ALLUXIO COMMUNITY OFFICE HOUR

Alluxio 2.0 release was the biggest update since the birth of the project “Tachyon” from UC Berkley’s AmpLab. Gathering feedback from our Open Source Community and enterprise users, Alluxio 2.0 expands the system in three major directions including improving the operability of the system, having more advanced data management, as well as re-architecting the system to be able to scale to 1 billion + file. The system is now cloud native on AWS, Google Cloud, and allow users to enable native deployment with K8s. The new advanced data management enables data migration and replication from diff storage systems. 

In this office hour, we introduce what’s new in the Alluxio 2 release, and dive deeper in each major direction the system has expanded on.

  • Introduction and motivation of focus areas of Alluxio 2
  • Overview of cloud native deployment methods
  • New data management features
  • System scalability improvements
