This whitepaper consists of two portions. The first is a high level overview of the
advantages of using Alluxio as a core technology with on-demand clusters. The
second portion is intended for engineers; it provides a detailed step-by-step guide to
deploying an on-demand cluster with Alluxio and instructions for running a sample
workload on the cluster. At the end of the paper you will have a good understanding
of how to deploy this architecture and the value Alluxio brings to the stack.
