In this chapter, I will concentrate on frameworks that can be used to create and extend distributed systems. When I mention frameworks, I mean third-party, open-source, and private suppliers of libraries for developing big data and distributed system-related applications. The term framework is already used in Mesos clusters to describe systems that are deployed onto the cluster. The frameworks described in this chapter are quite different and are used to extend and aid the development of large-scale distributed systems. I will refer to the big data stack diagram (Figure 8-1) that has been used throughout previous chapters.
