Lenovo is the world’s largest personal computer vendor and one of the world’s largest smartphone vendors. The company has invested extensively in global information technology infrastructure, including ten data centers worldwide collecting petabytes of smartphone data. Analyzing data located in multiple data centers world-wide is critical for Lenovo to understand and improve the usability and reliability of their products.
Lenovo is an Alluxio customer with a common problem and use case in the world of data analytics. They have petabytes of data in multiple data centers in different geographic locations. Analyzing it requires an ETL process to get all of the data in the right place. This is both slow, because data has to be transferred across the network, and costly because multiple copies of the data need to be stored. Freshness and quality of the data can also suffer as the data is also potentially out of date and incomplete because regulatory issues prevent certain data from being transferred.
