Mesosphere Joins Dell EMC’s Reseller Program to Provide Open, Scalable Platform for Hybrid Cloud

For more than five years, DC/OS has enabled some of the largest, most sophisticated enterprises in the world to achieve unparalleled levels of efficiency, reliability, and scalability from their IT infrastructure. But now it is time to pass the torch to a new generation of technology: the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP). Why? Kubernetes has now achieved a level of capability that only DC/OS could formerly provide and is now evolving and improving far faster (as is true of its supporting ecosystem). That’s why we have chosen to sunset DC/OS, with an end-of-life date of October 31, 2021. With DKP, our customers get the same benefits provided by DC/OS and more, as well as access to the most impressive pace of innovation the technology world has ever seen. This was not an easy decision to make, but we are dedicated to enabling our customers to accelerate their digital transformations, so they can increase the velocity and responsiveness of their organizations to an ever-more challenging future. And the best way to do that right now is with DKP.

Today we are excited to build on our existing strategic relationship with Dell EMC by becoming part of Dell EMC's formal reseller program. This agreement allows joint customers to purchase Mesosphere DC/OS licenses, services and training directly from Dell EMC and its network of global reseller partners. 


By collaborating with Mesosphere, Dell EMC customers can now orchestrate containerized applications and full suite of big data services for the enterprise between their on-premise and public cloud implementations, thus maximizing efficiencies, reducing cost and optimizing compute resources.


This means Dell EMC customers will now get access to easy one-click deployment and scaling of popular tools like Kubernetes, Apache Spark, Apache Cassandra, Elasticsearch, HDFS, Apache Kafka, Tensorflow, and more.


Powerful Collaboration

Mesosphere and Dell EMC have a history of collaborating on behalf of joint customers. Earlier this year, we delivered a reference architecture for deployment of DC/OS across Dell EMC compute and storage infrastructure and integrated REX-Ray, an open source container storage orchestration engine developed by {code} — Dell Technologies' open source organization — to manage storage from multiple platforms, in DC/OS.


This expanded partnership gives enterprises a unique hybrid cloud solution; allowing them to maintain control of valuable proprietary applications and data while still unlocking the full TCO potential of digital transformation.



Mesosphere DC/OS and related services are available now through Dell EMC and worldwide channel partners. Interested customers can contact either company for more details, or begin the journey to Mesosphere DC/OS today.


Mesosphere DC/OS

Mesosphere DC/OS, built on Apache Mesos, provides a unified platform for a wide range of workloads from Docker container orchestration to big data (i.e SMACK stack) and machine learning. DC/OS technology has been production-proven at scale for over six years, reducing infrastructure costs while maintaining security and isolation. 


DC/OS simplifies deployment, enables application portability, and automates the operations of data services. Mesosphere DC/OS helps businesses accelerate time to market, ensure resilient applications, and save on cloud and infrastructure costs.
