MemSQL on Mesosphere DCOS

MemSQL is now certified for deployment on the Mesosphere DCOS (Datacenter Operating System). With a few simple commands, users can launch a MemSQL cluster on DCOS.

The Mesosphere DCOS (Datacenter Operating System) is a commercially supported product built on top of Apache Mesos that serves as a datacenter abstraction layer. DCOS deploys distributed applications with a few simple command-line interface (CLI) steps, and handles application provisioning, resource management, and fault tolerance seamlessly. It also centralizes management of a distributed system in a single interface for easy deployment.

MemSQL is a relational, in-memory database optimized for multi-machine deployment. Its distributed nature makes it a good match for DCOS.

The package needed to deploy MemSQL on DCOS can be found in the Mesosphere Universe repository, which allows all DCOS users to install MemSQL anytime simply by running dcos package install memsql from a DCOS console. MemSQL leverages the Marathon scheduler to pull a MemSQL Docker image to deploy the MemSQL software, which is tightly integrated with DCOS.

MemSQL supports a variety of deployment topologies, and the Mesosphere DCOS adds another option to this growing list. MemSQL can be deployed on:

  • bare metal machines in your datacenter
  • virtual machines in your datacenter
  • Docker containers
  • Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure and other public cloud platform providers
  • Mesosphere DCOS
