D2iQ has become a valuable tool for many users, offering a range of use cases that have been praised by its customers. One of the key benefits of D2iQ is its cloud-agnostic nature, allowing users to run their clusters on any cloud provider effortlessly. This flexibility has freed up time for users to focus on their applications instead of managing infrastructure. Users have also found D2iQ to be incredibly helpful in managing clusters of on-premise servers running microservices style apps, providing insights into infrastructure utilization and real-time health monitoring.

In addition, D2iQ has proven to be an essential tool in reducing development time and increasing productivity. With D2iQ's automation capabilities, users have experienced maximum uptime without the need for human intervention. Container management and deployments to test environments have also been made easier with D2iQ's seamless integration of app development and container delivery. The ability to pull all relevant information into one location has streamlined processes, making it simple for users to access everything they need with just a click.

The engaging and responsive community surrounding D2iQ, along with its extensive documentation, has also been highly valued by users. They have found the community support and resources to be instrumental in utilizing the full potential of D2iQ. Furthermore, D2iQ offers customization options, tools for monitoring services, and ready-to-use APIs. Users appreciate the flexibility this provides in tailoring the tool to their specific needs. The dashboard feature of D2iQ offers an overview of resource usage, stress levels, and running jobs, empowering users to analyze resource consumption and take appropriate actions.

Overall, D2iQ has proven itself as a versatile tool that addresses various user needs across different industries. From enabling cloud-agnostic deployments to increasing productivity through automation and customization options, the value it brings is evident in the experiences shared by its users.

Effortless Cluster Setup: Several users have praised the platform for its ability to easily spin up clusters using industry-standard tools within minutes. This has allowed them to have a centralized dashboard and logging capability for all their managed k8s clusters without any configuration, saving them valuable time and effort.

Seamless Integration with Existing Workflows: Reviewers appreciate that once installed, they can communicate with their clusters the same way they are used to, using kubectl. This seamless integration with existing workflows is a standout feature for many users, allowing for a smooth transition and minimizing disruption.

Efficient Resource Management: Many users find the support for several frameworks for scheduling different kinds of workloads and the 2-level scheduling system highly efficient in managing resources. They feel that this results in great efficiency and helps streamline their workload management processes.


  1. Documentation could be improved: Some users have expressed that D2iQ's documentation lacks clarity, particularly in the sections explaining how their platform works.
  2. Issues with CLI and UI: Several reviewers mentioned that the Command Line Interface is not very robust and the User Interface for the marathon framework can be buggy.
  3. Lack of built-in application stacks and difficulties with upgrades: Some users noted other options available with different features and highlighted the absence of built-in application stacks for frameworks like Flask, Django, Bottle, React, and Node. They also mentioned experiencing difficulties when upgrading the software while running it on AWS.

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 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.
Mesosphere vs. ECS
Mesosphere has a direct competition with companies using AWS Cloud, as the ECS product is one of the closest competitors to Mesosphere. Mesosphere has an edge with simplistic hosting and deep and easy integration with Jenkins Pipelines and native plugins support. ECS, on the other hand, does not have much integration with the continuous integration process and is somewhat complex to maintain and manage.

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.
  • I see mesosphere as having a positive impact overall. Having experienced Docker and mesosphere, I would not want to return to the traditional way of doing things.
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.
