Alluxio Version 2.1 Now Available


Alluxio has made available a range of cloud offerings and integrations with the latest Alluxio version 2.1. At the first Data Orchestration Summit at the Computer History Museum, the company also announced the strengthening of partnerships with Amazon AWS and Google Cloud.

Alluxio said it advanced to the Amazon Select Technology Partner status and joined the Google Cloud Partner Program as a technology partner. This will enable AWS and Google Cloud customers to accelerate analytical workloads and orchestrate data across clouds.

What this implies is that Alluxio can now be integrated with both Amazon’s EMR and Google Cloud’s Dataproc to speed up analytical jobs on a range of computational frameworks like Apache Spark, Presto, Hive, TensorFlow and others. These cloud data analytic services help users reduce hardware spend, eliminate the need to overbuy capacity, and provide business agility, the company said.
