      Description

      CERN developed and is using CernVM File System (CVMFS) to distribute terabytes of software to hundreds of thousands of nodes across hundreds of datacenters. CVMFS uses a combination of lazy loading, extensive indexing, deduplication, caching and geographic distribution. This help to significantly reduce the network load and speed-up the distribution.

      All these features make CVMFS a very attractive candidate for solving container-image management and distribution problem in Mesos. To get more context, please refer to the MesosCon'16 talk.

      To integrate with Unified Containerizer, we can add a new Image type (i.e., CVMFS) and a new Provisioner Store. We should always use the bind backend so that we can leverage the on-demand fetching feature of CVMFS.

      The prototype implementation can be found here:
