Today’s applications are distributed systems – they’ve outgrown single servers, and “scale-out” architectures have become the norm. But building new distributed systems, especially those that need to explicitly manage data, is still brittle and difficult, especially in failure and maintenance scenarios.
In this talk, Benjamin Hindman (one of the original creators of the Apache Mesos project) will discuss Apache Mesos and how it can be used to more easily build and run distributed systems. In particular, he’ll focus on the Mesos API for building a distributed system, and discuss how the primitives provided by Mesos can make it easier to build new stateful services and frameworks such as key value stores, message queues, message brokers, and distributed file systems.
Ben’s talk is now available on the Chariot Solutions site.
