How Container Schedulers and Software Defined Storage will Change the Cloud


Persistent applications can be complex to manage and operate at scale, but tend to be perfect for modern schedulers such as Apache Mesos, Kubernetes, and etc. The current trend in Containers is taking their ephemeral nature and turning it upside-down by running databases, NoSQL, wordpress, and etc within them. Internal direct attached storage and external storage are both options in running your long running, persistent applications. The problem is how do you run these applications and containers in production environments?

This talk outlines how 2 Layer Scheduling, as known as the Offer-Accept model, and Software Defined Storage enables deployment of managed frameworks and tasks, while maintaining high availability, scale-out growth, and automation. This combination of technology will help build a "skynet" like architecture for persistent application and containers in the cloud.
