Alluxio on Kubernetes – Powering training through Container Storage Interface plugin

Shawn Sun from Alluxio will present the journey of using Alluxio as the storage system for Kubernetes through Container Storage Interface (CSI) plugin and Alluxio CSI driver. This talk will cover the challenges we are facing with traditional setup in the AI/ML training jobs, and how Alluxio CSI driver manages to address them. It will also talk about a recent change to the driver that made it more sturdy and robust.

Fluid: When Alluxio Meets Kubernetes

Nowadays, cloud native environments have attracted lots of data-intensive applications deployed and ran on them, due to the efficient-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain advantages provided by cloud native platforms and frameworks such as Docker, Kubernetes. However, cloud native frameworks does not provide the data abstraction support to the applications natively. Therefore, we build Fluid project, which co-orchestrate data and containers together. We use Alluxio as the cache runtime inside Fluid to warm up hot data. In this report, we will introduce the design and effects of the Fluid project.
