Kubernetes is widely used across enterprises to orchestrate computation. And while Kubernetes helps improve flexibility and portability for computation in public/hybrid cloud environments across infrastructure providers, running data-intensive workloads can be challenging.
When it comes to efficiently moving data closer to Spark or Presto frameworks, co-locating data with these frameworks and accessing data from multiple or remote clouds is hard to do. That’s where Alluxio, an open source data orchestration platform, can help.
Alluxio enables data locality with your Spark and Presto workloads for faster performance and better data accessibility in Kubernetes. It also provides portability across storage providers.
This tech talk gives a quick overview of Alluxio and the use cases it powers for Spark/Presto in Kubernetes. We’ll show you how to set up Alluxio and Spark/Presto to run in Kubernetes as well.
