Using Alluxio (formerly Tachyon) to Speed Up Big Data Analytics [Chinese]

Strata Data Conference Beijing *

An overview of Alluxio basics, demonstrating how Alluxio works and how to use this system to enable distributed computation engines (like Spark or MapReduce) to share data at memory speed. Using hands-on exercises, Yupeng and Rong walk you through deploying and running Alluxio, mounting external storage systems (like S3) into Alluxio’s namespace, interacting Alluxio with built-in commands and WebUI, and building simple big data applications using common computation frameworks (e.g., Apache Spark and Hadoop MapReduce) to read from and write to Alluxio.

Accelerating Spark Workloads in an Apache Mesos Environment with Alluxio

MesosCon North America 2017 *

Using Alluxio, an open-source memory speed virtual distributed storage system, deployed on Mesos enables connecting any compute framework, such as Apache Spark, to storage systems via a unified namespace. Alluxio enables applications to interact with any data at memory speed. Alluxio can eliminate the pains of ETL and data duplication, and enable new workloads across all data. Adit will discuss the architecture of Mesos, Spark and Alluxio to achieve an optimal architecture for enterprises.

Guardant Health: Fast, scalable, data processing with Alluxio, Mesos, and Minio

Alluxio and Mesos Joint Meetup *

Speed is usually a key factor when analyzing large amounts of data. Alluxio enables analytics applications, such as Apache Spark, to retrieve stored data at memory speeds. DC/OS makes it easy to deploy distributed programs (such as Alluxio and Spark) and containers across large clusters.
In this talk, we will first discuss the development of the DC/OS Alluxio package, which deploys Alluxio on top of DC/OS, and then then demo the deployment a complete analytics stack, both with and without Alluxio, in order to see the benefits Alluxio provides.

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.

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

Alluxio Tech Talk *

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

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

Alluxio Tech Talk *

In this tech talk, 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.

Achieving 10x acceleration of Spark and Hive Jobs on AWS S3 with Alluxio Tiered Storage

The data engineering team at Bazaarvoice, a software-as-a-service digital marketing company based in Austin, Texas, must handle data at massive Internet-scale to serve its customers. Facing challenges with scaling their storage capacity up and provisioning hardware, they turned to Alluxio’s tiered storage system and saw 10x acceleration of their Spark and Hive jobs running on AWS S3.

In this whitepaper you’ll learn:

  • How to build a big data analytics platform on AWS that includes technologies like Hive, Spark, Kafka, Storm, Cassandra, and more
  • How to setup a Hive metastore using a storage tier for hot tables
  • How to leverage tiered storage for maximized read performance
