Tech Talk: Achieving Separation of Compute and Storage in a Cloud World

Tags: , ,

The rise of compute intensive workloads and the adoption of the cloud has driven organizations to adopt a decoupled architecture for modern workloads - one in which compute scales independently from storage. While this enables scaling elasticity, it introduces new problems - how do you co-locate data with compute, how do you unify data across multiple remote clouds, how do you keep storage and I/O service costs down and many more.  

Enter Alluxio, a virtual unified file system, which sits between compute and storage that allows you to realize the benefits of a  hybrid cloud architecture with the same performance and lower costs.
