NEW YORK, July 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alluxio, developer of open source data orchestration technology used by seven of the world’s top 10 Internet companies, today announced at AWS Summit New York the availability of Alluxio 2.0 with breakthrough innovations for data engineers managing and deploying analytical and AI workloads in the cloud, particularly for hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
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 data engineering problems – this is where an abstraction layer is needed. Just as compute and containers need Kubernetes, with data silos only increasing, data also needs orchestration – a tier, one that brings data locality, data accessibility and data elasticity to compute across data silos, zones, regions and even clouds.
“With a data orchestration platform in place, a data analyst or scientist can work under the assumption that the data will be readily accessible regardless of where the data resides or the characteristics of the storage. They can focus on building data driven analytical and AI applications to create values, without worrying about the environment and vendor lock-in,” said Haoyuan Li, Founder and CTO, Alluxio. “These new advancements to Alluxio’s data orchestration platform further cement our commitment to a cloud-native, open source approach to enabling applications to be compute, storage and cloud agnostic.”
Alluxio 2.0 Community Edition and Enterprise Edition includes new capabilities across critical areas that are gaps in today’s cloud data engineering market:
Breakthrough Data Orchestration Innovation for Multi-cloud:
Compute Optimized Data Access for Cloud Analytics:
Amazon AWS Support:
Architectural Foundations Using Open Source:
Many core foundational elements have been re-architected using the best open source technologies with a vision of hyper scale.
“Data is only as useful as the insights derived from it and with organizations trying to analyze as much data as possible to gain a competitive edge, it’s challenging to find useful data that’s spread across globally-distributed silos. This data is being requested by various compute frameworks, as well as different types of users hoping to gain actionable insight,” said Mike Leone, Analyst, ESG. “These multiple layers of complexity are driving the need for a solution to improve on the process of making the most valuable data accessible to compute at the speed of innovation. Alluxio has identified an important missing piece that makes data more local and easily accessible to data-powered compute frameworks regardless of where the data resides or the characteristics of the underlying storage systems and clouds.”
“Whether by design or by departmental necessity, companies are facing an explosion of data that is spread across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. To maintain a competitive advantage, speed and depth of insight have become the requirement,” said Steven Mih, CEO, Alluxio. “Data-driven analytics that were once run over many hours, now need to be done in seconds. AI/ML models need to be trained against larger-and-larger datasets. This all points to the necessity of a data tier which orchestrates the movement and policy-driven access of a companies' data, wherever it may be stored. Alluxio abstracts the storage and enables a self-service culture within today's data-driven company."
Other Features, Include:
Both Alluxio 2.0 Community and Enterprise Edition are now generally available for download via tarball, docker, brew etc.
