Online Meetup | How to Build a new Under Filesystem in Alluxio: Apache Ozone as an Example

Save your spot


In Alluxio, an Under File System is the plugin to connect to any file systems or object stores, so users can mount different storages like AWS S3 or HDFS into Alluxio namespace. This under filesystem is designed to be modular, in order to enable users to easily extend this framework with their own Under File System implementation and connect to a new or customized storage system.

In this talk, Baolong Mao from Tencent will share his experience in developing Apache Ozone under file system, showing how to create a new Under File System in a few steps with minimal lines of code.

This talk will focus on:

  • How the unified namespace works in Alluxio with different under file systems
  • How to create a new under file system to connect to Apache Ozone
  • Demonstrate how to use this new under file system in Alluxio

Alluxio is...

...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.
