Mesos, Kubernetes, and Infrastructure of the Future with Dharmesh Kakadia

Mesos and Kubernetes are tools for distributed systems management. Kubernetes is built with an emphasis on running services, whereas Mesos is commonly used for a wider variety of workloads, including data infrastructure like Spark and Kafka. Mesos can also be used as a platform to provide resource management for Kubernetes.

Dharmesh Kakadia is the author of Apache Mesos Essentials, and has spent time studying both Mesos and Kubernetes. He joins the show to explain the strengths of both platforms, and how they can be used together. In addition to dissecting Mesos and Kubernetes, we had a wide-ranging discussion, from cloud providers to software architecture to business strategy.
