a new vpc and figure out how to get all your Marathon jobs from the old instance to the new instance. I think some kind of a backup/restore operation against Marathon could be helpful there.
  • Occasionally, I will experience silent failures when deploying something onto Marathon. I think an easier way to track down failures would be helpful.
  • There are some features that are reserved for the licensed enterprise offering, but in some cases, I think the feature (e.g. security) is fundamental, and it may lead to the tech being avoided because it doesn't have enough momentum to get the customer hooked. I would like to see more features provided with the open-source version and reserve licensing for support.
I think right now Mesosphere is newer to Windows environments and has some challenges with stepping in to big data scenarios where YARN is currently being used.

About D2iQ Mesosphere

D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere) still supports the Mesosphere solution, which is designed for operations at a very large scale. It's powered by DC/OS, a production-proven cloud native platform that runs containers and data services on the same infrastructure.

D2iQ rebranded to reflect their change and broadening of focus towards Kubernetes but other services such as Cassandra, Kafka, and Spark. D2iQ also now offers IT professional services in tandem with its products.
