"Scaling ArangoDB on Mesosphere DCOS"


Recently, ArangoDB integrated its cluster management with Apache Mesos.
This makes it now possible to launch an ArangoDB cluster on a Mesos cluster with a single, albeit complex shell command. In a DCOS-enabled Mesosphere cluster this is even easier, because one can use the dcos subcommand for ArangoDB, which essentially turns a Mesosphere cluster into a single, large computer.

In this talk I explain the whole setup and show (live on stage) how to deploy ArangoDB clusters on Google Compute Engine, and how we used this to scale ArangoDB up until it could sustain[masked] document writes per second.

In his academic career he has worked for 16 years on the development and implementation of new algorithms in computer algebra, mainly for the open source system GAP. During this time he has juggled a lot with mathematical "big data" like group orbits containing trillions of points. Recently he has returned from St Andrews in Scotland to Germany, has shifted his focus to NoSQL databases and now helps to develop ArangoDB.
