Accelerating Analytical Workloads for Public & Hybrid Clouds

New York Meetup *

In this meetup, Dipti and HY will present a new approach to hybrid analytical workloads using Alluxio, an open source data orchestration layer, which sits between compute and storage layer. Applications like Apache Spark or TensorFlow can then seamlessly access multiple disparate data sources with consistent performance using data locality and abstraction that the data orchestration tier brings.

Running Spark & Alluxio in Kubernetes

The data orchestration layer bridging the gap between data locality with improved performance and data accessibility for analytics workloads in Kubernetes, and enables portability across storage providers.
An overview of Alluxio and the cloud use case with Spark in Kubernetes. Learn how to set up Alluxio and Spark to run in Kubernetes.

Building Fast SQL Analytics with Presto, Alluxio, and S3

Alluxio Community Office Hour *

Learn how to set up Presto with Alluxio such that Presto jobs can seamlessly read from and write to S3.
Compare the performance between Presto on S3 with Presto and Alluxio on S3.

Hybrid Environments for Data Analytics is a Possibility

As the data ecosystem becomes massively complex and more and more disaggregated, data analysts and end users have trouble adapting and working with hybrid environments. The proliferation of compute applications along with storage mediums leads to a hybrid model that we are just not accustomed to.
With this disaggregated system data engineers now come across a multitude of problems that they must overcome in order to get meaningful insights.

[Talk 2] Using In-Memory technology for real time analytics. With Andy Rivenes is a Product Manager at Oracle for Database In-Memory.
[Talk 3] Feeding data to the Kubernetes beast: bringing data locality to your containerized big data workloads. With Bin Fan, founding engineer of Alluxio, Inc. and PMC member of Alluxio open source project.

Running Spark & Alluxio in Kubernetes

Alluxio Community Office Hour *

The latest advances in container orchestration by Kubernetes bring cost savings and flexibility to compute workloads in public or hybrid cloud environments. On the other hand, it introduces new challenges such as how to move data to compute efficiently, how to unify data across multiple or remote clouds, how to co-locate data with compute and many more. Alluxio approaches these problems in a new way. It helps elastic compute workloads realize the true benefits of the cloud, while bringing data locality and data accessibility to workloads orchestrated by Kubernetes

Accelerate Spark workloads on S3

Alluxio Webinar *

Register for this webinar to learn how to run EMR Spark on Alluxio as a distributed file system cache for S3.
