Apache Mesos vs Mesosphere: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache Mesos 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. On the other hand, Mesosphere is detailed as "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 Mesos and Mesosphere can be categorized as "Cluster Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apache Mesos are:

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

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.

"Easy scaling" is the top reason why over 19 developers like Apache Mesos, while over 5 developers mention "Devops" as the leading cause for choosing Mesosphere.

Airbnb, Netflix, and Twitter are some of the popular companies that use Apache Mesos, whereas Mesosphere is used by Keen, GoGuardian, and Astronomer. Apache Mesos has a broader approval, being mentioned in 61 company stacks & 19 developers stacks; compared to Mesosphere, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Apache Mesos and Mesosphere?
    OpenStack
    OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.
    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.
    Docker
    The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
    Yarn
    Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.
    Docker Swarm
    Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
