Tech Talk | How the Development Bank of Singapore solves on-prem compute capacity challenges with cloud bursting

The DBS team was tasked to solve their compute capacity problem. They wanted to provide faster insights and analyze data for a range of use cases but didn’t have the ability to scale compute elastically on-prem.


One use case that challenged them was customer call analysis. With the millions of customer calls they get every year, DBS manages over 50TB of customer data and audio files. This data needed to reside on-prem for compliance reasons. With on-prem compute limitations, they looked to the public cloud to analyze this data and selected “zero-copy” bursting as the best approach.  


In this tech talk, we’ll discuss why DBS turned to Alluxio’s bursting approach to help solve these challenges. Vitaliy Baklikov, SVP at DBS, will discuss:

  • Challenges and inefficiencies with their prior data stack 
  • Moving to a disaggregated data stack using Alluxio 
  • Bursting data without persisting in the cloud
  • An overview of Alluxio’s “zero-copy” hybrid bursting solution
