Data platforms span multiple clusters, regions and clouds to meet the business needs for agility, cost effectiveness, and efficiency. Organizations building data platforms for structured and unstructured data have standardized on separation of storage and compute to remain flexible while avoiding vendor lock-in. Data orchestration has emerged as the foundation of such a data platform for multiple use cases all the way from data ingestion to transformations to analytics and AI.
In this keynote from Haoyuan Li, founder and CEO of Alluxio, we will showcase how organizations have built data platforms based on data orchestration. The need to simplify data management and acceleration across different business personas has given rise to data orchestration as a requisite piece of the modern data platform. In addition, we will outline typical journeys for realizing a hybrid and multi-cloud strategy.
Haoyuan (H.Y.) Li is the Founder and CEO of Alluxio. He graduated with a Computer Science Ph.D. from the AMPLab at UC Berkeley. At the AMPLab, he co-created and led Alluxio (formerly Tachyon), an open source virtual distributed file system. Before UC Berkeley, he got a M.S. from Cornell University and a B.S. from Peking University, all in Computer Science.
