Alluxio 2.3 was just released at the end of June 2020. Calvin and Bin will go over the new features and integrations available and share learnings from the community. Any questions about the release and on-going community feature development are welcome.
ADVANCED ANALYTICS & AI ON REMOTE DATA FOR HYBRID AND MULTI-CLOUD
Open Source Data Orchestration for the Cloud
Alluxio enables compute
Bring your data close to compute.
Make your data local to compute workloads for Spark caching, Presto caching, Hive caching and more.
Make your data accessible.
No matter if it sits on-prem or in the cloud, HDFS or S3, make your files and objects accessible in many different ways.
Make your data as elastic as compute.
Effortlessly orchestrate your data for compute in any cloud, even if data is spread across multiple clouds.
“zero-copy” burst user spotlight: walmart
Why Walmart chose Alluxio’s “Zero-Copy” burst solution:
- No requirement to persist data into the cloud
- Improved query performance and no network hops on recurrent queries
- Lower costs without the need for creating data copies
Featured Use Cases and Deployments
Zero-copy hybrid bursting with no app changes to intelligently make remote data accessible in the public cloud.
Zero-copy bursting across data centers for Presto, Spark, and Hive with no app changes on data stored in HDFS.
Interact with Alluxio in any stack
Pick a compute. Pick a storage. Alluxio just works.

This article describes how engineers in the Data Service Center at Tencent PCG leverages Alluxio to optimize the analytics performance by 200% and minimize the operating cost in building Tencent Beacon Growing, a real-time data analytics platform.
A collaboration of Alibaba, Alluxio, and Nanjing University in tackling the problems of Deep Learning model training in the cloud. Our goal was to reduce the cost and complexity of data access for Deep Learning training in a hybrid environment, which resulted in over 40% reduction in training time and cost.
Alluxio, the developer of open source cloud data orchestration software, today announced it has been named to the Computer Reseller News (CRN) Big Data 100 list – “The Coolest Data Management and Integration Tool Companies,” chosen a 2020 Data Breakthrough Awards “Best Data Access Solution of the Year” winner, and awarded an honorable mention on InsideBIGDATA “IMPACT 50 List for Q2 2020.”
This article describes how Alluxio can accelerate the training of deep learning models in a hybrid cloud environment when using Intel’s Analytics Zoo open source platform, powered by oneAPI. Details on the new architecture and workflow, as well as Alluxio’s performance benefits and benchmarks results will be discussed.
