Mesosphere vs Nomad: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mesosphere as "Combine your datacenter servers and cloud instances into one shared pool". Mesosphere offers a layer of software that organizes your machines, VMs, and cloud instances and lets applications draw from a single pool of intelligently- and dynamically-allocated resources, increasing efficiency and reducing operational complexity. On the other hand, Nomad is detailed as "A cluster manager and scheduler". 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.

Mesosphere and Nomad can be categorized as "Cluster Management" tools.
