1:45 - Managing Resource at Scale with Apache Mesos - Dharmesh Kakadia,  Research Assistant , Microsoft

Resource management at scale without sacrificing performance is challenging. Apache Mesos is a cluster management framework allowing resources to be shared among multiple frameworks like Hadoop, Spark, Storm, Jenkins, Aurora, Chronos and others. Mesos makes better utilization of cluster resources while providing isolation. Due to flexible approach of fine grained resource sharing, its very easy to run existing applications and frameworks on top of Mesos. 

Dharmesh is currently a Research Assistant @ Microsoft Research India and MS by Research student at IIIT-Hyderabad. His research interest is at the intersection of Systems and Data. He is currently focusing on resource management in large scale data infrastructures. He is currently also writing a book on Apache Mesos target to practitioners.

2:20 - Alert Management at Scale with Citoengine -  Cyrus, Sr. Tech Lead ( Production Engineering ) , InMobi

CitoEngine is a completely open source alert management and automation too. It allows you to manage large volume of alerts and trigger actions. These actions could notify or act on the alert by executing a script (a plugin). It is ideal alert management service for teams who have multiple monitoring systems. Look for Citoengine at : &

Cyrus have been working as a sysadmin for over 14 years. Over the years, he has found that managing alerts is one of the hardest problems, especially during outages. This project is his independent effort to come up with a simplistic approach to solving this problem. Cyrus is also well known in our community.
