Apache Mesos Cookbook

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.

Apache ZooKeeper is a distributed key-value store that provides centralized coordination, synchronization, naming, and group services for distributed systems. ZooKeeper was developed as an independent system that can be integrated with other large distributed systems so that developers can focus on distributed application development and not on coordination services. Mesos depends on ZooKeeper for leader election so configuring Mesos with ZooKeeper is critical to running a highly available Mesos cluster. We will guide you through installing ZooKeeper and then configuring it with Mesos.

In the following recipes, we will give examples for configuring both a single development Mesos instance with ZooKeeper and for a highly available, multi-master Mesos cluster with ZooKeeper. ZooKeeper is not required to run a single instance of Mesos. However, you may need to deploy a single instance of ZooKeeper with a single Mesos instance to support development of frameworks that depend on ZooKeeper...
