A recent press release reports, “Alluxio, developer of open source data orchestration technology for the cloud used by seven of the world’s top 10 Internet companies, today announced at Presto Summit it has collaborated with Starburst Data, the Presto company, to offer a bundled solution that provides its users with exceptional performance and multi-cloud capabilities for interactive analytic workloads. Users can now 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.”
The release goes on, “With the advent of the public clouds and data increasingly siloed across many locations — on premises and in the public cloud, enterprises are looking for more flexibility and higher performance approaches to analyze their structured data. Alluxio’s data orchestration technology seamlessly brings data closer to compute, makes data more accessible through many different APIs and increases query performance via a tiered cache. Presto, the fastest-growing distributed SQL query engine, enables query federation across disparate data sources allowing users to separate computation from their data lake clusters. Together, Presto and Alluxio, allow for true separation of compute and storage, as Alluxio brings data requested by the workload from any file and object storage, on premises or in the public cloud, closer to Presto. This enables data locality at each node bringing consistent, higher performance to Presto workloads. In addition, for the first time, users can deploy hybrid and multi-cloud analytics even with remote data sets.”
