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.

Accelerating Data Computation on Ceph Objects using Alluxio

In this talk, we will present how using Alluxio computation and storage ecosystems can better interact benefiting of the “bringing the data close to the code” approach. Moving away from the complete disaggregation of computation and storage, data locality can enhance the computation performance. During this talk, we will present our observations and testing results that will show important enhancements in accelerating Spark Data Analytics on Ceph Objects Storage using Alluxio.

Speeding Up Spark Performance using Alluxio at China Unicom

Unicom’s traditional batch architecture consists mainly of IOE, Hive, and Greenplum systems. With the development of business, a large number of computing application modules based on diverse scenarios, chimney-like, decentralized applications have emerged. To solve the problem of resource fragmentation, we have introduced a unified computing platform for computing ecology with Spark and Alluxio as the core. Alluxio plays an important role in accelerating data processing and ensuring process stability.
