Achieving Separation of Compute and Storage in a Cloud World

The rise of compute intensive workloads and the adoption of the cloud has driven organizations to adopt a decoupled architecture for modern workloads - one in which compute scales independently from storage. While this enables scaling elasticity, it introduces new problems - how do you co-locate data with compute, how do you unify data across multiple remote clouds, how do you keep storage and I/O service costs down and many more.  


Enter Alluxio, a virtual unified file system, which sits between compute and storage that allows you to realize the benefits of a  hybrid cloud architecture with the same performance and lower costs. 


In this webinar, we will discuss:


  • Why leading enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud architectures with compute and storage disaggregated
  • The new challenges that this new paradigm introduces
  • An introduction to Alluxio and the unified data solution it provides for hybrid environments

...a data orchestration layer for compute in any cloud. It unifies data silos on-premise and across any cloud to give you data locality, accessibility, and elasticity.


Whether it’s accelerating big data frameworks on the public cloud, running big data workloads in hybrid cloud environments, or enabling big data on object stores or multiple clouds, Alluxio reduces the complexities associated with orchestrating data for today’s big data and AI/ML workloads.
