Powering Robotics Clouds with Alluxio

Strata San Jose *

The rise of robotics applications demands new cloud architectures that deliver high throughput and low latency. Bin Fan and Shaoshan Liu explain how PerceptIn designed and implemented a cloud architecture to support video streaming and online object recognition tasks and demonstrate how Alluxio supports these emerging cloud architectures.

Alluxio+Presto: An Architecture for Fast SQL in the Cloud

Bay Area Meetup *

Cloud object storage systems provide different semantics and performance implications compared to HDFS. Applications like Presto cannot benefit from the node-level locality or cross-job caching when reading from the cloud. Deploying Alluxio with Presto to access cloud solves these problems because data will be retrieved and cached in Alluxio instead of the underlying cloud or object storage repeatedly. Bin will present the architecture to combine Presto with Alluxio with use cases from major internet companies like JD.com and NetEase.com, and their lessons learned to operate this architecture at scale.

Getting Started with Alluxio Open Source

Alluxio Community Office Hour *

Join us for our first monthly office hour. This month we will focus on:
Installing Alluxio using Docker and Homebrew on your local Linux/Mac machine and accessing data from S3 and HDFS, Understanding Alluxio’s architecture in the data ecosystem, Open Session for discussion on any topics such as solving the separation of compute and storage problem, unifying multiple storage systems, and more.

Achieving Separation of Compute and Storage in a Cloud World

Alluxio Webinar *

In this webinar, we will discuss:
Why leading enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud architectures with compute and storage disaggregated, The new challenges that this new paradigm introduces, An introduction to Alluxio and the unified data solution it provides for hybrid environments

Two Sigma Open Source Meetup

New York Meetup *

TSOS meetups focus on the open source projects that Two Sigma cares most about, from projects we generated in-house then open sourced to large external open source projects that we depend on to do our work. This time, Wenbo Zhao (Two Sigma) and Bin Fan (Alluxio) will be presenting on how Two Sigma uses Alluxio to make data-intensive compute independent of the storage beneath.

Unify Data Analytics: Any Stack Any Cloud | Webinar | Big Data Demystified

Alluxio Webinar *

This webinar reviews: The observation and analysis of trends of separation of Storage and Compute in Big Data ecosystem; Why and how to build a new data access layer between compute and storage in this data stack; Alluxio open source: history, overview, design, and architecture; Production Use case with Spark, Presto, Tensorflow and etc; A demo of running Presto on Alluxio on S3

Efficient & Secure Big Data Analytics: Perspectives from Uber, Alibaba, & Alluxio

Seattle Meetup *

Over the past two decades, the Big Data stack has reshaped and evolved quickly with numerous innovations driven by the rise of many different open source projects and communities. In this meetup, speakers from Uber, Alibaba, and Alluxio will share best practices for addressing the challenges and opportunities in the developing data architectures using new and emerging open source building blocks. Topics include data format (ORC) optimization, storage security (HDFS), data format (Parquet) layers, and unified data access (Alluxio) layers.

Interactive Big Data Analytics with the Presto + Alluxio stack for the Cloud

Alluxio Webinar *

As data analytic needs have increased with the explosion of data, the importance of the speed of analytics and the interactivity of queries has increased dramatically.
In this webinar, we will introduce the Starburst Presto, Alluxio, and Cloud object store stack for building a highly-concurrent and low-latency analytics platform. This stack provides a strong solution to run fast SQL across multiple storage systems including HDFS, S3 and others in public cloud, hybrid cloud and multi cloud environments.

Unified Big Data Analytics: Any Stack, Any Cloud

This presentation focuses on how Alluxio enables the big data analytics stack to be cloud-native. Today’s cloud object storage systems provide more cost-effective and scalable storage solutions but also different semantics and performance implications compared to HDFS. Applications like Spark or Presto will not benefit from the node-level locality or cross-job caching when retrieving data from the cloud object storage. Deploying Alluxio to access cloud solves these problems because data will be retrieved and cached in Alluxio instead of the underlying cloud or object storage repeatedly.
