Subject Re: Mesos slaves across network zones
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2014 14:43:37 GMT

We have been running Mesos in Google Compute with slaves in us-central1
and europe-west1 with masters in europe-west1, response times between the
zones have been around 100/110ms.

I am interested in running masters across zones and will evaluate
DRBD/Ceph/GlusterFS for multi-site master.

I am also wondering if anyone has tuned master election with Zookeeper
across zones and also can we switch out the Zookeeper dependency and use

Kind regards
