Recap: AWS Summit New York

Alluxio is a proud sponsor and exhibitor at the AWS Summit in New York. If you weren’t able to attend, here are the highlights!

Great energy at the Alluxio booth!

What’s AWS Summit? It’s a one day conference bringing together the cloud computing community to engage on topics ranging from Machine Learning, Hybrid Cloud, Big Data & Analytics, and more.

What we learned

  • Enterprises are advancing along the cloud journey, and data access has become a prevalent challenge, because enterprises adopting hybrid cloud are not able to efficiently access data on-premise and in their public cloud.
  • Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels talks about AWS Outposts in his keynote. Amazon’s investment in Outposts is another indication of the rise of hybrid cloud.
  • Cloud applications are heavily weighed towards data driven applications such as analytics and machine learning applications.


We were thrilled to have announced the release of Alluxio 2.0 at the Summit! Alluxio 2.0 is the largest release since inception with over 900 PRs as well as many new features to continue building on to our data orchestration approach for the cloud.
