Apache Mesos has utilised two main container types, Mesos containers & Docker. Docker containers are the most visible container types in mainstream operations, but they have a major drawback in some use cases, they aren’t an entire system. They have been trimmed down immensely to the bare minimum. LXD offers the ability to run full operating systems & therefore within a Mesos ecosystem. Deploying machine containers, instead of application containers, this allows Mesos to provide Infrastructure as a Service capabilities. In supporting LXD we then extend the software support on Mesos by allowing users to apt-get or yum install software on the nodes rather than being bound to pre built containers. LXD support allows users to deploy any software they choose & leverage existing tooling like Juju, Puppet & Chef over their Mesos resources as Sys Admins would in a traditional deployment.
