Improving Data Locality for Spark Jobs on Kubernetes Using Alluxio

Alluxio Community Office Hour *

One important performance optimization in Apache Spark is to schedule tasks on nodes with HDFS data nodes locally serving the task input data. However, more users are running Apache Spark natively on Kubernetes where HDFS is not an option. This office hour describes the concept and dataflow with respect to using the stack of Spark/Alluxio in Kubernetes with enhanced data locality even the storage service is outside or remote.

Ultra-fast SQL Analytics using PAS (Presto on Alluxio Stack)

This talk describes a stack of open-source projects to serve high-concurrent and low-latency SQL queries using Presto with Alluxio on big data in the cloud. Deploying Alluxio as a data orchestration layer to access cloud storage object storage (e.g., AWS S3), this architecture greatly enhances the data locality of Presto with distributed and cross-query caching, thus avoids reading same data repeatedly from the cloud storage.
