Mesos and the Architecture of the New Datacenter - Thomas Rampelberg, Mesosphere
Apache Mesos has the ability to run on every private and cloud instance, anywhere. In this talk, Thomas Rampelberg (Datacenter Developer at Mesosphere) will trace Mesos from its origins as a “fine-grained resource manager” at UC Berkeley to becoming a full-fledged distributed kernel for resource management across the datacenter and cloud. He will explain the momentum behind the “single computer” abstraction that has put Mesos at the center of one of the most exciting architecture shifts in recent information technology history. Rampelberg will explain the role of Mesos in unifying other frameworks, share examples of how Mesos is empowering the new class of “datacenter developers” to program directly against datacenter resources, and draw correlations to how the Linux kernel revolutionized the server industry.

Mesos Networking - Christos Kozyrakis, Mesosphere and Spike Curtis, Project Calico
Because Mesos abstracts the physical location of containers, network connectivity, service discovery, and network security can be quite challenging. In this talk, we will review the networking features necessary to make Mesos practical in large scale, multi-tenant clusters. Specifically, we will describe how to assign a separate IP address per container, how to isolate containers on demand with a distributed firewall, and how to automate service discovery by integrating Mesos with DNS. We will demonstrate the first implementation of these features that uses Project Calico, a pure layer-3 approach to virtual networking for scalable datacenter.

Save Millions by Efficient Resource Utilization Through Mesos - Smarth Madan, PayPal
When it comes to hardware, most companies underutilize it; sometimes letting it lying idle for days without activity. When we started the project to build a staging environment for PayPal, we had the opportunity to design an environment, which is dynamic, on demand, and highly available. Through Mesos and the Aurora scheduler, we are able to deploy 200+ VMs simultaneously and create a mini PayPal environment for developers to connect from their VMs, desktops or mobile devices. This presentation will cover how we are reducing operational cost of hardware and building a scalable environment, which is improving the efficiency for PayPal developers.

Workshop: A Field Guide to Mesos Frameworks - Adam Bordelon, Mesosphere; Elizabeth Lingg, Mesosphere; Niklas Nielsen, Mesosphere
Frameworks are the lifeblood of Mesos, since they provide the distributed applications and services that run on top of Mesos. Many users are perfectly content using the various frameworks already built for Mesos, but others may need support for a new application or require custom behavior that is not already available. In this workshop, experts from Mesosphere will explain why, when, and how you should build your own framework. In addition to the basics of resource offers and status updates, they will dive into “enterprise-grade” requirements like high availability, authentication, advanced scheduling, and persistent state. Whether you are building your own custom framework or just getting to know the existing Mesos frameworks, this workshop will give you the tools and knowledge you need.
