This charm creates a DCOS Master node. DCOS is the container operating system from Mesosphere(https://mesosphere.com).


DC/OS is the Data Center Operating System from Mesosphere. It is built upon Apache MESOS and is designed to turn your data center into a single pool of resources that applications can utilise.

Mesosphere released DC/OS open source edition to run on a number of cloud computing services and also support for Centos, this charm leverages that capability to install DC/OS inside Ubuntu using the Juju modelling framework.

Juju and DC/OS make an excellent fit because it allows administrators to add new resource as simply as adding more DC/OS Agent units and deploying more applications.



This charm is currently under heavy development and has limited testing outside of EC2

Deploying this charm:

juju deploy dcos-master

To view the dashboard:

juju expose dcos-master

and visit http:/// to view the landing page. To view the Zookeeper info you can also visit http://:8181.

Scale out Usage

DC/OS provides a master and agent setup. For fault tolerance it is recommended to run more than 1 master node, these are self configuring and distributing.

This DC/OS charm will accept 1,3 or 5 masters. DC/OS performance actually degrades with more and 3 or 5 will provide HA capabaility.

Unlike the DC/OS official installations, this will allow for scalaing using juju add-unit to add new master nodes.
