Alluxio 2.0 release was the biggest update since the birth of the project “Tachyon” from UC Berkley’s AmpLab. Gathering feedback from our Open Source Community and enterprise users, Alluxio 2.0 expands the system in three major directions including improving the operability of the system, having more advanced data management, as well as re-architecting the system to be able to scale to 1 billion + file. The system is now cloud native on AWS, Google Cloud, and allow users to enable native deployment with K8s. The new advanced data management enables data migration and replication from diff storage systems. 


In this office hour, we introduce what’s new in the Alluxio 2 release, and dive deeper in each major direction the system has expanded on.

In this Office Hour, we will go over:

  • Introduction and motivation of focus areas of Alluxio 2
  • Overview of cloud native deployment methods
  • New data management features
  • System scalability improvements

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.
