What’s New in Alluxio 2.3

Community Online Office Hour *

Alluxio 2.3 was just released at the end of June 2020. Calvin and Bin will go over the new features and integrations available and share learnings from the community. Any questions about the release and on-going community feature development are welcome.

Ultra Fast Deep Learning in Hybrid Cloud Using Intel Analytics Zoo & Alluxio

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

Today, many people run deep learning applications with training data from separate storage such as object storage or remote data centers. This presentation will demo the Intel Analytics Zoo + Alluxio stack, an architecture that enables high performance while keeping cost and resource efficiency balanced without network being I/O bottlenecked.

Optimizing Query Performance by Decoupling Presto and Hive Data Warehouse

Ideally, Presto would access data independently from how the data was originally stored or managed. Alluxio, as a data orchestration layer provides the physical data independence, for Presto to interact with the data more efficiently. In addition to caching for IO acceleration, Alluxio also provides a catalog service to abstract the metadata in the Hive Metastore, and transformations to expose the data in compute-optimized way. In this talk, we describe some of the challenges of using Presto with Hive, and introduce Alluxio data orchestration for solving those challenges.

Serving Structured Data in Alluxio: Concept

This article introduces Structured Data Management available in the latest Alluxio 2.2.0 release, a new effort to provide further benefits to SQL and structured data workloads using Alluxio.

Enabling Ultra-fast Presto in the Cloud with Alluxio

This talk describes a stack of open-source projects to serve high-concurrent and low-latency SQL queries using Presto with Alluxio on big data in the cloud. Deploying Alluxio as a data orchestration layer to access cloud storage object storage (e.g., AWS S3), this architecture greatly enhances the data locality of Presto with distributed and cross-query caching, thus avoids reading the same data repeatedly from the cloud storage.
