Our community is in the midst of a revolution. Mesos is no longer an edge technology, only for the Twitters and Airbnbs of the world; it's going mainstream and we are at its center. There is more activity on the Apache mailing lists, more commits in the code, more frameworks being developed, more developers building tools around Mesos—and, perhaps most excitingly, there are more companies deploying Mesos into production.
All of this activity makes it harder to keep up!
The Mesosphere team wants to help you keep up with all of the community activity by curating a concise semi-regular update, of which this is the first. We are looking to share the most interesting and important activities in the Mesos community.
Here are some recent highlights:
Venture capital icon Vinod Khosla
gave a call-out to Mesos in his 2014 Open Networking Summit keynote, where he waxed about the need for a datacenter OS. The Mesos portion begins at 24:07 in the ONS2014 Keynote YouTube video
Community member Tomas Barton
gave an introductory talk on Mesos at the InstallFest
in Prague. In his 59-slide talk, he covered everything from workload balancing to Mesos fault tolerance. View his presentation on SlideShare: Introduction to Apache Mesos
You can now download Mesos 0.18.0-RC4 (release candidate 4). The primary features of the 0.18.0 release
are changes that make it easier to insert pluggable container technologies, like Docker. This release foreshadows some pretty interesting Docker integrations with Mesos.
