dotmesh vs Marathon: What are the differences?
Developers describe dotmesh as "Capture, organize, and share application states using a git-like CLI". Dotmesh captures snapshots from stateful Docker and Kubernetes applications as ’datadots‘, and gives you the ability to label, store and share them as you would with version-controlled code. Dotmesh is an open–source primitive that can be accessed via CLI or API. On the other hand, Marathon is detailed as "Deploy and manage containers (including Docker) on top of Apache Mesos at scale". 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.
dotmesh and Marathon can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
dotmesh and Marathon are both open source tools. Marathon with 3.87K GitHub stars and 875 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than dotmesh with 472 GitHub stars and 17 GitHub forks.
