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.

From limited Hadoop compute capacity to increased data scientist efficiency

Alluxio Tech Talk *

This tech talk will share approaches to burst data to the cloud along with
how Alluxio can enable “zero-copy” bursting of Spark workloads to cloud data services like EMR and Dataproc. Learn how DBS bank uses Alluxio to solve for limited on-prem compute capacity.

Accelerating Spark with Kubernetes

Alluxio Tech Talk *

This tech talk gives a quick overview of Alluxio and the use cases it powers for Spark/Presto in Kubernetes. We also show you how to set up Alluxio and Spark/Presto to run in Kubernetes.
