HashiCorp Nomad demo and Citadel use case
Jul 13, 2017
Using Nomad to deploy and run any application on any infrastructure with one workflow.
Cluster schedulers have become increasingly popular, in large part due to the rise of Docker and container orchestration for user-facing services. The original promise, however, was the unification of compute resources to support a common workflow for both long-running services and batch workloads. Nomad enables an organization like Citadel to run any workload on any infrastructure, with an emphasis on flexibility, ease-of-use, scalability and performance. Highlights include:
- Support for any workload, including Docker, virtualized, batch, application runtimes like Java, and long-running services.
- A single binary for both clients and servers with multi-region federation and built-in high availability.
- Optimistic concurrency, in which all servers participate in scheduling decisions, increasing total throughput and reducing latency.
