Presto on Alluxio: How Netease Games leveraged Alluxio to boost ad hoc SQL on HDFS

Netease Games is the operator for many popular online games in China like “World of Warcraft” and “Hearthstone”. Netease Games also has developed quite a few popular games on its own such as “Fantasy Westward Journey 2”, “Westward Journey 2”, “World 3”, “League of Immortals”. The strong growth of the business drives the demand to build and maintain a data platform handling a massive amount of data and delivering insights promptly from the data. Given our data scale, it is very challenging to support high-performance ad-hoc queries to the data with results generated in a timely manner.

New York Meetup Recap – September 2018

we held our first New York City Alluxio Meetup! Work-Bench was very generous for hosting the Alluxio meetup in Manhattan. This was the first US Alluxio meetup outside of the Bay Area, so it was extremely exciting to get to meet Alluxio enthusiasts on the east coast!
The meetup focused on users of Alluxio with different applications from Hive and Presto. As an introduction, Haoyuan Li (creator and founder of Alluxio) and Bin Fan (founding engineer of Alluxio) gave an overview of Alluxio and the new features and enhancements of the new v1.8.0 release.
