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.

In this office hour, we will go over an introduction and motivation of Alluxio Structured Data Management, an overview of the different services in Alluxio 2.1, and a demo using Alluxio Structured Data Management with Presto.
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.
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.
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.
Learn how to set up Google Cloud Dataproc with Alluxio so jobs can seamlessly read from and write to Cloud Storage. See how to run Dataproc Spark against a remote HDFS cluster.
This office hour shares a demo and compares two approaches, caching data directly in-memory into the Spark JVM versus storing data off-heap via an in-memory storage service like Alluxio
Running Spark with Alluxio is a popular stack particularly for hybrid environments. In this session, Dipti will briefly introduce Alluxio, share the top 10 tips for performance tuning for real-world workloads, and demo Alluxio with Spark.
