Alluxio is an open-source data orchestration system widely used to speed up data-intensive workloads in the cloud. Alluxio v2.0 introduced Replicated Async Write to allow users to complete writes to Alluxio file system and return quickly with high application performance, while still providing users with peace of mind that data will be persisted to the chosen under storage like S3 in the background.
Joint meetup in Hangzhou discusses: An introduction to new features of big data storage system Alluxio and optimization of cache performance, Practice & exploration of Spark & Alluxio, and the Interactive query system Impala.
Welcome to the first event of the Cloud, Data, & Orchestration Austin Meetup! This meetup will feature two talks and an opportunity to engage with other data engineers, developers, and Alluxio users. Thanks to Bazaarvoice for hosting!
The Alluxio-Presto sandbox is a docker application featuring installations of MySQL, Hadoop, Hive, Presto, and Alluxio. The sandbox lets you easily dive into an interactive environment where you can explore Alluxio, run queries with Presto, and see the performance benefits of using Alluxio in a big data software stack.
While single node caching may be sufficient for some users, for many it does not improve the performance meaningfully. By definition, a single node cache is limited to what that single node has accessed. Also, most frameworks with a single node cache typically do not leverage the SSD or HDD in the node. Alluxio is … Continued
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.
In this talk, we will focus on Alluxio design, its architecture, data flow and metadata flow. We will dive into the choices in its design space and share the experiences when implementing features like data tiering, storage options and cache eviction policies. We will also share our lessons in design, implementation and operation when working to build an open source distributed storage systems with 900 contributors for 5+ years.
This technical salon will focus on big data, storage, database and Alluxio application practice, and invite Tencent technical experts and industry technical experts to share the basic principles of Alluxio system, big data system architecture, database application operation and maintenance, AI computer. Themes such as visual technology and landing practice bring rich practical content and experience exchange.
Alluxio provides a distributed data access layer for applications like Spark or Presto to access different underlying file system (or UFS) through a single API in a unified file system namespace. If users only interact with the files in the UFS through Alluxio, since Alluxio has knowledge of any changes the client makes to the UFS, it will keep Alluxio namespace in sync with the UFS namespace.
