Apache Mesos Cookbook

By: David Blomquist, Tomasz Janiszewski

Overview of this book

Apache Mesos is open source cluster sharing and management software. Deploying and managing scalable applications in large-scale clustered environments can be difficult, but Apache Mesos makes it easier with efficient resource isolation and sharing across application frameworks. The goal of this book is to guide you through the practical implementation of the Mesos core along with a number of Mesos supported frameworks. You will begin by installing Mesos and then learn how to configure clusters and maintain them. You will also see how to deploy a cluster in a production environment with high availability using Zookeeper. Next, you will get to grips with using Mesos, Marathon, and Docker to build and deploy a PaaS. You will see how to schedule jobs with Chronos. We’ll demonstrate how to integrate Mesos with big data frameworks such as Spark, Hadoop, and Storm. Practical solutions backed with clear examples will also show you how to deploy elastic big data jobs. You will find out how to deploy a scalable continuous integration and delivery system on Mesos with Jenkins. Finally, you will configure and deploy a highly scalable distributed search engine with ElasticSearch. Throughout the course of this book, you will get to know tips and tricks along with best practices to follow when working with Mesos.

Preparing Ubuntu 14.04 for a Mesos installation from source code

In this recipe, we will prepare the Ubuntu 14.04 operating system for a Mesos source code installation.

Getting ready

You must be running a 64-bit version of the Ubuntu 14.04 operating system and it should be patched to the most current patch level using apt-get prior to building the Mesos source code.

How to do it...

  1. First, we need to sync the latest package lists from the apt repositories with the update command:
$ sudo apt-get update
  1. Then, we install the prerequisite packages for building and running the Mesos source code:
$ sudo apt-get install -y tar wget git openjdk-7-
jdk autoconf libtool
build-essential python-dev python-boto libcurl4-
nss-dev libsasl2-dev
libsasl2-modules maven libapr1-dev libsvn-dev
  1. Next, continue to the Downloading, building, and installing the Mesos source code recipe at the end of this chapter.

How it works...

Preparing the operating system will enable us to build and install the Mesos source code. Next, you will need to download the Mesos source files and build the code.
