DC/OS: Containers, Microservices and Stateful Big Data | D2iQ

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.

Enterprises today face the same challenges web companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter faced only a few years ago—engaging millions of users, processing lots and lots of data in real time, and rolling out new services quickly.


The successful patterns these early companies used define the modern enterprise application, which is composed of distributed microservices running in containers, and with stateful big data services built-in. This approach enables developers to ship code faster, and improves performance and maintainability. However, operating these applications requires a good bit of engineering and managing issues such as deployment complexity, high availability and resource utilization.
