Mesosphere vs VMware vSphere: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mesosphere 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. On the other hand, VMware vSphere is detailed as "Free bare-metal hypervisor that virtualizes servers so you can consolidate your applications on less hardware". vSphere is the world’s leading server virtualization platform. Run fewer servers and reduce capital and operating costs using VMware vSphere to build a cloud computing infrastructure.

Mesosphere belongs to "Cluster Management" category of the tech stack, while VMware vSphere can be primarily classified under "Virtualization Platform".

Some of the features offered by Mesosphere are:

  • 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.

On the other hand, VMware vSphere provides the following key features:

  • Powerful Server Virtualization
  • Network Services
  • Efficient Storage

"Devops" is the primary reason why developers consider Mesosphere over the competitors, whereas "Strong host isolation" was stated as the key factor in picking VMware vSphere.

CircleCI, MIT, and Ansible are some of the popular companies that use VMware vSphere, whereas Mesosphere is used by Keen, GoGuardian, and Qordoba. VMware vSphere has a broader approval, being mentioned in 55 company stacks & 23 developers stacks; compared to Mesosphere, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Mesosphere and VMware vSphere?
      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.
      Rancher
      Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
      OpenShift
      OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications.
      CoreOS
      It is designed for security, consistency, and reliability. Instead of installing packages via yum or apt, it uses Linux containers to manage your services at a higher level of abstraction. A single service's code and all dependencies are packaged within a container that can be run on one or many machines.
      Apache Mesos
      Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that simplifies the complexity of running applications on a shared pool of servers.

      We use VMWare vSphere to allow us to virtualise our environment. This means that we don't have to have as many physical servers to split our infrastructure as we would otherwise. vSphere also enables us to move our virtual machines between different servers as required such as if we need to perform essential maintenance on a host while keeping to our belief of having high availability of all of our services wherever possible.

      vSphere provides a central management interface for the entire stack. In addition to application level redundancy, VM level redundancy is offered through HA and DRS.
