HashiCorp's Million Container Challenge is a test for how efficiently its scheduler, Nomad, can schedule one million containers across 5,000 hosts. The goal of the challenge is to observe and optimize the behavior of Nomad at exceptional scale. Ultimately Nomad was able to schedule one million containers across 5,000 hosts in under five minutes. This post outlines the lessons learned.
