Abstract: This talk gives an overview of the cluster management system used at Google. The cluster management system runs virtually every server side application at Google. This means it runs thousands of different tasks in a large number of data centres across the world. This talk gives an overview of the system, its architecture as how the user sees it. The talk also gives some insights into the challenges of workload distribution and using clusters efficiently.
