Apache Mesos at Twitter - Benjamin Hindman, Twitter

To meet its challenges of running at scale, Twitter has transitioned over the last few years from a monolithic Ruby on Rails application to a service-oriented architecture. Apache Mesos, a platform for building and running resource-efficient distributed systems at scale, has played a key role in this transition. Mesos acts like the "kernel" for Twitter’s data centers, making it easier, faster, and more-reliable for new services to be launched and maintained.

This talk will focus on the following topics:

  • Brief history of operations at Twitter and how that led to the adoption of Mesos.

  • Designing primitives and abstractions for today’s distributed systems.

  • Challenges of scaling to thousands of nodes while efficiently utilizing resources.

  • Reliability and high-availability at scale.

  • Lessons learned running production software infrastructure.
