What’s new in Alluxio 1.1 Release

Alluxio 1.1 release includes many great features and improvements from the community. Alluxio would not be what it is today without the growing open source community, and we would like to thank everyone involved in this project.
This release brings many new features and improvements, and in this post, we will highlight a few of the developments: performance improvements, access control features, and usability and integration improvements.

Introducing Alluxio Open Source Project Governance

We’re excited to announce that the Alluxio open source project is adopting the Benevolent Dictator For Life (BDFL) model. The day-to-day management of the project will be carried out by the Project Management Committee (PMC). Within the PMC, there are Maintainers, who are responsible for upholding the quality of the code in their respective components.
With the adoption of a project management mechanism, we believe it will further accelerate the project growth and enable contributors around the world to easily collaborate to bring exciting new features and improvements to Alluxio.

Founder Blog | Alluxio, formerly Tachyon, is Entering a New Era with 1.0 release

Today, we are very excited to announce the 1.0 release of Alluxio, the world’s first memory-centric virtual distributed storage system, which unifies data access and bridges computation frameworks and underlying storage systems. Applications only need to connect with Alluxio to access data stored in any underlying storage systems. Additionally, Alluxio’s memory-centric architecture enables data access orders of magnitude faster than existing solutions.
