MesosCon Europe 2017 – Gene Pang discusses the architecture of Mesos, Spark and Alluxio to achieve an optimal architecture for enterprises.
Ceph Days 2017 – Adit Madan presents on enabling fast big data analytics on Ceph with Alluxio.
Calvin Jia introduces Alluxio, explain how Alluxio can help Spark be more effective, show benchmark results with Spark RDDs and DataFrames, and describe production deployments with both Alluxio and Spark working together.
This is an excerpt from the Accelerating Data Analytics on Ceph Object Storage with Alluxio whitepaper.
As the volume of data collected by enterprises has grown, there is a continual need to find efficient storage solutions. Owing to its simplicity, scalability and cost-efficiency object storage, including Ceph, has increasingly become a popular alternative to traditional file systems. In most cases the object storage system, on-premise or in the cloud, is decoupled from compute nodes where analytics is run. There are several benefits of this separation.
Haoyuan Li offers an overview of Alluxio (formerly Tachyon), a memory-speed virtual distributed storage system.
A demo video of how Ceph could be integrated with Big Data solution through Alluxio.
Big Data Day LA 2016 – In the past year, the Alluxio project experienced a tremendous improvement in performance and scalability and was extended with key new features including tiered storage, transparent naming, and unified namespace. At the same time, the Alluxio ecosystem has expanded to include support for more under storage systems and computation frameworks.
