welcome to the alluxio community

Founder Haoyuan Li was a Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley AMPLab when he built the beginnings of Alluxio (originally called Tachyon) with the mission to orchestrate data for all data driven applications. Today, in addition to running critical workloads for thousands of users across the world, Alluxio has a vibrant community that has made countless contributions to the open source project.

Welcome to Alluxio Community! We would invite you to read about, try out, use, and contribute to Alluxio, as well as to share your experience, feedback, suggestions and ideas!
