As Coté Memo subscribers know I’ve been working on a report on Mesosphere. It now up, as alway available for 451 clients.
Here’s the 451 Take:
As with vendors like CoreOS, Docker and Red Hat (and the work around Google Kubernetes), Mesosphere is rethinking the infrastructure needed for cloud-native applications. We see a growing demand to rewrite and re-platform the bulk of applications existent in the consumer and enterprise spaces to fit into mobile and tablet form factors and take advantage cloud infrastructure. For example, the recent IBM/Apple partnership promises to develop ‘hundreds’ of iOS native applications and the back-end services to support those apps. As cloud platforms like OpenStack mature, alternatives like Mesosphere may present architectural – and wallet-share – competition for public and private cloud. As companies look to solve these problems, they may find themselves intellectually behind – most companies are just now addressing lower-level cloud infrastructure needs – requiring companies like Mesosphere to do a hefty amount of thought-leadership and market-making.
If you’re not a client, take a trial for a spin, it’s good stuff back there behind the paywall.
