Optimizing Query Performance by Decoupling Presto and Hive Data Warehouse

Ideally, Presto would access data independently from how the data was originally stored or managed. Alluxio, as a data orchestration layer provides the physical data independence, for Presto to interact with the data more efficiently. In addition to caching for IO acceleration, Alluxio also provides a catalog service to abstract the metadata in the Hive Metastore, and transformations to expose the data in compute-optimized way. In this talk, we describe some of the challenges of using Presto with Hive, and introduce Alluxio data orchestration for solving those challenges.

Testing Distributed System at Scale for the Cost of a Large Pizza on AWS

Building distributed systems is no small feat. Software testing is just one of many critical practices that engineers who build these systems need to utilize to ensure the quality and usability of their software. For distributed systems, scaling out testing frameworks to ensure that enterprises who run our in highly distributed environments is a complicated (and expensive task!)

Bursting Apache Spark Workloads to the Cloud on Remote Data

Community Online Office Hour *

Accessing data to run analytic workloads in Spark across data centers and/or clouds can be challenging. Additionally, network I/O can bottleneck Spark jobs that need to read a large amount of data. A common solution is to deploy an HDFS cluster closer to Spark as a caching layer and manually copy the input data to HDFS first, purging it afterward. But this ETL process can be both time-consuming and also error-prone.

Running Presto with Alluxio on Amazon EMR

Many organizations are leveraging EMR to run big data analytics on public cloud. However, reading and writing data to S3 directly can result in slow and inconsistent performance. Alluxio is a data orchestration layer for the cloud, and in this use case it caches data for S3, ensuring high and predictable performance as well as reduced network traffic.

What’s new in Alluxio 2: from seamless operations to structured data management

Alluxio 2.0 release was the biggest update since the birth of the project “Tachyon” from UC Berkley’s AmpLab. Gathering feedback from our Open Source Community and enterprise users, Alluxio 2.0 expands the system in three major directions including improving the operability of the system, having more advanced data management, as well as re-architecting the system to be able to scale to 1 billion + file. The system is now cloud native on AWS, Google Cloud, and allow users to enable native deployment with K8s. The new advanced data management enables data migration and replication from diff storage systems.
