Enabling Hybrid Cloud Analytics and AI with Data Orchestration

The data ecosystem has heavily evolved over the past two decades. There’s been an explosion of data-driven frameworks, such as Presto, Spark, and Hive to run analytics and ETL queries and TensorFlow and PyTorch to train and serve models. On the data side, the approach to managing and storing data has evolved from HDFS to cheaper, more scalable and separated services typified by cloud stores like AWS S3. As a result, data engineering has become increasingly complex, inefficient, and hard, particularly in hybrid and cloud environments.
As the amount of data analyzed and stored continues to grow exponentially, fixed on-premises infrastructure like Apache Hadoop data lakes becomes costly. Add to that the need to support newer and popular frameworks on an already busy data lake, it is common to see Hadoop-based data lakes running at beyond 100% utilization and hybrid processing split between physical and cloud infrastructure. As a result, companies are looking to leverage the flexibility and cost savings of the cloud.
Adit Madan and Parviz Peiravi offer an overview of the Alluxio data orchestration layer that provides a unified data access layer for hybrid and multi cloud deployments, leveraging Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory for higher performance caching at reduced cost. The data access layer enables distributed compute engines like Presto, TensorFlow, and PyTorch to transparently access data from various storage systems (including S3, HDFS, and Azure) while actively leveraging a multi-tier cache to accelerate data access.
