Karl Isenberg
Distributed Systems Architect, Mesosphere

Website | @karlkfi

Karl Isenberg is a distributed systems architect at Mesosphere working on DC/OS (the Datacenter Operating System). Prior to Mesosphere, Karl worked on CloudFoundry and BOSH at Pivotal. Karl’s current side projects include Probe (a service-ready check), Inject (a Golang dependency injection library), and Mesos Compose Docker-in-Docker. Karl is, as of this writing, the only person to have been a committer on CloudFoundry, Kubernetes, and DC/OS, so he is uniquely qualified to address the container platform market, cloud-native frameworks, lifecycle management strategies, and deployment tools in general. Karl’s publications include Obfuscation, an irregularly updated tech blog, and a more active stream of technology-related tweets.

The container orchestration wars are upon us. A dozen container orchestrators vie to be the kernel of the modern data center. But can the warring parties come together on a standard interface for modern cluster operations? Karl Isenberg explores what these parties have in common and outlines what a common interface might look like for operating these distributed operating systems. Read more.
