How We Built a Chargeback System for Twitter’s Compute Platform (Mesos/Aurora) That Incentives Higher Resource Utilization [I] - Jeyappragash Jeyakeerthi, Twitter Inc.
Twitter is powered by a collection of diverse, multi-tenant infrastructure and platform services. We run Mesos/Aurora for general compute, Manhattan for storage, Hadoop for batch compute and many more. We also run many platform services and one such example is our custom observability (monitoring) service.

Given Twitter scale, these services should always be available, reliable, scalable, well utilized, cost effective and flexible. The multi tenant nature of these services brings increased management complexity and a host of challenges, for both the service owner and end-users. Here are a few, that we will be covering (along with uses cases) during the first half part of the talk:
- resource discovery
- capacity planning
- resource ownership
- resource provisioning through self-service
- resource utilization and cost tracking

In the next half, we will talk about our solution i.e the Cloud Platform Management System: A simple way to catalogue, identify, plan, provision, meter usage and chargeback resources of multi-tenant infrastructure services. We will also share a case study on how we improved the overall utilization of the general compute platform (Mesos/Aurora) after being on-boarded into the Cloud Platform Management System. Finally, we will share our vision for the next generation cloud platform for multi-tenant services.

Simplifying Container Operations with Habitat [B] - Michael Ducy, Chef
Container Orchestration Systems make for a great operational experience for deploying and management of containers. But that’s only part of the story when running containers in production. How do you build containers that contain only what you need (like no build systems/tools)? How do you orchestrate configuration of your application after the containers have been launched? How do you make it easy to modify an application config while keeping the containers immutable? How can you give your developers a means to declare dependencies for their applications?

Habitat, our open-source project for application automation, simplifies container management by packaging applications in a compact, atomic, and easily auditable format that makes it easier to deploy your application on various container runtimes
