Arimo Leverages Alluxio’s In-Memory Capability, Improving Time-to-Results for Deep Learning Models

Arimo Team Nov 25th, 2016

Deep learning algorithms have traditionally been used in specific applications, most notably, computer vision, machine translation, text mining, and fraud detection. Deep learning truly shines when the model is big and trained on large-scale datasets. Meanwhile, distributed computing platforms like Spark are designed to handle big data and have been used extensively. Therefore, by having deep learning available on Spark, the application of deep learning is much broader, and now businesses can fully take advantage of deep learning capabilities using their existing Spark infrastructure.

Using Alluxio to Improve the Performance and Consistency of HDFS Clusters

Calvin Jia Sep 1st, 2016

Alluxio is the world's first memory-speed virtual distributed storage system that bridges applications and underlying storage systems, providing unified data access orders of magnitudes faster than existing solutions. The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is a distributed file system for storing large volumes of data. HDFS popularized the paradigm of bringing computation to data and the co-located compute and storage architecture.

Effective Spark RDDs with Alluxio

Gene Pang Pei Sun Aug 25th, 2016

Organizations like Baidu and Barclays have deployed Alluxio with Spark in their architecture, and have achieved impressive benefits and gains. Recently, Qunar deployed Alluxio with Spark in production and found that Alluxio enables Spark streaming jobs to run 15x to 300x faster. In this blog, we investigate how Alluxio can make Spark more effective, and discuss various ways to use Alluxio with Spark. Alluxio helps Spark perform faster, and enables multiple Spark jobs to share the same, memory-speed data.

Introducing Alluxio Open Source Project Governance

Haoyuan Li May 30th, 2016

Alluxio, formerly Tachyon, began as a research project at UC Berkeley’s AMPLab in 2012. This year we announced the 1.0 release of Alluxio, the world’s first memory speed virtual distributed storage system, which unifies data access and bridges computation frameworks and underlying storage systems. We have been working closely with the Alluxio community on realizing the vision of Alluxio to become the de facto storage unification layer for big data and other scale out application environments.

Getting Started with Alluxio and Spark

Calvin Jia Apr 5th, 2016

Alluxio, formerly Tachyon, provides Spark with a reliable data sharing layer, enabling Spark to excel at performing application logic while Alluxio handles storage. For example, global financial powerhouse Barclays made the impossible possible by using Alluxio with Spark in their architecture. Technology giant Baidu analyzes petabytes of data and realized 30x performance improvements with a new architecture centered around Alluxio and Spark.
