Subject Re: Rebooting the conversation on the Future of bigtop: Abstracting the backplane ? Containers?
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:03:04 GMT
Your right Bruno , I could, but I have no need of such a thing:)....  

And in any case --- this thread is just about sharing ideas, letting the whole community speak
up about their opinions on the future of bigtop. it's not about driving a particular project

Bigtop is a unique project in that we integrate a lot of tools in a rapidly changing landscape,
so it's good to have some feelers out there to see what our users are thinking.  

Thanks all for the feedback, hope to get more!

mesos-framework plugins for ignite and spark underneath.  If other folks are interested, maybe
we could create the "1x" or "in-memory" branch to start hacking on it sometime ?    Maybe
even bring the flink guys in as well, as they are interested in bigtop packaging.
