Package repositories for all your distros

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.

Now you can install the entire Mesosphere stack on any machine in your datacenter with a few simple commands.


Today we've announced our official package repositories. These package repositories connect directly to the native package management tools of your favorite Linux distribution — namely, apt-get and yum — to install Mesos on top of the most common Linux distributions (RedHat, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Debian).


Ubuntu and Debian


[highlight code='bash']


# Setup


sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv DF7D54CBE56151BF


DISTRO=$(lsb_release -is | tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]')


CODENAME=$(lsb_release -cs)


# Add the repository


echo "deb${DISTRO} ${CODENAME} main" | 


  sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mesosphere.list
