[DevOps Checklist] ZooKeeper delight

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.

Welcome to a new format called DevOps Checklist where Mesosphere engineers provide useful tips and tricks around Apache Mesos, Marathon, Chronos, Kubernetes, Docker and related technologies in the realm of the DCOS, the Datacenter Operating System. I will try to interview an engineer every week and will ask about their pet peeves, their experiences with ecosystem components and best practices with running stuff at scale. You can shape the whole thing by providing feedback (see also bottom of this post). But now, without further ado …


In this first episode, we start with field engineer Brenden Matthews who joined us from Airbnb and who shares his ZooKeeper experiences with us as well as he provides some good practices around its usage:
