Alluxio featured in a16z’s LLM App Stack

The LLM App stack serves as a blueprint for developers from tech companies and AI-advanced companies building applications powered by LLM. Alluxio is well-positioned in the LLM stack as part of the data pipeline. Alluxio sits at the intersection of compute and storage, and provides an efficient offline model training cache capable of serving datasets of any size directly to training nodes without impacting the training performance, thereby accelerating model training and serving, boosting GPU utilization, and reducing costs for AI workloads.

Top Data Predictions for 2024

Our Founder and CEO, Haoyuan Li, has revealed the top data predictions for 2024. Predictions include compute power as the new oil, moving GenAI from pilots to production, overcoming data silos, cloud cost optimization, and a shift towards commoditized storage, among others.

Alluxio Named to the InsideBigData Impact 50 List and Emerging Startups 2024

We are honored to be named to the InsideBigData Impact 50 list and recognized as one of the Emerging Startups 2024: Top Big Data Analytics Startups 🎉

KubeCon Europe 2024 | Advanced CSI-FUSE Filesystem for AI/ML Data Management in Kubernetes | Tuesday, March 19, 15:50 CET

AI/ML workloads, known for their data intensity, often depend on cloud storage. However, Kubernetes faces significant challenges in accessing this cloud storage data efficiently, primarily due to the lack of a Kubernetes volume interface and a heavy reliance on object storage-specific APIs. In this session, Lu Qiu, AI Platform Tech Lead @ Alluxio will discuss how to use an advanced CSI-FUSE filesystem to address the above challenges and guide users in selecting the most suitable CSI-FUSE solution for their specific Kubernetes AI/ML workloads.

Big Data Bellevue Meetup | Enhancing Python Data Loading in the Cloud for AI/ML | Thursday, March 21 @ 6:30 – 7:30 PM PT

Join the Big Data Bellevue Meetup (Seattle & Virtual, Thursday, March 21 @ 6:30 PM) to hear from Bin Fan (VP of Open Source @ Alluxio), who will discuss a critical challenge of optimizing data loading for distributed Python applications within AI/ML workloads in the cloud, focusing on popular frameworks like Ray and Hugging Face. 

Data Council | Tackling I/O Challenges in Modern Data Lakes | Thursday, March 28

It has become increasingly popular to build modern open-source data lakes for big data analytics and AI workloads. On the application side, the I/O workload is also quickly evolving in its patterns. For example, recent machine learning jobs tend to retrieve hundreds of millions of relatively small files/objects in training, which increasingly challenge the scalability, cost-efficiency and throughput of metadata serving. In this talk, Hope Wang, Developer Advocate at Alluxio, will share the analysis of these industry trends, challenges, and success stories working in the open-source ecosystem.
