Alluxio and Mesosphere partner to enable fast on-demand analytics with Alluxio and DC/OS

Today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with Mesosphere to enable fast on-demand analytics with Alluxio via Mesosphere’s DC/OS in one-click. This partnership is a natural extension of the synergy between Alluxio and DC/OS. Alluxio, the world’s first system that unifies data at memory speed, allows enterprises to manage and analyze data stored across disparate storage systems on premise and in the cloud at memory speed. Mesosphere brings enterprises the power of cloud native technologies, with the control to run on any infrastructure – datacenter or cloud.

Alluxio (formerly Tachyon): An open source memory-speed virtual distributed storage system

Strata+Hadoop 2016 – In the past year, the Alluxio project experienced a tremendous improvement in performance and scalability and was extended with key new features including tiered storage, transparent naming, and unified namespace. At the same time, the Alluxio ecosystem has expanded to include support for more under storage systems and computation frameworks.

Using Alluxio to Improve the Performance and Consistency of HDFS Clusters

Alluxio is the world’s first memory-speed virtual distributed storage system that bridges applications and underlying storage systems, providing unified data access orders of magnitudes faster than existing solutions. The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is a distributed file system for storing large volumes of data. HDFS popularized the paradigm of bringing computation to data and the co-located compute and storage architecture.
In this blog, we highlight two key benefits Alluxio brings to a compute cluster co-located with HDFS.
