Apache Aurora vs Apache Mesos: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache Aurora as "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. On the other hand, Apache Mesos is detailed as "Develop and run resource-efficient distributed systems". Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that simplifies the complexity of running applications on a shared pool of servers.

Apache Aurora and Apache Mesos 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, Apache Mesos provides the following key features:

  • Fault-tolerant replicated master using ZooKeeper
  • Scalability to 10,000s of nodes
  • Isolation between tasks with Linux Containers

Apache Aurora is an open source tool with 612 GitHub stars and 231 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache Aurora's open source repository on GitHub.

Netflix, ebay, and Twitter are some of the popular companies that use Apache Mesos, whereas Apache Aurora is used by Twitter, Chartbeat, and Oscar Health. Apache Mesos has a broader approval, being mentioned in 61 company stacks & 19 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.
      DC/OS
      Unlike traditional operating systems, DC/OS spans multiple machines within a network, aggregating their resources to maximize utilization by distributed applications.
      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.

      Bamboo + Marathon + Mesos (+ Docker) => awesome tool set to building PaaS.
