DC/OS Introduction and MCQs Solution

DC/OS Introduction

DC/OS stands for Data Center Operating System and it lives up to its name. It allows you to think of all of your servers as a single pool of resources.

For many companies, containers have become the standard unit of deployment, and with good reason; containers provide consistency for developers and operations teams. They allow developers to package up their code and dependencies into one unit. Operations teams are able to take the containers and deploy them, regardless of what’s running inside. Once you master deploying and running containers, you’ll have a consistent way to manage your services. 

There’s also a trend where companies are running big data, machine learning, and AI solutions for themselves. Running different types of workloads along side each other can be difficult and costly. If you have servers dedicated to a specific workload such as running Cassandra, then that server probably isn’t being utilized to its potential. 

Luckily DC/OS is able to help tame the complexity of managing containers, as well as to run CI/CD tools, big data, machine learning, and AI services.
