Microsoft today announced that they are partnering with Mesosphere to bring the Windows Server ecosystem to the Mesos’ highly scalable and elastic container orchestration world by porting directly to Windows Server. Mesos is one of the most established and proven open source container orchestration technologies, used in very large scale production environments by several Fortune 500 companies. Apart from Mesos, Microsoft already supports Docker Swarm/Compose, Deis, and many others.
Mesos on Windows Server is an open source project and is part of the core Apache Mesos. While this is being developed by both Mesosphere and Microsoft, we’re inviting others in the community to join in the effort. The code will be freely available, making it easy to adopt by all users of Mesos as well as integrate with the Mesosphere DCOS, which is built atop Mesos. The latest version of Mesos on Windows Server is available in the Apache Mesos GitHub today.
