Why Data Orchestration?

Large-scale analytics and AI/ML applications require efficient data access, with data increasingly distributed across multiple data stores in private data centers and clouds.

This paper delves further into what’s driving the need for--and what problems are solved with—an Alluxio data orchestration layer as part of a modern data platform.
