Recommendations to Level Up Your Machine Learning Platform

With machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) applications becoming more business-critical, organizations are in the race to advance their AI/ML capabilities. To realize the full potential of AI/ML, having the right underlying machine learning platform is a prerequisite.

Orchestrating Data for Machine Learning Pipelines

This article will discuss a new solution to orchestrating data for end-to-end machine learning pipelines that addresses the above questions. I will outline common challenges and pitfalls, followed by proposing a new technique, data orchestration, to optimize the data pipeline for machine learning.

A Year with Alluxio Community 2021

2021 marked accelerated growth for the Alluxio Open Source Project. We could not be more grateful for what the community has achieved together in this past year. This blog provides a glimpse of the year long summary of our community growth. 

Machine Learning Model Training with Alluxio: Part 2 – Comparable Analysis

This blog is the second in the machine learning series following the previous one, which discussed Alluxio’s solution to improve training performance and simplify data management. With the help of Alluxio, loading data from cloud storage, training and caching data can be done in a transparent and distributed way as a part of the training process, thus improving training performance and simplifying data management. In this blog 2 of the series, we focus on comparing traditional solutions with Alluxio’s.

Accelerating Machine Learning / Deep Learning in the Cloud: Architecture and Benchmark

This whitepaper introduces how to speed up end-to-end  distributed training in the cloud using Alluxio to accelerate data access. With the help of Alluxio, loading data from cloud storage, training and caching data can be done in a transparent and distributed way as a part of the training process. This whitepaper also demonstrates how to set up and benchmark the end-to-end performance of the training process, along with a comparison of other popular approaches.
