Unified Data API for Distributed Cloud Analytics and AI

This presentation focuses on how Alluxio helps the big data analytics stack to be cloud-native. The trending 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.

ML-Based SQL Query Resource Usage Prediction

With the advent of the Big Data era, it is usually computationally expensive to calculate the resource usages of a SQL query. Can we estimate the resource usages of SQL queries more efficiently without any computation in a SQL engine kernel? In this session, Chunxu and Beinan would like to introduce how Twitter’s data platform leverages a machine learning-based approach in Presto and BigQuery to estimate query utilization with 90%+ accuracy.

The practice of Presto & Alluxio in E-commerce big data platform

JD.com is one of the largest e-commerce corporations. In big data platform of JD.com, there are tens of thousands of nodes and tens of petabytes off-line data which require millions of spark and MapReduce jobs to process everyday. As the main query engine, thousands of machines work as Presto nodes and Presto plays an import role in the field of In-place analysis and BI tools. Meanwhile, Alluxio is deployed to improve the performance of Presto. The practice of Presto & Alluxio in JD.com benefits a lot of engineers and analysts.

Accelerate and Scale Big Data Analytics with Alluxio and Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory

International Data Corporation (IDC) reported that the global datasphere will grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 zettabytes by 20251. This trend becomes more and more complicated with the variety and velocity of data growth, and it continuously changes the ways data is collected, stored, processed, and analyzed. New analytics solutions, including machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence (AI), and new architectures and tools are being developed to extract and deliver value from the huge datasphere.

Running Presto with Alluxio on Amazon EMR

Many organizations are leveraging EMR to run big data analytics on public cloud. However, reading and writing data to S3 directly can result in slow and inconsistent performance. Alluxio is a data orchestration layer for the cloud, and in this use case it caches data for S3, ensuring high and predictable performance as well as reduced network traffic.
