Strata+Hadoop World 2016 – Baidu deployed Alluxio to accelerate its big data analytics workload. Bin Fan and Haojun Wang explain why Baidu chose Alluxio, as well as the details of how they achieved a 30x speedup with Alluxio in their production environment with hundreds of machines. Based on the success of the big data analytics engine, Baidu is currently expanding the Alluxio and Spark infrastructure to accelerate other applications, such as machine learning.
