DigitalOcean, the fast-growing cloud hosting provider, today announced that it has partnered with Mesosphere to allow its users to quickly deploy a Mesosphere cluster on its platform. The idea behind Mesosphere is to allow developers to treat a cluster on DigitalOcean, Google Compute Engine, AWS and similar platforms as a single pool or resources for their applications. The service is based on the open-source Apache Mesos project.
Thanks to this partnership between the two companies, DigitalOcean users can now set up a Mesos cluster in a few minutes, without the need to follow a complex step-by-step guide to get started. Users can simply pick from two starter configurations (a small one for development and a larger one that runs on twelve servers for production services that need to be highly available) or create their own custom install by choosing the number and types of DigitalOceanâs SSD-based instances they want. The whole process should only take a few minutes.
