Apache Mesos vs OpenStack: What are the differences?

What is Apache Mesos? 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.

What is OpenStack? Open source software for building private and public clouds. 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.

Apache Mesos and OpenStack are primarily classified as "Cluster Management" and "Open Source Cloud" tools respectively.

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, OpenStack provides the following key features:

  • Compute
  • Storage
  • Networking

"Easy scaling" is the top reason why over 19 developers like Apache Mesos, while over 35 developers mention "Private cloud" as the leading cause for choosing OpenStack.

According to the StackShare community, OpenStack has a broader approval, being mentioned in 66 company stacks & 50 developers stacks; compared to Apache Mesos, which is listed in 61 company stacks and 19 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Apache Mesos and OpenStack?
    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.
    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 β€” from legacy to what comes next β€” 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.
