Alluxio is a new layer on top of under storage systems that can not only improve raw I/O performance but also enables applications flexible options to read, write and manage files. This article focuses on describing different ways to write files to Alluxio, realizing the tradeoffs in performance, consistency, and also the level of fault tolerance compared to HDFS.
Alluxio is an open-source data orchestration system widely used to speed up data-intensive workloads in the cloud. Alluxio v2.0 introduced Replicated Async Write to allow users to complete writes to Alluxio file system and return quickly with high application performance, while still providing users with peace of mind that data will be persisted to the chosen under storage like S3 in the background.
Alluxio 2.0 is the most ambitious platform upgrade since the inception of Alluxio with greatly expanded capabilities to empower users to run analytics and AI workloads on private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures leveraging valuable data wherever it might be stored.
This release, now available for download, includes many advancements that will allow users to push the limits of their data-workloads in the cloud.
In this tech talk, we will introduce the key new features and enhancements such as:
we introduce Tachyon, a memory centric fault-tolerant distributed file system, which enables reliable file sharing at memory-speed across cluster frameworks, such as Spark and MapReduce.
This meetup presents an overview of the motivations and design decisions behind the major changes in the Alluxio 2.0 release, and Real-time Data Processing for Sales Attribution Analysis with Alluxio, Spark and Hive at VIPShop.
Joint meetup in Hangzhou discusses: An introduction to new features of big data storage system Alluxio and optimization of cache performance, Practice & exploration of Spark & Alluxio, and the Interactive query system Impala.
We will introduce the key new features and enhancements such as: Support for hyper-scale data workloads, Machine learning and deep learning workloads, and Better storage abstraction.
Joint hosted Alluxio New York meetup with talks to include: Embracing hybrid cloud for data-intensive analytic workloads and Alluxio on AWS EMR (fast storage access and sharing for Spark).
Alluxio maintainer and founding engineer Calvin Jia presents on Scalable Filesystem Metadata Services with RocksDB at the RocksDB meetup at Twitter.
