Today's applications and data have outgrown single machines. Whether organizations like it or not, their engineers are building distributed systems. The computer is now the data center, the process is now a distributed system, and threads are now components of the distributed system. But provisioning and operating these distributed systems is still a mostly manual endeavor, even though concepts of modern operating systems apply naturally.

In this talk I'll present Apache Mesos, a "kernel" for the data center that provides primitives and abstractions for building and running distributed systems. Mesos has been running at scale for over two years at Twitter and since it graduated from the incubator last summer numerous frameworks have been built on top.  This talk will explore the fundamentals of Mesos, as well as what it takes to build applications and frameworks on top.
