What’s new in Alluxio 2: from seamless operations to structured data management

Community Online Office Hour *

Alluxio 2.0 expands the system in three major directions including improving the operability of the system, having more advanced data management, as well as re-architecting the system to be able to scale to 1 billion + file. The system is now cloud native on AWS, Google Cloud, and allow users to enable native deployment with K8s. The new advanced data management enables data migration and replication from diff storage systems.

CNCF Member Webinar: Improving Data Locality for Analytics Jobs on Kubernetes Using Alluxio

CNCF Webinar *

In the on-prem days, one key performance optimization for Apache Hadoop or Apache Spark workloads is to run tasks on nodes with local HDFS data. However, while adoption of the Cloud & Kubernetes makes scaling compute workloads exceptionally easy, HDFS is often not an option. Effectively accessing data from cloud-native storage services like AWS S3 or even on-premises HDFS becomes harder as data locality is lost.

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.

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.

Improving Data Locality for Spark Jobs on Kubernetes Using Alluxio

Alluxio Community Office Hour *

One important performance optimization in Apache Spark is to schedule tasks on nodes with HDFS data nodes locally serving the task input data. However, more users are running Apache Spark natively on Kubernetes where HDFS is not an option. This office hour describes the concept and dataflow with respect to using the stack of Spark/Alluxio in Kubernetes with enhanced data locality even the storage service is outside or remote.

Enabling Presto in the Cloud with Alluxio

Presto Summit New York *

The Presto Summit continues to bring together the best developers, engineers, data scientists, and executives from the Presto community to share how some of the largest and most innovative companies are using this technology to power their analytics platforms.
