Introducing Alluxio 2.3

Alluxio 2.3.0 focuses on streamlining the user experience in hybrid cloud deployments where Alluxio is deployed with compute in the cloud to access data on-prem. Features such as environment validation tools and concurrent metadata synchronization greatly improve Alluxio’s functionality. Integrations with AWS EMR, Google Dataproc, K8s, and AWS Glue make Alluxio easy to use in a variety of cloud environments. In this article, we will share some of the highlights of the release.

2.0 is here! Embrace silos, orchestrate data, accelerate innovation!

Here in New York, at the AWS Summit, we are super excited to announce that Alluxio 2.0 is here, our most major release since the Alluxio launch. A couple months ago, we released 2.0 Preview – which included some of the capabilities, but 2.0 now includes even more, to continue building on to our data orchestration approach for the cloud.
