Alluxio: Unifying APIs, Accelerating ML, & Enabling Cloud Architectures

Bay Area Meetup *

Using intermediate APIs means developers can learn just one framework and still access features offered by different technologies. It means writing job logic only once and being able to test it easily on a new underlying service with no effort. Not only is modularity a win for users but it means creators of execution frameworks and storage systems can focus on performance and capability without having to worry about API maintenance.

1st Beijing Alluxio (Formerly Tachyon) Meetup

Beijing Meetup *

In the active community development of the past year, Alluxio has greatly improved its read and write performance, scalability and user experience. In addition, in terms of functionality, Alluxio has added a number of new features, such as scalable tiered storage, transparent UFS data reading and writing, unified namespaces, and more. These features bring more value to Alluxio users and more efficient and convenient cluster storage management.

Past, Present and Future of Alluxio [Chinese]

Nanjing Big Data Meetup *

The Alluxio project has greatly improved system performance, Scalability and user experience, and added a series of new features, including scalable tiered storage, transparent UFS data reading and writing, unified namespaces, and more. Easy to use with Alluxio. At the same time, the Alluxio ecosystem has expanded to support different storage systems and computing frameworks. Alluxio now supports a variety of storage systems, including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Gluster, Ceph, HDFS, NFS and OpenStack Swift, as well as big data processing frameworks such as Spark, MapReduce, Flink and more. These integrations allow Alluxio to manage and help with more and more complex data.

Alluxio (formerly Tachyon): New Features and Demos

Bay Area Meetup *

Big data ecosystem is moving with massive energy, customers are from healthcare, retail, transportation, and other fields are benefiting significantly from the business insights derived. As the data growth continues, storage technologies and distributed memory systems are becoming even more important for real time decision making and insight discovery. Intel is excited to work with developer communities on Alluxio and to optimize Alluxio solutions on Intel platform. In this talk, Ziya will discuss Intel’s optimization work in the area, open source contribution and industry use cases.

Alluxio: Solving the Framework-Storage Gap in Big Data

DSI Conference San Mateo *

In this talk, Haoyuan Li, co-creator of Tachyon (and a founding committer of Spark) and CEO of Tachyon Nexus will explain how the next wave of innovation in storage will be driven by separating the functional layer from the persistent storage layer, and how memory-centric architecture through Tachyon is making this possible. Li will describe the future of distributed file storage and highlight how Tachyon supports specific use cases.

Alluxio (formerly Tachyon): Open Source Memory Speed Virtual Distributed Storage System

Data by the Bay San Francisco *

The goal is to make Alluxio accessible to an even wider set of users through a focus on security, new language bindings, and further increased stability. In addition, the team is working on new APIs to allow applications to access data more efficiently and manage data across different under storage systems.

Data Driven #46 (a FirstMark Event)

Data Driven NYC *

Check out our new blog post: “Internet of Things: Are We There Yet? (The 2016 IoT Landscape)”: The Internet of Things is all about data!

Unified Namespace and Tiered Storage in Alluxio

Strata+Hadoop World San Jose *

Calvin Jia and Jiri Simsa explain how the current Alluxio tiered storage can be easily configured to use memory, SSDs, and hard drives in different tiers. Alluxio users and administrators do not have to manually migrate the data because data in Alluxio is managed transparently between all the configured tiers, similar to the way the CPU manages L1, L2, and lower-level caches. Meanwhile, Alluxio also provides users fine-grained control of manipulating data to plug in their own data-management strategies; users can also pin files in Alluxio to a specific storage or specify a TTL to files. Calvin and Jiri also describe the interface for managing heterogeneous data sources into the Alluxio namespace, which takes advantage of Alluxio’s ability to interoperate with different underlying storage systems such as HDFS, S3, GlusterFS, or Swift.
