Introducing what’s new in Alluxio 2.5


We are thrilled to announce the release of Alluxio 2.5!

Alluxio 2.5 focuses on improving interface support to broaden the set of data driven applications which can benefit from data orchestration. The POSIX and S3 client interfaces have greatly improved in performance and functionality as a result of the widespread usage and demand from AI/ML workloads and system administration needs. Alluxio is rapidly evolving to meet the needs of enterprises that are deploying it as a key component of their AI/ML stacks.

At the same time, Alluxio continues to integrate with the latest cloud and cluster orchestration technologies. In 2.5, Alluxio has new connectors for Google Cloud Storage and Azure Data Lake Storage Gen 2 as well as better operability functionality for Kubernetes environments.

In this Office Hour, we will go over:

  • S3 Northbound API
  • ADLS Gen 2 Connector
  • GCSv2 Connector
