What’s New in Alluxio 2.6: Better Performance for AI/ML Workloads plus Increased Operating Metrics Visibility

Alluxio 2.6 significantly improves the performance of data-intensive AI/ML workloads across any storage, and also improves the general maintainability and visibility of Alluxio clusters, especially for large-scale deployments. We have taken the feedback and contributions from the community and introduced features which simplify deployment, introduce new data management capabilities, optimize performance, and provide enhanced visibility into system behavior.

Alluxio Data Orchestration for Machine Learning

Alluxio’s capabilities as a Data Orchestration framework have encouraged users to onboard more of their data-driven applications to an Alluxio powered data access layer. Driven by strong interests from our open-source community, the core team of Alluxio started to re-design an efficient and transparent way for users to leverage data orchestration through the POSIX interface.
