Data platform company Aunalytics has deployed Alluxio’s Data Orchestration platform as a key component of its digital transformation strategy. According to the company, the deployment resulted in an up to 90% post-migration reduction of their data movement/copy requirements and improved compute and delivery times by up to 30%.
As an early adopter of Hadoop technologies, Aunalytics generated operational overhead it was now looking to eliminate. Aunalytics planned to implement the next generation of its compute platform which sought to completely segregate storage, compute, and delivery for ease of development and scale, with an adaptive data platform (Aunsight) which is capable of submitting workloads to many compute services sourcing data from many storage environments.
Challenged with centralizing on a well-known storage environment such as NFS, iSCSI, etc. or adopting a many/any storage environment with a single point of access for those systems, the team decided to opt for Alluxio. This provided a centralized data I/O interface to simplify integrations with newer compute engines going forward.
Alluxio helps Aunalytics compute environments with a single point of access for all stored data regardless of its volume, velocity, or storage I/O performance capabilities. This allows the team’s developers to focus on analytics integrations irrespective of storage environment limitations or compatibility.
