Mesosphere DC/OS Now Open Source!

By  Felix Hupfeld  on  

Containers promise to be the next big thing for enterprise infrastructure. Apache Mesos is probably the most ambitious project in this area: it not only tries to solve the problem of scheduling containers on a cluster of machines, but aims to do so in a fully fault-tolerant, scalable and modular way. With Mesosphere DC/OS there […] READ MORE
