A lot of talks will tell you how to set up container orchestration systems correctly. This talk is about what not to do with your Apache Mesos and DC/OS cluster. Jörg Schad shared some of his favorite and scariest support stories covering typical system-setup, configuration, and application pitfalls for new (and not-so-new) Mesos and DC/OS operators. And, he will give some hints about how to debug those pitfalls if you do encounter them, resulting in fewer nightmares.
Here’s Jörg Schad’s session from DevOpsCon 2017, “Nightmares of a container orchestration system”.
If you’re interested in hearing more from Jörg Schad, we spoke to him just after his session last year about the next big topics in the container world – service meshes and machine learning. More recently, Schad went over the challenges and pitfalls in running Java or JVM based applications in containers and how to solve them.
