Alliance Coalesces Around Mesosphere Platform

George Leopold

The datacenter operating system movement continues to gather momentum with the announcement by Apache Mesos developer Mesosphere of a broad alliance backing the beta release of an all-encompassing platform for building and scaling enterprise applications.

The new platform, dubbed DC/OS, is based on Mesosphere’s datacenter operation system tool. The initial release of DC/OS announced on Tuesday (4/19) expands earlier capabilities to include running application containers at scale along with “single-click” installation of more than 20 services.

DC/OS is further touted as allowing users to deploy automated infrastructure to run applications and services that include Apache Cassandra, Kafka and Spark. The platform combines the Mesos distributed systems kernel with Mesosphere’s Marathon container management tool.
