Google and Mesosphere partner on new cloud platform

New web app will trim down the time taken to deploy Mesos clusters.

By CBR Staff Writer

Google has collaborated with Mesosphere to develop a new app on Google Cloud Platform that simplifies the development of Apache Mesos clusters.

Mesophere, which has developed software based on the open-source Apache Mesos cluster manager, noted that the new web app will cut down the time taken to deploy Mesos clusters.

As part of the deal, both the firms will also work to incorporate Google’s open-source Kubernetes container cluster manager into Mesos to enhance the deployment of Docker workloads.

Mesosphere co-founder and CEO, Florian Leibert, said: We’re collaborating with Google to bring together Mesosphere, Kubernetes and Google Cloud Platform to make it even easier for our customers to run applications and containers at scale.

"Today, we are excited to announce that we’re bringing Mesosphere to the Google Cloud Platform with a web app that enables customers to deploy Mesosphere clusters in minutes.

"In addition, we are also incorporating Kubernetes into Mesos to manage the deployment of Docker workloads. Together, we provide customers with a commercial-grade, highly-available and production-ready compute fabric."

The new app enables developers to spin up a Mesosphere cluster on Cloud Platform within few clocks, via either standard or custom configurations.

Further, the app automatically installs and organises the Mesos kernel, Zookeeper and Marathon, as well as OpenVPN.

Leibert added: "Also, we’re excited that this functionality will soon be incorporated into the Google Cloud Platform dashboard via the click-to-deploy feature.

"To get started with our web app, simply login with your Google credentials and spin up a Mesos cluster."
