In this blog, Derek Tan, Executive Director of Infra & Simulation at WeRide, describes how engineers leverage Alluxio as a hybrid cloud data gateway for applications on-premises to access public cloud storage like AWS S3.
“Zero-copy” Bursting across datacenters
FEATURED USE CASE
Is your on-prem compute capacity limited? Bursting data across your datacenters can bring the compute flexibility you need. Intelligently burst processing across datacenters with Alluxio Data Orchestration.
what is zero-copy burst?
Hybrid Cloud is the concept that you want to take advantage of resources that are not local to your data. It may be large data lakes or silos and you want to leverage some compute capacity in the cloud. Zero-Copy burst enables you to burst, or move, your remote data closer to compute in the cloud for these benefits:
Time to Production
Expand your cloud footprint with significantly lower lag
Reduce overload on existing infrastructure by moving ephemeral workloads to the cloud
One step closer to the cloud
Use zero-copy burst as the intermediate step before migrating fully to the cloud
spending too much time maintaining data copies?
Bursting your on-prem workloads to other data centers can mean slow performance and managing duplicate data/application changes.
Bandwidth between datacenters can be limited, leading to low performance and bottlenecks
Copying data across datacenters means maintaining duplicate data
Using other storage systems means expensive application changes
