Fluid: When Alluxio Meets Kubernetes

Tags: , , ,

Nowadays, cloud native environments have attracted lots of data-intensive applications deployed and ran on them, due to the efficient-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain advantages provided by cloud native platforms and frameworks such as Docker, Kubernetes. However, cloud native frameworks does not provide the data abstraction support to the applications natively. Therefore, we build Fluid project, which co-orchestrate data and containers together. We use Alluxio as the cache runtime inside Fluid to warm up hot data. In this report, we will introduce the design and effects of the Fluid project.
