Testing Distributed System at Scale for the Cost of a Large Pizza on AWS

Building distributed systems is no small feat. Software testing is just one of many critical practices that engineers who build these systems need to utilize to ensure the quality and usability of their software. For distributed systems, scaling out testing frameworks to ensure that enterprises who run our in highly distributed environments is a complicated (and expensive task!)

In this online meetup, you will learn about:

  • How the engineers at Alluxio have approached testing at scale
  • Approaches to maintaining distributed systems at scale

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.
