Effective Publisher Video Content: What Should Be Considered?

With today’s easily accessible way of consuming content online, moving content is one of the many rising trends that increasingly improves in hooking online users.

From Traditional to Innovative: What Comes Next? An Outlook of 2018

As we start a fresh year, we continue to build onto 2017’s happenings in the digital advertising industry. We recently reflected on 2017’s trends and buzzworthy topics.

The Anatomy of Apps’ Reachability in a Mesos Cluster

Introduction

At the beginning, we used to cluster our Spark applications using  Apache Yarn as our main Resource Manager. At that time we considered an RM that was more like a “Spark extension,” which was basically used to optimize Spark processes and nothing more. Our usage of Yarn then never went beyond deploying those applications, such as monitoring them via web browser by typing something like http://yarn.url:4040/<spark_app>.

Problems in Yarn came with the need to deploy applications using different Spark versions, which were thus submitted to the cluster as Docker containers. This requirement with the relatively first deploy attempt raised a set of structural issues and unplanned limitations using Yarn. One example: deployed containers used a private ipv4 IP (eg: 10.0.0.20) in the slave, which of course was preventing us from connecting to the Spark-monitoring interface from outside.

After some brainstorming, we worked around this situation by setting up an IPv6 stack for each Yarn slave, thus assigning an IPv6 address to each container and finally reaching the exposed Spark web interface. It was surely working, but then we moved to Mesos.
