Scale-out distributed applications are being created today, not only within web-scale companies, but increasingly within more traditional enterprises. However, our current datacenter technologies are not well-suited to run these applications. Matching resources, such as CPU and RAM with applications, is still a manual and error prone process. What we need are tools to automate the management of datacenter resources, similar to how Uber has automated and revolutionized the taxi industry with their software.

In this session, we will look at what Uber can teach us about how to better manage our datacenters. We will also look at how Apache Mesos, which came out of Twitter, is the ideal tool for implementing these lessons and giving every company the ability to create the datacenter of the future today. This will include a deep dive into the Mesos architecture.
