Overview of this book

Apache Mesos is an open source cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications or frameworks. This book will help you build a strong foundation of Mesos' capabilities along with practical examples to support the concepts explained throughout the book. Learn Apache Mesos dives straight into how Mesos works. You will be introduced to the distributed system and its challenges and then learn how you can use Mesos and its framework to solve data problems. You will also gain a full understanding of Mesos' internal mechanisms and get equipped to use Mesos and develop applications. Furthermore, this book lets you explore all the steps required to create highly available clusters and build your own Mesos frameworks. You will also cover application deployment and monitoring. By the end of this book, you will have learned how to use Mesos to make full use of machines and how to simplify data center maintenance.

Setting up the framework

This section will give you insights on how to set up a multi-node cluster.

We already have Marathon and master servers ready, but they are in our development environment. So, we will change some configurations, and then extend them to production! Further, we will be including more servers as well, as described in the architecture diagram in the previous section.

The steps to install the necessary packages are as follows:

  1. Add the Mesos repository with the following command:
rpm -Uvh

This needs to be run on both mesos-master and slave servers.

  1. After this, we can install mesos as follows:
sudo yum install mesos

On the master server, this will install both master and slave services, but we will stop the slave services from running on all three master servers. Run this installation...
