2022 Industry Predictions

As we move into 2022, it’s time to think about what we’ve learned as well as the trends we’re seeing. We expect major developments in cloud, AI, deep learning and data analytics in 2022. We will see even more advances in AI, machine learning and analytic workloads with new services to support organizations. Here are 5 major data predictions for 2022.

Alluxio Day VIII: Featuring Apache Iceberg and Presto

Our eighth Alluxio Day event featured fellow Alluxio Open Source community contributors from Apache Iceberg, Presto, WeRide and Alluxio core team. Sessions covered the latest ML & AI use cases, Presto, Iceberg and Alluxio integration experience, and explained how to accelerate Spark analytics workloads with Alluxio.

Accelerating Machine Learning / Deep Learning in the Cloud: Architecture and Benchmark

New whitepaper describes how Alluxio can dramatically improve end-to-end distributed machine learning times in the cloud. The paper includes comparative analysis and benchmarking. See how Alluxio can benefit your training pipeline.


With the world shifting beyond Hadoop and exploring new ways to apply AI/ML, Alluxio has helped hundreds of organizations to modernize their data infrastructure, provide simpler access to new data stores, and speed their analytics and AI/ML applications. We have scaled mega-cloud object storage support using RocksDB for off-heap storage; and added native support for interfaces, such as the S3 API. In addition, Alluxio becomes cloud native with Kubernetes as the platform for hybrid and multi-cloud data analytics and AI.

The latest Alluxio 2.7 release has led to 8-12x improved I/O efficiency for machine learning at a lower cost, and further accelerated analytics workloads. Alluxio 2.7 is available for both the open source Community Edition and Alluxio Enterprise Edition. Download here.
