Apache Aurora vs Mesosphere: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Mesosphere? Combine your datacenter servers and cloud instances into one shared pool. 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.

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

  • Built on top of open source technology
  • Grow to tens of thousands of nodes effortlessly while dynamically allocating resources with ease.
  • Mesosphere keeps your apps running by rebalancing resources and restarting failed tasks automatically.

Apache Aurora is an open source tool with 615 GitHub stars and 231 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache Aurora's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Mesosphere has a broader approval, being mentioned in 12 company stacks & 8 developers stacks; compared to Apache Aurora, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Apache Aurora and Mesosphere?
    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.
    DC/OS
    Unlike traditional operating systems, DC/OS spans multiple machines within a network, aggregating their resources to maximize utilization by distributed applications.
