This post will walk you through configuring your Jenkins server to use a Mesos Cluster to elasticly use Jenkins Slaves running in Mesos. This has the advantage of using your datacenter hardware much more efficiently and you won’t need several jenkins slaves that could potentially be sitteng there doing nothing but costing you money.
UPDATE: My original post made mention of DC/OS where this post doesn’t actually deploy DC/OS, rather we deploy a Mesos/Marathon cluster. I have removed all references and updated to reflect what this post actually turned out to be about. I apologize for any confusion my original post contianed. I am very excited about the idea of datacenter operating systems and possibly jumped the gun a bit. Thanks to everyone who helped shine the light for me.
In this post I will walk you though setting up a Mesos/Marathon cluster using Ubuntu.
