Accelerating Data Computation on Ceph Objects using Alluxio

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

In this talk, we will present how using Alluxio computation and storage ecosystems can better interact benefiting of the “bringing the data close to the code” approach. Moving away from the complete disaggregation of computation and storage, data locality can enhance the computation performance.

StorageQuery: federated querying on object stores, powered by Alluxio and Presto

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

Over the last few years, organizations have worked towards the separation of storage and compute for a number of benefits in the areas of cost, data duplication and data latency. Cloud resolves most of these issues but comes to the expense of needing a way to query data on remote storages. Alluxio and Presto are a powerful combination to address the compute problem, which is part of the strategy used by Simbiose Ventures to create a product called StorageQuery – A platform to query files in cloud storages with SQL.

Reducing large S3 API costs using Alluxio at Datasapiens

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

In this talk, we will describe how we have solved an issue with large S3 API costs incurred by Presto under several usage concurrency levels by implementing Alluxio as a data orchestration layer between S3 and Presto. Also, we will show the results of an experiment with estimating the per-query S3 API costs using the TPC-DS dataset.

How to Build a new Under Filesystem in Alluxio: Apache Ozone as an Example

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

In Alluxio, an Under File System is the plugin to connect to any file systems or object stores, so users can mount different storages like AWS S3 or HDFS into Alluxio namespace. This under filesystem is designed to be modular, in order to enable users to easily extend this framework with their own Under File System implementation and connect to a new or customized storage system.

Ultra Fast Deep Learning in Hybrid Cloud Using Intel Analytics Zoo & Alluxio

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

Today, many people run deep learning applications with training data from separate storage such as object storage or remote data centers. This presentation will demo the Intel Analytics Zoo + Alluxio stack, an architecture that enables high performance while keeping cost and resource efficiency balanced without network being I/O bottlenecked.

How to Develop and Operate Cloud-Native Data Platforms and Applications

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

This talk will overview two projects at Electronic Arts (EA) that address the mismatch by data orchestration: One project automatically generates configurations for all components in a large monitoring system, which reduces the daily average number of alerts from ~1000 to ~20. The other project introduces Alluxio for caching and unifying address space across ETL and analytics workloads, which substantially simplifies architecture, improves performance, and reduces ops overheads.

Open source data orchestration for a disaggregated analytics stack

Bangalore Presto Meetup *

The rise of compute intensive workloads and the adoption of the cloud has driven organizations to adopt a decoupled architecture for modern workloads – one in which compute scales independently from storage. While this enables scaling elasticity, it introduces new problems – how do you co-locate data with compute, how do you unify data across multiple remote clouds, how do you keep storage and I/O service costs down and many more.

Speeding Up I/O for Machine Learning

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

This talk will guide the audience on how Alluxio can greatly simplify the data preparation phase in with remote and possibly multiple data sources. We will share the lessons and benchmark from Bill Zhao an engineer led in Apple when building a Machine Learning platform using Tensorflow, NFS, DC/OS and Alluxio.
