Huawei, Mesosphere integrate Foundry framework Datacenter Operating System

Huawei and Mesosphere have integrated a new Cloud Foundry framework developed by Huawei that fully supports running cloud-native applications on Mesosphere´s Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), the companies said.

The new framework, called CloudFoundry-Mesos, is open source and available on GitHub.

Built by Huawei in collaboration with Mesosphere, CloudFoundry-Mesos allows cloud-native applications to run in a multiservice environment with reliability, security, scalability and flexibility. The collaboration between Huawei and Mesosphere allows enterprises to develop container-packaged cloud-native applications within a Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service (PaaS) environment, and run those applications on the Mesosphere DCOS concurrently with other workloads.

The DCOS can run on virtually any Linux machine (and soon on Windows), which means enterprises can run cloud-native applications in private datacenter, public cloud or even hybrid environments.

Mesosphere´s DCOS drastically simplifies the process of creating, deploying and managing modern applications. It is built on a foundation of Apache Mesos and other open source technologies. By aggregating up to tens of thousands of machines into a single resource pool, the DCOS lets users easily deploy and manage distributed systems such as Apache Spark, Apache Cassandra and Kubernetes, as well as massive collections of Docker containers, without worrying about which machines they will run on or how they need to be configured.

Huawei is a global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider.

Mesosphere is building the datacenter operating system (DCOS) to help enterprises unlock the next generation of scale, efficiency and automation.
