Alluxio (formerly Tachyon): New Features and Demos

Bay Area Meetup *

Big data ecosystem is moving with massive energy, customers are from healthcare, retail, transportation, and other fields are benefiting significantly from the business insights derived. As the data growth continues, storage technologies and distributed memory systems are becoming even more important for real time decision making and insight discovery. Intel is excited to work with developer communities on Alluxio and to optimize Alluxio solutions on Intel platform. In this talk, Ziya will discuss Intel’s optimization work in the area, open source contribution and industry use cases.

Beijing Meetup *

In the active community development of the past year, Alluxio has greatly improved its read and write performance, scalability and user experience. In addition, in terms of functionality, Alluxio has added a number of new features, such as scalable tiered storage, transparent UFS data reading and writing, unified namespaces, and more. These features bring more value to Alluxio users and more efficient and convenient cluster storage management.

Past, Present and Future of Alluxio [Chinese]

The Alluxio project has greatly improved system performance, Scalability and user experience, and added a series of new features, including scalable tiered storage, transparent UFS data reading and writing, unified namespaces, and more. Easy to use with Alluxio. At the same time, the Alluxio ecosystem has expanded to support different storage systems and computing frameworks. Alluxio now supports a variety of storage systems, including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Gluster, Ceph, HDFS, NFS and OpenStack Swift, as well as big data processing frameworks such as Spark, MapReduce, Flink and more. These integrations allow Alluxio to manage and help with more and more complex data.

How Alluxio (formerly Tachyon) brings a 300x performance improvement to Qunar’s streaming processing

Strata+Hadoop World Singapore *

Alluxio is the first memory-speed virtual distributed storage system in the world. It unifies the interface between the various computing frameworks and under storages. Data access can be several magnitude faster because of Alluxio’s memory-centric architecture. In addition, Alluxio’s tiered storage, unified namespace, flexible file API, web UI, and command-line tools increase the usability in different application scenarios.
Qunar has been running Alluxio in production for over a year. Lei Xu explores how stream processing on Alluxio has led to a 16x performance improvement on average and 300x improvement at service peak time on workloads at Qunar.
