Online Meetup | Separating Compute and Storage for Data Science and AI

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.


In this online meetup, you will learn about:

  • the benefits of separating compute and storage
  • how to co-locate data with compute for higher performance
  • how to leverage compute frameworks such as Spark with Alluxio for fast analytics on any storage

...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.
