Mesos Gets Pluggable: Introducing Mesos Modules - Kapil Arya, Mesosphere & Niklas Nielsen, Mesosphere

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the most exciting new innovations is a simple, pluggable approach to building customizations for Mesos. This makes it as easy to extend or customize Mesos as it is to install plug-ins into your web browser. In this talk, (Niklas Nielsen and Kapil Arya, Distributed Systems Engineers at Mesosphere) will provide a technical introduction to Mesos Modules - the new way to customize Mesos without having to recompile / relink for each specific use case. They will demonstrate how to build and use Mesos Modules, including an example of how to write an allocator module for custom scheduling policies across a cluster. The presenters will also explain how Mesos Modules will help grow the ecosystem of developers building new features for Mesos. Customization will be one of strongest and most flexible attributes of the Mesos distributed systems kernel!
