Apache Mesos, Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark + Custom Enterprise Applications: This stack combined is greater than the sum of each of the pieces of this stack. Mesos can manage resources across an entire data center, Hadoop provides a distributed data store and scalable data processing, and Spark delivers great in-memory and disk-based performance of data processing as well as streaming capabilities. Couple all of that with custom enterprise applications, and the data center turns into a well-oiled machine. When combined, this software stack delivers unlimited flexibility for the entire data center.
