Accelerating and Scaling Big Data Analytics with Alluxio and Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory

Testing Methodology Decision support workload is a typical workload that models multiple aspects of a decision support system, including queries and data maintenance. We selected 54 queries that represent a typical SQL query behavior in Hadoop for the test.  The tests include three different configurations: Without Alluxio, Alluxio on PMem and Alluxio on DRAM. The … Continued

Speeding Big Data Analytics on the Cloud with In-Memory Data Accelerator

Discontinuity in big data infrastructure drives storage disaggregation, especially in companies experiencing dramatic data growth after pivoting to AI and analytics. This data growth challenge makes disaggregating storage from compute attractive because the company can scale their storage capacity to match their data growth, independent of compute. This decoupled mode allows the separation of compute and storage, enabling users to rightsize hardware for each layer. Users can buy high-end CPU and memory configurations for the compute nodes, and storage nodes can be optimized for capacity.
