Going beyond a handful of Docker containers, one quickly discovers the need for an orchestration layer. In this talk, we will discuss orchestrating containers at scale with off-the-shelf tools including Kubernetes, Mesos and Marathon. We will share our experiences around scalability and availability considerations, including service discovery using Mesos-DNS and HAproxy for load-balancing.
