A Novel Approach for Distributing and Managing Container Images: Integrating CernVM File System and Mesos - Jakob Blomer, CERN; Jie Yu & Artem Harutyunyan, Mesosphere

CERN developed and is using CernVM File System (CVMFS) to distribute terabytes of software to hundreds of thousands of nodes across hundreds of datacenters. CVMFS uses a combination of lazy loading, extensive indexing, deduplication, caching and geographic distribution. This help to significantly reduce the network load and speed-up the distribution.
All these features make CVMFS a very attractive candidate for solving container-image management and distribution problem in Mesos.
In this talk we are going to present our work on integrating CVMFS client with Mesos agents as well as show how CVMFS backend can be used as a secure and scalable container image registry. We will also run a demo in which we will show how can one launch a container running a popular Linux distribution (image size is about ~300MB) by only downloading a tiny fraction of the image (~6MB).
