Alluxio Forms OEM Partnership with Starburst Data to Accelerate Cloud Analytics

Alluxio, developer of open source data orchestration technology for the cloud, is collaborating with Starburst Data, the Presto company, to offer a bundled solution that provides users with multi-cloud capabilities for interactive analytic workloads. The goal is to help customers transform their legacy data warehouse approach to a modern cloud approach, with a disaggregated compute and storage stack built on Presto, Alluxio, and any file or object storage.

According to the companies, with data increasingly siloed across on-premise deployments and the public cloud, enterprises are looking for more flexibility and higher performance approaches to analyze their structured data.

Alluxio’s data orchestration technology makes data more accessible through APIs, and increases query performance via a tiered cache. Presto, which provides a distributed SQL query engine, enables query federation across disparate data sources, allowing users to separate computation from their data lake clusters.

Alluxio brings data requested by the workload from any file and object storage, on-premise or in the public cloud, closer to Presto. This enables data locality at each node bringing consistent, higher performance to Presto workloads. In addition, users can deploy hybrid and multi-cloud analytics even with remote datasets.

Alluxio is now available for purchase through Starburst Data. For more information, go to
