Building an Apache Mesos Cluster on RancherOS

In this tutorial, I will explain how to deploy a Mesos cluster in containers running on RancherOS and then make our deployment portable across different cloud platforms and virtualization systems.

If you’re not familiar with Apache Mesos, it is an open-source project that provides an elastic and highly available clustering framework. With its efficient resource isolation, it is possible to easily build and manage many distributed systems running on heterogeneous resources. Combined with Apache Zookeeper and the Marathon Framework, it provides a powerful platform for deploying applications.
