Alluxio at Beijing Meetup

Haoyuan Li presents at Beijing Meetup on open source data orchestration and the value of leveraging Alluxio with rising trends driving the need for a new architecture. Four big trends driving this need: Separation of compute & storage, hybrid-multi cloud environments, rise of object store and self-service data across the enterprise.

Tech Talk: Interactive Analytics with the Starburst Presto + Alluxio stack for the Cloud

As data analytic needs have increased with the explosion of data, the importance of the speed of analytics and the interactivity of queries has increased dramatically. 

In this tech talk, we will introduce the Starburst Presto, Alluxio, and cloud object store stack for building a highly-concurrent and low-latency analytics platform. This stack provides a strong solution to run fast SQL across multiple storage systems including HDFS, S3, and others in public cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments.

Tech Talk: Accelerate and Scale Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning Pipelines with Disaggregated Compute and Storage

Enterprises are increasingly looking towards object stores to power their big data & machine learning workloads in a cost-effective way. The combination of SwiftStack and Alluxio together, enables users to seamlessly move towards a disaggregated architecture. Swiftstack provides a massively parallel cloud object storage and multi-cloud data management system. Alluxio is a data orchestration layer, which sits between compute frameworks and storage systems and enables big data workloads to be deployed directly on SwiftStack. Alluxio provides data locality, accessibility and elasticity via its core innovations. With the Alluxio and Swiftstack solution, Spark, Presto, Tensorflow and Hive and other compute workloads can benefit from 10X performance improvement and dramatically lower costs. In this tech talk, we will provide a brief overview of the Alluxio and SwiftStack solution as well as the key use cases it enables.
