Past Events:

Beijing Meetup: Talks from Sogou, Qiniu, JD.com & Alluxio

Beijing Meetup *

The future is the era of data, and the abstraction of efficient management, storage, and access to data is undoubtedly the cornerstone of this era. Open source distributed virtual data system Alluxio is dedicated to providing simple and efficient data abstraction, convenient data sharing and high-speed I/O for big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, while keeping applications and data persistent and providing rich Storage system selection. After several years of development, Alluxio was developed from a prototype of a research project involving only a few Ph.D. students and researchers in the AMPLab at the University of California, Berkeley, to more than 800 code contributors (Alluxio 1.8 release data), and deployed in Tencent. Baidu, JD, Two-Sigma, Barclays Bank and other hundreds of Chinese and foreign industry leaders in the production environment, become an important part of the data platform and data infrastructure.

Unified Big Data Analytics – Any stack, Any Cloud

Boston Meetup *

This presentation focuses on how Alluxio helps the big data analytics stack to be cloud-native. The trending Cloud object storage systems provide more cost-effective and scalable storage solutions but also different semantics and performance implications compared to HDFS. Applications like Spark or Presto will not benefit from the node-level locality or cross-job caching when retrieving data from the cloud object storage. Deploying Alluxio to access cloud solves these problems because data will be retrieved and cached in Alluxio instead of the underlying cloud or object storage repeatedly.

Alluxio+Presto: An Architecture for Fast SQL in the Cloud

Bay Area Meetup *

Cloud object storage systems provide different semantics and performance implications compared to HDFS. Applications like Presto cannot benefit from the node-level locality or cross-job caching when reading from the cloud. Deploying Alluxio with Presto to access cloud solves these problems because data will be retrieved and cached in Alluxio instead of the underlying cloud or object storage repeatedly. Bin will present the architecture to combine Presto with Alluxio with use cases from major internet companies like JD.com and NetEase.com, and their lessons learned to operate this architecture at scale.

Introduction to Alluxio 2.0 Preview

Alluxio Tech Talk *

Alluxio 2.0 is the most ambitious platform upgrade since the inception of Alluxio with greatly expanded capabilities to empower users to run analytics and AI workloads on private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures leveraging valuable data wherever it might be stored. This preview release, now available for download, includes many advancements that will allow users to push the limits of their data-workloads in the cloud.

Two Sigma Open Source Meetup

New York Meetup *

TSOS meetups focus on the open source projects that Two Sigma cares most about, from projects we generated in-house then open sourced to large external open source projects that we depend on to do our work. This time, Wenbo Zhao (Two Sigma) and Bin Fan (Alluxio) will be presenting on how Two Sigma uses Alluxio to make data-intensive compute independent of the storage beneath.

Unify Data Analytics: Any Stack Any Cloud | Webinar | Big Data Demystified

Alluxio Tech Talk *

This webinar reviews: The observation and analysis of trends of separation of Storage and Compute in Big Data ecosystem; Why and how to build a new data access layer between compute and storage in this data stack; Alluxio open source: history, overview, design, and architecture; Production Use case with Spark, Presto, Tensorflow and etc; A demo of running Presto on Alluxio on S3
