Tech Talk | Accelerate and Scale Big Data Analytics  with Disaggregated Compute and Storage

The ever increasing challenge to process and extract value from exploding data with AI and analytics workloads makes a memory centric architecture with disaggregated storage and compute more attractive. This decoupled architecture enables users to innovate faster and scale on-demand. Enterprises are also increasingly looking towards object stores to power their big data & machine learning workloads in a cost-effective way. However, object stores don't provide big data compatible APIs as well as the required performance. 


In this webinar, the Intel and Alluxio teams will present a proposed reference architecture using Alluxio as the in-memory accelerator for object stores to enable modern analytical workloads such as Spark, Presto, Tensorflow, and Hive. We will also present a technical overview of Alluxio.
