Getting the Most Out of Your Mesos

Monday, October 29, 2018 - 5:00 pm5:30 pm

David Morrison, Yelp


Apache Mesos is a powerful tool for running workloads across a distributed cluster of machines. It has powered Yelp’s production infrastructure since 2014 and runs an increasing variety of workloads, from traditional stateless services to batch and machine learning workloads. In this talk we describe how we use data and analytics to push Mesos to the limits, while providing a better experience for our users and our developers.
