StorageQuery: federated querying on object stores, powered by Alluxio and Presto

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

Over the last few years, organizations have worked towards the separation of storage and compute for a number of benefits in the areas of cost, data duplication and data latency. Cloud resolves most of these issues but comes to the expense of needing a way to query data on remote storages. Alluxio and Presto are a powerful combination to address the compute problem, which is part of the strategy used by Simbiose Ventures to create a product called StorageQuery – A platform to query files in cloud storages with SQL.

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.

Simplified Data Preparation for Machine Learning in Hybrid and Multi Clouds

ODSC WEST 2019 Cloud storage brings great flexibility in management and cost-efficiency to data scientists, but also introduces new challenges related to data accessibility and data locality for machine learning applications. For instance, when the input data is stored in a remote cloud storage like AWS S3 or Azure blob storage, direct data access is … Continued

Alluxio Global Online Meetup *

In this online meetup, we will present the benefits of the fast analytics stack of Spark on Alluxio, and dive into China Unicom’s use case of leveraging Spark and Alluxio to process massive amounts of mobile data.

Why Data Orchestration?

Today’s current pace of innovation is hindered by the necessity of reinventing the wheel in order for applications to efficiently access data. When an engineer or scientist wants to write an application to solve a problem, he or she needs to spend significant effort on getting the application to access the data efficiently and effectively, rather than focusing on the algorithms and the application’s logic.
