SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alluxio (formerly Tachyon), developers of the world’s first system that unifies data at memory speed, and Kyligence, a leading intelligent big data analytics company formed by the core members of Apache Kylin jointly announce a strategic partnership. The two companies collaborated to integrate the Alluxio memory-speed virtual distributed storage system with Apache Kylin's ultra-large-scale data analysis technology (OLAP on Hadoop) to further unlock the value of big data for enterprises.

With the exponential growth of data, how to efficiently access, analyze, and manage data is a significant challenge for enterprises wishing to extract value from its data. Traditional data warehouse and business intelligence (BI) systems cannot meet enterprise demands in today’s big data environment.

In a modern enterprise environment, many companies use multiple storage solutions simultaneously, deployed on premise, in public or private cloud environments. Alluxio provides a unified namespace for complex enterprise storage environments and allows any big data computation framework and application to access massive amounts of data stored in disparate storage systems at memory speed. In 2016, Alluxio, Inc. launched Alluxio Community Edition and Alluxio Enterprise Edition to meet enterprise customers’ requirements for features, service, and support in production environments. Alluxio runs critical workloads in Global 2000 companies such as Baidu, Barclays, CERN, ESRI, Intel, Huawei, and Juniper Networks.

Apache Kylin, as the world's leading OLAP on Hadoop technology for large-scale data sets provides sub-second interactive SQL analysis capabilities, and can be integrated with existing BI tools, while supporting massive concurrency. Kyligence introduced the enterprise product – Kyligence Analytics Platform (KAP) powered by Apache Kylin, which provides enterprise customers with a new generation of enterprise data warehouse and business intelligence platform based on Hadoop, delivering higher performance, greater manageability, and enhanced security. Apache Kylin and KAP are leveraged by many companies such as China Mobile, China Telecom, Shanghai Pudong Development Bank, China CITIC Bank, Guotai Junan Securities, Huatai Securities, OPPO, Lenovo.

To further leverage hardware resources to enhance the system's access to the underlying storage capacity and management capabilities, Alluxio and Kyligence have joined forces to integrate Alluxio memory-centric virtual distributed storage system into KAP. Alluxio reduces the bottleneck of underlying storage systems to enhance the overall system maintainability and performance, such that big data systems can serve concurrent SQL queries at Internet-scale. At the same time, Alluxio enables KAP to run on any storage system, such as Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Alibaba OSS, cloud storage services.

Alluxio founder and CEO, Haoyuan Li, said, “The partnership between Alluxio and Kyligence will allow enterprises to gain deeper insights from data as well as enable faster innovation in big data management and analytics.”

Kyligence co-founder and CEO Luke (Qing) Han said, "Kyligence and Alluxio collaboration will provide enterprise customers a variety of data analysis capabilities, flexibility with regards to storage and a unified access layer. This will further data analysis efficiency and support the rapid development of businesses.”
