Mesosphere, the main commercial outfit behind the Apache Mesos datacenter and container orchestration project, has taken a good look at its user base and found that they gravitate toward a few fundamental use cases.
Survey data released recently by Mesosphere in the “Apache Mesos 2016 Survey Report,” indicates that Mesos users focus on running containers at scale, using Mesos to deploy big data frameworks, and relying heavily on the core tool set that Mesos and DC/OS provide rather than using substitutes.

Created in 2009, Mesos was built to run workloads of all types and sizes across clusters of systems. DC/OS, released back in 2015 by Mesosphere, automates the deployment, provisioning, and scaling of applications with Mesos as the underlying technology. Thus, it casts Mesos as a commodity similar to Docker, which offers ease in working with long-standing containerization techniques.
