Sundial is a soon to be open sourced scheduler for running jobs in Docker containers on AWS ECS. It was developed entirely in house at Gilt. The team previously evaluated off the shelf solutions such as Chronos and Mesos but found the existing solutions to be complex and require a lot of infrastructure to set up. This proved unpalatable in an organization with small engineering teams and no dedicated DevOps team.
Sundial offers an easy to setup solution to job scheduling without the infrastructural overhead of Chronos. It does so by leveraging AWS ECS which offers a container service for Docker containers as tasks or services. Features include viewing live logs for running jobs and saved logs for finished jobs. It provides dependency management between jobs and visualization of dependency graph showing status of failed, succeeded and running jobs. The only requirements are AWS and Docker Registry. Infrastructure is provisioned entirely by Cloudformation and is automatically configured.
