Mesosphere featured on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Cover show

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.

Last week, we were fortunate enough to make a guest appearance on Channel 9's Microsoft developer network channel, the Azure Cloud Cover show. Chris Risner was the host and Ben Hindman was the guest speaker. Ben guided us through an overview of how companies of all sizes can scale their Docker or other container deployments with Marathon and Mesosphere DCOS on Azure, running containers at scale across an entire datacenter or cloud.
Ben Hindman is one of the creators of Apache Mesos, a distributed systems kernel born out of UC Berkeley's AMPLab that allows developers to program against the datacenter like it's a single computer. Mesos abstracts CPU, memory, storage and other compute resources away from servers and cloud instances, and creates a simpler and more scalable approach to resource management and scheduling across entire datacenter and cloud environments. For years, Twitter has run its critical infrastructure on top of Mesos, along with Apple's Siri, Hubspot, Airbnb, PayPal, Netflix, eBay and more.
Mesosphere is dedicated to helping enterprises unlock the next generation of data center scale, efficiency, and automation with Apache Mesos. Its mission is to make the tricky task of building and running distributed systems as easy as building or running an app on your smartphone. To learn more, visit
Watch the show and see how you can orchestrate your container deployment with Marathon and the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System on Azure. Sign up here for the DCOS on Azure community edition.
