Advancing GPU Analytics with RAPIDS Accelerator for Spark and Alluxio

RAPIDS is a set of open source libraries enabling GPU aware scheduling and memory representation for analytics and AI. Spark 3.0 uses RAPIDS for GPU computing to accelerate various jobs including SQL and DataFrame. With compute acceleration from massive parallelism on GPUs, there is a need for accelerating data access and this is what Alluxio enables for compute in any cloud. In this talk, you will learn how to use Alluxio and Spark with RAPIDS Accelerator on NVIDIA GPUs without any application changes.
