Tech Talk | Introduction to Alluxio 2.0 Preview
Alluxio 2.0 is the most ambitious platform upgrade since the inception of Alluxio with greatly expanded capabilities to empower users to run analytics and AI workloads on private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures leveraging valuable data wherever it might be stored. This preview release, now available for download, includes many advancements that will allow users to push the limits of their data-workloads in the cloud.
In this webinar, we will introduce the key new features and enhancements such as:
- Support for hyper-scale data workloads with tiered metadata storage, distributed cluster services, and adaptive replication for increased data locality
- Machine learning and deep learning workloads on any storage with the improved POSIX API
- Better storage abstraction with support for HDFS clusters across different versions & active sync with Hadoop
