Apache Aurora vs DC/OS: What are the differences?

Apache Aurora: An Apcahe Mesos framework for scheduling jobs, originally developed by Twitter. Apache Aurora is a service scheduler that runs on top of Mesos, enabling you to run long-running services that take advantage of Mesos' scalability, fault-tolerance, and resource isolation; DC/OS: The Datacenter Operating System. The easiest way to run microservices, big data, and containers in production. Unlike traditional operating systems, DC/OS spans multiple machines within a network, aggregating their resources to maximize utilization by distributed applications.

Apache Aurora and DC/OS can be categorized as "Cluster Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apache Aurora are:

  • Deployment and scheduling of jobs
  • The abstraction a “job” to bundle and manage Mesos tasks
  • A rich DSL to define services

On the other hand, DC/OS provides the following key features:

  • High Resource Utilization
  • Mixed Workload Colocation
  • Container Orchestration

Apache Aurora and DC/OS are both open source tools. DC/OS with 2.16K GitHub stars and 451 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Apache Aurora with 612 GitHub stars and 231 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, DC/OS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 19 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Apache Aurora, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

        Kubernetes
        Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
        Marathon
        Marathon is an Apache Mesos framework for container orchestration. Marathon provides a REST API for starting, stopping, and scaling applications. Marathon is written in Scala and can run in highly-available mode by running multiple copies. The state of running tasks gets stored in the Mesos state abstraction.
        Apache Mesos
        Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that simplifies the complexity of running applications on a shared pool of servers.
        Nomad
        Nomad is a cluster manager, designed for both long lived services and short lived batch processing workloads. Developers use a declarative job specification to submit work, and Nomad ensures constraints are satisfied and resource utilization is optimized by efficient task packing. Nomad supports all major operating systems and virtualized, containerized, or standalone applications.
        Mesosphere
        Mesosphere offers a layer of software that organizes your machines, VMs, and cloud instances and lets applications draw from a single pool of intelligently- and dynamically-allocated resources, increasing efficiency and reducing operational complexity.
