Enabling Hybrid Cloud Analytics and AI with Data Orchestration

IoT World Today Webinar *

Adit Madan and Parviz Peiravi offer an overview of the Alluxio data orchestration layer that provides a unified data access layer for hybrid and multi cloud deployments, leveraging Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory for higher performance caching at reduced cost. The data access layer enables distributed compute engines like Presto, TensorFlow, and PyTorch to transparently access data from various storage systems (including S3, HDFS, and Azure) while actively leveraging a multi-tier cache to accelerate data access.

Introducing Alluxio 2.3

Alluxio 2.3.0 focuses on streamlining the user experience in hybrid cloud deployments where Alluxio is deployed with compute in the cloud to access data on-prem. Features such as environment validation tools and concurrent metadata synchronization greatly improve Alluxio’s functionality. Integrations with AWS EMR, Google Dataproc, K8s, and AWS Glue make Alluxio easy to use in a variety of cloud environments. In this article, we will share some of the highlights of the release.

Bursting Spark or Presto Jobs to AWS using Alluxio

In this office hour, we demonstrate how a “zero-copy burst” solution helps to speed up Spark and Presto queries in the public cloud while eliminating the process of manually copying and synchronizing data from the on-premise data lake to cloud storage. This approach allows compute frameworks to decouple from on-premise data sources and scale efficiently by leveraging Alluxio and public cloud resources such as AWS.

Tech Talk: Build a hybrid data lake and burst processing to Google Cloud Dataproc with Alluxio

Join us for this tech talk where we will show you how Alluxio can help burst your private computing environment to Google Cloud, minimizing costs and I/O overhead. Alluxio coupled with Google’s open source data and analytics processing engine, Dataproc, enables zero-copy burst for faster query performance in the cloud so you can take advantage of resources that are not local to your data, without the need for managing the copying or syncing of that data.

Using Alluxio to Optimize and Improve Performance of Kubernetes-Based Deep Learning in the Cloud

This article presents the collaborative work of Alibaba, Alluxio, and Nanjing University in tackling the problem of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning model training in the cloud. We adopted a hybrid solution with a data orchestration layer that connects private data centers to cloud platforms in a containerized environment. Various performance bottlenecks are analyzed with detailed optimizations of each component in the architecture.

Accelerate and Scale Big Data Analytics with Alluxio and Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory

International Data Corporation (IDC) reported that the global datasphere will grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 zettabytes by 20251. This trend becomes more and more complicated with the variety and velocity of data growth, and it continuously changes the ways data is collected, stored, processed, and analyzed. New analytics solutions, including machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence (AI), and new architectures and tools are being developed to extract and deliver value from the huge datasphere.
