Alluxio, formerly Tachyon, is the world's first system that unifies disparate storage systems at memory speed. With Alluxio, enterprises can manage data efficiently, accelerate business analytics, and ease the adoption of hybrid cloud.
Connect all your big data systems and applications to your enterprise data through a single fast and flexible interface.
Virtualize disparate storage systems under a unified global namespace, enabling new workflows across any data in any storage.
Automatically co-locate data with compute, providing memory speed access to data, resulting in orders of magnitude improvement in run time of jobs.
Our software-only solution grows with your needs and seamlessly integrates with existing applications with no changes.
Deploy Alluxio wherever you want—on prem, in the public cloud, or in hybrid environments. Place Alluxio on its own cluster, or co-locate it with your compute cluster for the highest performance.

Accelerate Access to Remote Storage
Running big data computational frameworks slows to a crawl when queries require access to and from data stored remotely. Accelerate local and remote data access with Alluxio and eliminate I/O bottlenecks.
The performance was amazing. With Spark SQL alone, it took 100-150 seconds to finish a query; using Alluxio, where data may hit local or remote Alluxio nodes, it took 10-15 seconds.
Share Data Across Jobs at Memory Speed
Performance can slow when data output of one job is input for the next job or when different applications and jobs require access to the same data. Alluxio shares data transparently at memory speed to any application.
Thanks to Alluxio, we now have the raw data immediately available at every iteration and we can skip the costs of loading in terms of time waiting, network traffic, and RDBMS activity.
Manage Data Across Different Storage Systems
Managing stored data across different systems constrains every enterprise data center with scores of different vendors offering different products and new storage solutions entering the market every year. Alluxio simplifies data management in one system with no application changes required.
We’ve been running Alluxio in production for over 9 months, resulting in 15x speedup on average, and 300x speedup at peak service times.
