Mesos has proven to be a powerful framework for orchestrating containerized applications in data centers with fixed pools of resources. In the cloud, however, pre-provisioning VMs to run Mesos workloads slows our ability to scale applications up and down with changing demand. Worse, VMs impose a performance penalty on application performance and risk becoming pets if not managed properly.
True container-native infrastructure can solve this problem by eliminating VMs and running Mesos workloads on bare metal across an entire cloud, rather than on a defined “cluster.” Eliminating the VM increases performance and speeds scaling, but how does this work and how can applications best take advantage of it?

He may be color blind, but he compensates with a wardrobe of clashing patterns.
