DC/OS vs YARN Hadoop: What are the differences?
Developers describe DC/OS as "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. On the other hand, YARN Hadoop is detailed as "*Resource management and job scheduling technology *". Its fundamental idea is to split up the functionalities of resource management and job scheduling/monitoring into separate daemons. The idea is to have a global ResourceManager (RM) and per-application ApplicationMaster (AM).
DC/OS and YARN Hadoop can be primarily classified as "Cluster Management" tools.
DC/OS is an open source tool with 2.17K GitHub stars and 458 GitHub forks. Here's a link to DC/OS's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, DC/OS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 19 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to YARN Hadoop, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
