What it is:

Apache Mesos abstracts CPU, memory, storage, and other compute resources away from machines (physical or virtual), enabling fault-tolerant and elastic distributed systems to easily be built and run effectively.

Mesos is built using the same principles as the Linux kernel, only at a different level of abstraction. The Mesos kernel runs on every machine and provides applications (e.g., Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Elastic Search) with API’s for resource management and scheduling across entire datacenter and cloud environments.Apache Mesos

Added tag . I'm copying that text into the tag summary and wiki so it has something, but feel free to improve on that.

  • FYI, on Stack Overflow, the tag is simply mesos; not sure if you want to keep the apache- prefix or not. Jan 25, 2015 at 20:17
  • @MishaBrukman mesos is it's synonym, so we should be fine. Jan 25, 2015 at 20:22
