Alluxio Deepens Cloud Service Integrations on AWS and Google Cloud

Alluxio, the developer of open source cloud data orchestration software, is providing a range of cloud offerings and integrations with the latest Alluxio version 2.1, as well as strengthening of partnerships with Amazon AWS and Google Cloud.

Alluxio advanced to the Select Technology Partner status and joined the Google Cloud Partner Program as a technology partner giving AWS and Google Cloud customers the ability to accelerate analytical workloads and orchestrate data across clouds.

Alluxio can now be integrated with both of these leading cloud analytical services to speed up analytical jobs on a range of computational frameworks like Apache Spark, Presto, Hive, TensorFlow and others.

“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. Analytical cloud services embrace this architecture and provide the needed agility to get insights from data faster,” said Steven Mih, CEO, Alluxio. “We are thrilled to deepen our partnership with Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud to further enable users on their data transformation journeys.”

 New offerings on Amazon Web Service include:

  • Alluxio Enterprise Edition v2.1.0 is now available via the Amazon AWS Marketplace. This AMI is available via a pay as you go model as well as an annual subscription.
  • Alluxio Cloud Formation Templates are available which greatly simplifies Alluxio cluster creation for users. After selecting a few configurations, a cluster of any size can be brought up in minutes.
  • Tighter Alluxio integration with AWS EMR service includes options to backup state and enable stateful EMR clusters and brings up Alluxio on the EMR cluster as a part of provisioning step.

The new offering on Google Cloud includes the Alluxio integration with Google Cloud Dataproc, which allows users to bring up Alluxio within the Google Dataproc cluster with a single command.

Additionally, Starburst Data and Alluxio jointly released a few Amazon Web Service product offerings to simplify Presto deployments in the cloud for performance sensitive workloads. With Alluxio, Presto queries running on data in AWS S3 can see a dramatic performance improvement.
