At Banno JHA we are working to automate our infrastructure using Mesos and Terraform. If you are interested in working with us send me an email: nicgrayson <at> gmail <dot> com
Apache Kafka - kafka.apache.org
Apache Kafka is a publish-subscribe messaging rethought as a distributed commit log.
Apache Mesos - mesos.apache.org
Apache Mesos abstracts CPU, memory, storage, and other compute resources away from machines (physical or virtual), enabling fault-tolerant and elastic distributed systems to easily be built and run effectively.
Terraform - terraform.io/intro/index.html
Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently.
Mesos Framework Overview
This Mesos frameowork provides a command line interface and a REST API. This framework allows operators to manage and update a Kafka cluster. The management of the cluster is performed manually each time a cluster needs to be modified. More information about this framework is on the Github Project github.com/mesos/kafka.
Terraform Provider Overview
Using the framework’s API we are able to create, update, and destroy a cluster.
Starting the Framework Scheduler
Start the scheduler with this command:
I would suggest launching the scheduler with Marathon to ensure it’s uptime.
How to use the Terraform Provider
Configuring the Provider
The provider can be configured manually via
or with environmental variables:
