Recap: Spark+AI Summit 2019

Alluxio is a proud sponsor and exhibitor of Spark+AI Summit in San Francisco.
What’s Spark+AI Summit? It’s the world’s largest conference that is focused on Apache Spark – Alluxio’s older cousin open source project from the same lab (UC Berkeley’s AMPLab – now RISElab).

Fighting Cybercrime: A Joint Task Force of Real-Time Data and Human Analytics

Spark Summit East *

In this presentation, William Callaghan will focus on the challenges faced and lessons learned in building a human-in-the loop cyber threat analytics pipeline. They will discuss the topic of analytics in cybersecurity and highlight the use of technologies such as Spark Streaming/SQL, Cassandra, Kafka and Alluxio in creating an analytics architecture with missions-critical response times.

Alluxio+Presto: An Architecture for Fast SQL in the Cloud

Bay Area Meetup *

Cloud object storage systems provide different semantics and performance implications compared to HDFS. Applications like Presto cannot benefit from the node-level locality or cross-job caching when reading from the cloud. Deploying Alluxio with Presto to access cloud solves these problems because data will be retrieved and cached in Alluxio instead of the underlying cloud or object storage repeatedly. Bin will present the architecture to combine Presto with Alluxio with use cases from major internet companies like JD.com and NetEase.com, and their lessons learned to operate this architecture at scale.

Interactive Big Data Analytics with the Presto + Alluxio stack for the Cloud

Alluxio Tech Talk *

In this tech talk, we will introduce the Starburst Presto, Alluxio, and Cloud object store stack for building a highly-concurrent and low-latency analytics platform. This stack provides a strong solution to run fast SQL across multiple storage systems including HDFS, S3 and others in public cloud, hybrid cloud and multi cloud environments.

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.
