Bring your data to compute with open source

Data orchestration for analytics and machine learning in the cloud

Alluxio enables compute

Data locality

Bring your data close to compute.
Make your data local to compute workloads for Spark caching, Presto caching, Hive caching and more.

Data Accessibility

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.

Data On-Demand

Make your data as elastic as compute.
Effortlessly orchestrate your data for compute in any cloud, even if data is spread across multiple clouds.

alluxio for data engineers

Are your Presto/Spark queries slow on S3?

Do your Presto/Spark queries have inconsistent performance?

Are your metadata operations slow on S3?

Are your egress costs too high?

alluxio for data architects

Can you share data across your app framework?

Do you have problems running remote/multiple storage systems?

Is running HDFS in the cloud for temporary storage expensive?

Do you have the directive to use cloud for analytics?

What’s Happening

What’s new in Alluxio 2: from seamless operations to structured data management

Alluxio 2.0 expands the system in three major directions including improving the operability of the system, having more advanced data management, as well as re-architecting the system to be able to scale to 1 billion + file. The system is now cloud native on AWS, Google Cloud, and allow users to enable native deployment with K8s. The new advanced data management enables data migration and replication from diff storage systems.

Community Online Office Hour *
How to Develop and Operate Cloud-Native Data Platforms and Applications

This talk will overview two projects at Electronic Arts (EA) that address the mismatch by data orchestration: One project automatically generates configurations for all components in a large monitoring system, which reduces the daily average number of alerts from ~1000 to ~20. The other project introduces Alluxio for caching and unifying address space across ETL and analytics workloads, which substantially simplifies architecture, improves performance, and reduces ops overheads.
