The Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DC/OS) is a new kind of cloud native operating system intended to make the lives of both datacenter operators and application developers significantly easier. Powered by Apache Mesos and Marathon, the same open source projects used by Yelp’s PaaSTA, DC/OS provides a complete package of services which organizations can use to deploy their own in-house PaaS (Platform as a Service) with just a couple of commands.
We’ll show the technological underpinnings of DC/OS and how easy it is to install and run existing PaaS frameworks for DC/OS, including Kubernetes and Marathon. We’ll talk about common approaches to building PaaSTA-like automation for connecting GitHub repositories to production applications. Finally, we’ll preview some of the new and upcoming features of DC/OS that support everything from your own internal package repository to applications with persistent resources.
