Alluxio (Formerly Tachyon): The Journey thus Far and the Road Ahead

Vault Linux Storage and Filesystems Conference *

Haoyuan Li explores Alluxio’s goal of making its product accessible to an even wider set of users, through a focus on security, new language bindings, and further increased stability. Haoyuan also covers some new APIs Alluxio is working on to allow applications to access data more efficiently and manage data across different under storage systems.

Fighting Cybercrime: A Joint Task Force of Real-Time Data and Human Analytics

Spark Summit East *

In this presentation, William Callaghan will focus on the challenges faced and lessons learned in building a human-in-the loop cyber threat analytics pipeline. They will discuss the topic of analytics in cybersecurity and highlight the use of technologies such as Spark Streaming/SQL, Cassandra, Kafka and Alluxio in creating an analytics architecture with missions-critical response times.

Effective Spark With Alluxio

Spark Summit East *

In this talk, we briefly introduce Alluxio, present several ways how Alluxio can help Spark be more effective, show benchmark results with Spark RDDs and DataFrames, and describe production deployments both Alluxio and Spark working together. In the meantime, we will provide live demos for some of the use cases.

Crash-Proofing Smartphones with Alluxio

Bay Area Meetup *

Enterprises typically store large amounts of data in existing storage systems, which are often separate from big data analytics systems. Therefore, importing petabytes of data into a big data analytics system takes a long time with large overheads and high costs. Even worse, transferring large amounts of data results in data silos and unnecessary duplication, which creates serious data management problems.

How Alluxio (formerly Tachyon) brings a 300x performance improvement to Qunar’s streaming processing

Strata+Hadoop World Singapore *

Alluxio is the first memory-speed virtual distributed storage system in the world. It unifies the interface between the various computing frameworks and under storages. Data access can be several magnitude faster because of Alluxio’s memory-centric architecture. In addition, Alluxio’s tiered storage, unified namespace, flexible file API, web UI, and command-line tools increase the usability in different application scenarios.
Qunar has been running Alluxio in production for over a year. Lei Xu explores how stream processing on Alluxio has led to a 16x performance improvement on average and 300x improvement at service peak time on workloads at Qunar.

Modern Software Architectures and Data Pipelines

Scalæ By The Bay San Francisco *

Throughout our four-year history, Scala and Scale By the Bay is leading the way on evangelizing and understansing modern software architectures. We have the best set of them here, including Akka, Kafka, Spark, Finagle, Lagom, and so on. How do they come together in a SMACK / MIND Stack? What are the best practices to follow and pitfalls to avoid? This panels of experienced practitioners will discuss and illuminate it all.
