Drawing upon more than 15 years of software development experience, Florian “Flo” Leibert is the founder and chief executive officer of Mesosphere, Inc. In this role, Florian Leibert utilizes Apache Mesos, an open-source platform, and is the creator of Chronos for use with the platform.

Built to replace the default “cron” command, which allows Apache Mesos users to schedule tasks, Chronos runs on top of the Apache Mesos platform. In addition, Chronos can interact with frameworks that allow the storage and processing of very large sets of data.

Chronos offers several advantages over the “cron” command, including the ability to schedule jobs using ISO 8601, a standardized method of displaying times and dates, thus ensuring less confusion and more flexibility in scheduling. Further, Chronos supports job scheduling in cases where the beginning of one job is triggered by the conclusion of another.

Florian “Flo” Leibert has an extensive career in software engineering and development. As founder and chief executive officer of Mesosphere, Inc., Florian Leibert has played an instrumental role in the creation of the open source platform Mesosphere DC/OS.

Mesosphere offers a number of catered educational services such as the DC/OS Accelerator to help clients who are looking to implement Mesosphere DC/OS. The company has designed this program to speed up the platform adoption process and ensure that clients make the most of their purchase.

Over the course of 38 days, Mesosphere architects walk clients through the various steps that they will need to successfully integrate the DC/OS system. The Accelerator program begins with the DC/OS Discovery stage, which enables customers to gauge how long deployment will take and establish how the program and training will need to meet their software needs. Clients then move on to the Design portion of the program, during which they work with Mesosphere architects to outline a DC/OS system that will best suit their individual case.

DC/OS Deploy comes next in the Accelerator program. During this crucial stage, Mesosphere directly assists its clients with the deployment of their new platform by conducting Production Readiness Testing, facilitating relevant DC/OS education, and establishing important framework. The Accelerator program concludes with the DC/OS Operate stage. This portion of the program teaches the client how to use their new software by providing the foundation for efficient operations and future system upgrades.
