A new press release reports, “Alluxio, the developer of open source cloud data orchestration software, today announced a go-to-market solution in collaboration with Intel to offer an in-memory acceleration layer with 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane persistent memory (PMem). The solution eliminates performance degradation of analytics clusters that are increasingly built on disaggregated compute and storage architecture.”
The release goes on, “Benchmarking results show 2.13x faster completion compared to local HDFS and a 1.92x speedup over DRAM cache for 4TB decision support queries when adding Alluxio and Intel persistent memory. Using Storage over App Direct, a feature of PMem App Direct mode, allows Alluxio to access high-performance block storage without the latency of moving data across the I/O bus to provide the data acceleration and reduction in query runtime. With Alluxio and Intel Xeon Scalable processors, an I/O intensive benchmark delivers a 3.4x speedup over disaggregated S3 object storage and a 1.3x speedup over a co-located compute and storage architecture.”
It adds, “In addition, Alluxio has joined into a strategic collaboration with Intel aimed at improving their joint customers’ experience with managing and processing their data, such as optimizations for Intel Deep Learning Boost, the AI acceleration technology built into Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Together, Alluxio and Intel will bring solutions to market to help fuel next-generation data, analytics and AI applications and use cases.”
