Proper tool configuration is the key to running Mesos smoothly without any problems and with minimal operator assistance. A deep understanding of what each option means is required to provide the ideal configuration for a specific use case. There are over a hundred options to configure Mesos. Some of them accept Boolean values but most of them can have multiple values, which means there are countless ways to run Mesos. In Chapter 2, Implementing High Availability with Apache ZooKeeper, you have seen how to run Mesos in high availability mode. Here we will focus on more advanced options.

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.
