While Kubernetes continues to gain in popularity for cloud applications, many organizations run popular frameworks deployed on Mesos. The need to support multiple orchestration frameworks can result in added cost and complexity as organizations struggle to manage separate, siloed environments. Based on earlier work done for HPC users, Univa has contributed their Universal Resource Broker (URB) Technology to the Kubernetes community as an open-source project. The freely available software allows any Mesos compatible framework including (including Spark, Hadoop, Storm, Jenkins, Marathon and Chronos) to run along-side native Kubernetes services on a shared Kubernetes cluster providing the opportunity simplify environments and consolidate infrastructure.

In his talk Mr. Ferstl will discuss the challenge of running mixed workloads on Kubernetes, provide an architectural overview of the URB and provide a demonstration of the technology. He will also explain how Mesos users or application developers can get started quickly with the technology, and consider it for use in their own environments and applications.
