This whitepaper consists of two portions. The first is a high level overview of the advantages of using Alluxio as a core technology with on-demand clusters. The second portion is intended for engineers; it provides a detailed step-by-step guide to deploying an on-demand cluster with Alluxio and instructions for running a sample workload on the cluster. At the end of the paper you will have a good understanding of how to deploy this architecture and the value Alluxio brings to the stack.
