The Mesosphere Datacenter OS is now GA

There are big days for a startup, and then there are big days for a startup. Today qualifies as the latter, because after two years of building it, our Datacenter Operating System (DCOS) is now generally available. Best of all, it’s free to get started.

When Mesosphere started, its founders had a vision of making the datacenter as easy to use as a laptop. They asked themselves questions that seemed crazy at the time. Why should 40,000 cores in a datacenter or cloud be any different than the 4 cores in a laptop? Why can’t we use a command line or even a graphical UI to navigate a datacenter like it was a desktop machine? Why can’t we install datacenter-scale services with the same ease that we install apps on our iPhones?

From that vision and those questions emerged the Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), an OS as simple to use as the one in your laptop, but that controls entire datacenters or clouds. The DCOS is a new kind of operating system that can scale across tens of thousands of servers. It is a complete OS built around the open-source distributed-systems kernel Apache Mesos. It runs on all of the machines in your datacenter and pools their resources into what looks like one big computer.
