This is a casual online video chat where all attendees are welcome to bring your own questions. Our host Bin will have suggested topics, such as the top challenges around leveraging popular compute frameworks including Presto and Spark to access remote data, and the latest developments in Alluxio open source such as Alluxio Catalog Services.

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.
In this office hour, we demonstrate how a “zero-copy burst” solution helps to speed up Spark and Presto queries in the public cloud while eliminating the process of manually copying and synchronizing data from the on-premise data lake to cloud storage. This approach allows compute frameworks to decouple from on-premise data sources and scale efficiently by leveraging Alluxio and public cloud resources such as AWS.
Join us for this tech talk where we will show you how Alluxio can help burst your private computing environment to Google Cloud, minimizing costs and I/O overhead. Alluxio coupled with Google’s open source data and analytics processing engine, Dataproc, enables zero-copy burst for faster query performance in the cloud so you can take advantage of resources that are not local to your data, without the need for managing the copying or syncing of that data.
For many latency-sensitive SQL workloads, Presto is often bound by retrieving distant data. In this talk, Rohit Jain, James Sun from Facebook and Bin Fan from Alluxio will introduce their teams’ collaboration on adding a local on-SSD Alluxio cache inside Presto workers at Facebook to improve queries with unsatisfied latency.
In this talk, we will show you how to leverage any public cloud (AWS, Google Cloud Platform, or Microsoft Azure) to scale analytics workloads directly on on-prem data without copying and synchronizing the data into the cloud.
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.
It is critical for Alluxio to be able to store and serve the metadata of all files and directories from all mounted external storage both at scale and at speed. This talk shares our design, implementation, and optimization of Alluxio metadata service (master node) to address the scalability challenges.
Alluxio, as a data orchestration layer provides the physical data independence, for Presto to interact with the data more efficiently. In addition to caching for IO acceleration, Alluxio also provides a catalog service to abstract the metadata in the Hive Metastore, and transformations to expose the data in compute-optimized way. In this talk, we describe some of the challenges of using Presto with Hive, and introduce Alluxio data orchestration for solving those challenges.
