Introducing the Hub for Data Orchestration

We introduce Data Orchestration Hub, a management service that makes it easy to build an analytics or machine learning platform on data sources across regions to unify data lakes. Easy to use wizards connect compute engines, such as Presto or Spark, to data sources across data centers or from a public cloud to a private data center. In this session, you will witness the use of “The Hub” to connect a compute cluster in the cloud with data sources on-premises using Alluxio. This new service allows you to build a hybrid cloud on your own, without the expertise needed to manage or configure Alluxio.

The Future of Computing is Distributed

Distributed applications are not new. The first distributed applications were developed over 50 years ago with the arrival of computer networks, such as ARPANET. Since then, developers have leveraged distributed systems to scale out applications and services, including large-scale simulations, web serving, and big data processing. However, until recently, distributed applications have been the exception, rather than the norm. However, this is changing quickly.

Data Orchestration for Analytics and AI in the Cloud Era

In this keynote from Haoyuan Li, founder and CEO of Alluxio, we will showcase how organizations have built data platforms based on data orchestration. The need to simplify data management and acceleration across different business personas has given rise to data orchestration as a requisite piece of the modern data platform. In addition, we will outline typical journeys for realizing a hybrid and multi-cloud strategy.

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.

Unified Data Access with Gimel

At PayPal & any other data driven enterprise – data users & applications work with a variety of data sources (RDBMS, NoSQL, Messaging, Documents, Big Data, Time Series Databases), compute engines (Spark, Flink, Beam, Hive), languages (Scala, Python, SQL) and execution models (stream, batch, interactive) to process petabytes of data. Due to this complex matrix of technologies and thousands of datasets, engineers spend considerable time learning about different data sources, formats, programming models, APIs, optimizations, etc. which impacts time-to-market (TTM).
