Apache Aurora vs OpenStack: What are the differences?

Apache Aurora: An Apcahe Mesos framework for scheduling jobs, originally developed by Twitter. Apache Aurora is a service scheduler that runs on top of Mesos, enabling you to run long-running services that take advantage of Mesos' scalability, fault-tolerance, and resource isolation; OpenStack: Open source software for building private and public clouds. OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.

Apache Aurora and OpenStack are primarily classified as "Cluster Management" and "Open Source Cloud" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Apache Aurora are:

  • Deployment and scheduling of jobs
  • The abstraction a “job” to bundle and manage Mesos tasks
  • A rich DSL to define services

On the other hand, OpenStack provides the following key features:

  • Compute
  • Storage
  • Networking

Apache Aurora is an open source tool with 612 GitHub stars and 231 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache Aurora's open source repository on GitHub.

Intel, Best Buy, and HubSpot are some of the popular companies that use OpenStack, whereas Apache Aurora is used by Twitter, Chartbeat, and Oscar Health. OpenStack has a broader approval, being mentioned in 66 company stacks & 50 developers stacks; compared to Apache Aurora, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Apache Aurora and OpenStack?
    Kubernetes
    Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
    Marathon
    Marathon is an Apache Mesos framework for container orchestration. Marathon provides a REST API for starting, stopping, and scaling applications. Marathon is written in Scala and can run in highly-available mode by running multiple copies. The state of running tasks gets stored in the Mesos state abstraction.
    Apache Mesos
    Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that simplifies the complexity of running applications on a shared pool of servers.
    Nomad
    Nomad is a cluster manager, designed for both long lived services and short lived batch processing workloads. Developers use a declarative job specification to submit work, and Nomad ensures constraints are satisfied and resource utilization is optimized by efficient task packing. Nomad supports all major operating systems and virtualized, containerized, or standalone applications.
    DC/OS
    Unlike traditional operating systems, DC/OS spans multiple machines within a network, aggregating their resources to maximize utilization by distributed applications.
