ALLUXIO COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER
Alluxio founder and CTO, Haoyuan (H.Y.), opens the Summit with his keynote – Orchestrate A Data Symphony – where he discusses the key challenges and trends impacting data engineering, and explores how data orchestration is a new approach to addressing those challenges.
This is followed by Walmart’s Ashish Tadose presenting on Enterprise Distributed Query Service Powered by Presto & Alluxio Across Clouds at Walmart. Watch Ashish’s talk to see how Alluxio was leveraged to provide consistent optimized query performance within and across clouds.
2.1 is a major release taking Alluxio into the structured data world! Watch Gene’s tech talk “From Files to Tables: Alluxio Structured Data Management” to learn more about Alluxio Structured Data Management.
