All things Docker seem to be the defining slogan for Yammer these days. And what other way to run Docker at scale than Mesos?
Yammer wrote an in-house datacenter automation platform which was fraught with problems and restrictions the Mesos landscape promised to solve, and in 2015 engineers at Yammer started exploring it as a possible replacement.
This talk will focus on two core points of the implementation run at Yammer: Docker & Security

The big gotcha: Docker. Everything has to run inside Docker. From Zookeeper to the Mesos agents and even the executors. Dedication, mixed with some despair, eventually resulted in the platform for production today.

Security is the second biggest piece to honor the commitment made to Yammer customers as part of the Office365 suite. The path to provide a good solution to security aspects like compartmentalization, trust bootstrap, access control and transport encryption proved a balancing act between customer commitment and developer friendliness.

In the end Mesos helped us deliver Docker's promise of Build, Ship, Run as the foundation of environments Yammer can trust to run from Dev all the way to Production at scale and anywhere on the planet.
