In August 2016, we conducted a survey to better understand how Apache Mesos is used and how to make it better. The survey - which collected nearly 500 responses from Mesos users across the globe - highlights the strong growth of Mesos and provides invaluable insights into how Mesos is enabling the adoption of containers and big data services.
The results show:
- The Mesos community is growing fast, as is the size of users’ Mesos deployments once they see what it can do.
- Mesos is driving the adoption of modern applications – container orchestration and big data services are key drivers of Mesos use.
- Users see a tremendous amount of value in the features that DC/OS provides on top of Mesos, and it shows in the data: the vast majority of new Mesos users use DC/OS to get started.
