Get Faster Analytics Across Data Centers and Clouds

Got lots of data? Great.

Generate insights faster and gain the freedom to move to better storage solutions without making any changes to your analytics apps.

Alluxio is the leading open source platform for unifying data access and accelerating large-scale analytics and AI/ML workloads. It provides a unified namespace plus advanced caching to simplify and accelerate data access across distributed, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments. Alluxio provides up to a 10x performance boost for Presto and Spark-based analytics workloads. Together with the latest-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and Intel® Optane™ persistent memory, you can take analytics performance to new heights.

Accelerate Presto and Spark Workloads with Alluxio

Alluxio enables separation of compute from underlying storage while advanced caching and data tiering, accelerates large-scale analytics workloads in distributed on-prem, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments.

Bring Data Closer to COMPUTE

Data locality

Bring your data closer to compute.
Make your data local to compute workloads for Spark caching, Presto caching, Hive caching and more.

Data Accessibility

Make your data accessible.
No matter if it sits on-prem or in the cloud, HDFS or S3, make your files and objects accessible in many different ways.

Data On-Demand

Make your data as elastic as compute.
Effortlessly orchestrate your data for compute in any cloud, even if data is spread across multiple clouds.


Alluxio is in use by eight of the top ten largest Internet companies, including Facebook, Uber, TikTok, Walmart, Tencent, Comcast, and more. Alluxio’s free Community Edition and Alluxio Enterprise Edition are also used in production at thousands of the most data-intensive companies in finance, retail, communications, pharmaceuticals, and more.
