"Today, we are very excited to announce the 1.0 release of Alluxio, the world’s first memory-centric virtual distributed storage system, which unifies data access and bridges computation frameworks and underlying storage systems. Applications only need to connect with Alluxio to access data stored in any underlying storage systems. Additionally, Alluxio’s memory-centric architecture enables data access orders of magnitude faster than existing solutions.
Now, organizations can run any computation framework (e.g. Apache Spark, Apache MapReduce, Apache Flink, etc.) with any storage system (e.g. Alibaba OSS, Amazon S3, OpenStack Swift, GlusterFS, Ceph, etc.), leveraging any storage media (e.g. DRAM, SSD, HDD, etc.).", Haoyuan Li, CEO of Alluxio wrote this on his blog.
This graph will show how people are involved in this project comparing with other open source projects.
Get ready for tackle Big data with Alluxio in "tachyon" speed. :)
I already wrote some blog about tachyon in past days.
