Tech Talk | Build a hybrid data lake and burst processing to Google Cloud Dataproc with Alluxio

As the amount of data analyzed and stored continues to grow exponentially, fixed on-premises infrastructure like Apache Hadoop data lakes becomes costly. Add to that the need to support newer and popular frameworks on an already busy data lake, it is not uncommon to see Hadoop-based data lakes running at beyond 100% utilization and hybrid processing split between physical and cloud infrastructure. As a result, companies are looking to leverage the flexibility and cost savings of the cloud. 


Join us for this tech talk where we will show you how Alluxio can help burst your private computing environment to Google Cloud, minimizing costs and I/O overhead. Alluxio coupled with Google’s open source data and analytics processing engine, Dataproc, enables zero-copy burst for faster query performance in the cloud so you can take advantage of resources that are not local to your data, without the need for managing the copying or syncing of that data. 


We’ll also show a demo on how to get up and running with Alluxio and Dataproc, including how to:


  • Setup your hybrid environment between your private datacenter and Google Cloud Platform
  • Burst a Spark based machine learning algorithm to Dataproc while accessing on-prem data
  • Scale analytic workloads directly on data on-prem without copying and synchronizing the data into the cloud
