RESEARCH PAPER: A Single Platform For Container Orchestration and Data Services

By Rhett Dillingham, Patrick Moorhead - October 16, 2017
Mesosphere DC/OS offers enterprises a cohesive platform combining the disparate set of open source container orchestration and data-intensive application tools with automated best practices to ease the work of building, deploying, and operating modern applications. With the recent addition of Kubernetes for container orchestration, DC/OS stands out as a platform for managing both stateless and stateful applications across hybrid cloud deployments with optimized infrastructure utilization. This eases adoption of new technologies with reduced risk and delivers considerable flexibility to use multiple cloud infrastructures cost-efficiently.
