Starting 2019 we have launched monthly community office hours online, which will be hosted by PMC Maintainers and top contributors to the Alluxio open source project. External speakers are welcome! If you are interested in presenting or hosting a session please contact [masked].
To join the office hour please RSVP: https://go.alluxio.io/oh-alluxio-presto-s3
Many organizations want to run big data analytics with frameworks such as Presto on public clouds. However, reading and writing data to S3 directly can result in slow and inconsistent performance. Alluxio is a data orchestration layer for the cloud, and in this use case it caches data for S3, ensuring high and predictable performance as well as reduced network traffic.
In this Office Hour we'll go over:
-How to set up Presto with Alluxio such that Presto jobs can seamlessly read from and write to S3
-Compare the performance between Presto on S3 with Presto and Alluxio on S3
-Open Session for discussion on any topics such as solving the separation of compute and storage problem, and more
