So we have about 10 large applications to over from a Chef/EC2/Java and/or Rails deployment to a containerized platform. Then standard at my organization is OpenShfit (just went live recently - but we have dev/test and preprod/prod clusters up). But there is some holdout by a few individuals who think that our own Mesos build on AWS would be better and cheaper. My research says that if you have a massive application that needs to scale to extremes, then Mesos might be the right choice, but Kubernetes has gained steam and traction - and AWS:ReInvent helped to solidify it as the choice in the VHS versus BetaMax showdown of 2017. Thoughts?
