New,​ ​innovative hardware​ ​brings​ ​with​ ​it​ ​the​ opportunity for architectural disruption as well as the ​challenge of how to effectively tap into a vast existing ecosystem of software.  

Cloud native technologies like DC/OS have only increased the velocity and importance of software.  And yet the value to be unlocked from new architectures is ever more compelling, and well worth the struggle.  

Previous MesosCon talks (Asia, June 2017) have spoken about running Mesos on Armv8 processors.  Packet’s Ed Vielmetti will ​use the Qualcomm Centriq™ 2400 (the world’s first 10nm server processor), as a window into the benefits and challenges of embracing new hardware.   

With 48 highly optimized cores, the system provides a compelling new resource for software like DC/OS that is trying to help applications and users get the most out of their infrastructure. Furthermore, Qualcomm’s efforts in concert with the community provides an excellent window into the ecosystem development journey.

As J.R.R. Tolkien said: “All's well that ends better.”
