The technology industry is undergoing a data revolution in which the unlimited storage and compute power of the cloud is changing how data is stored, processed and managed.
Alluxio is a platform for data orchestration that aims to simplify and standardize how data is managed across different types of infrastructure by creating a layer of abstraction between the storage and application layers.
The Alluxio orchestrator virtualizes data and allows applications to access it in a way that’s compute, storage and cloud agnostic. It’s a platform designed to eliminate data silos and make data readily available and performant for developers.
Haoyuan (H.Y.) Li, CTO and founder of Alluxio, is a co-creator of the Apache Spark streaming library and built Alluxio as an open source virtual distributed file system for a computer science PhD project at Berkeley. Li is now building a startup, which currently boasts 40 employees and several large enterprise customers. The company offers enterprise features and support on top of its open source project.
