    Absolutely amazing that twitter can run mesos all on bare metal at the same time Air BnB can run mesos all in the cloud and both develop their own niche projects orbiting mesos in their respective spaces.

      HI David - I don't disagree with you on potential improvements to resource allocation in the cloud environment. However, the idea was born from running it directly on commodity infrastructure (e.g. Borg/Omega) for better efficiency and lower costs as compared to dynamic partitioning in virtualized environment.

      Malay, keep in mind that cost is a function of AWS charges *as well as* your ops team's productivity. In other words, what's your ratio of ops team headcount vs total # servers? For a smaller firm, that ratio can become a crucial cost factor.
