Alluxio has announced the integration of NetApp StorageGRID, software-defined scalable object storage for distributed data with security and disaster recovery, with Alluxio’s Data Orchestration Platform that simplifies the delivery of data to a wide variety of data-driven applications. The combined solution helps enterprises accelerate adoption of the cloud and optimize their resource spend for a modern data platform ready for enormous scale.
The solution provides a unified view of data spread across regions for agility across applications. Hot and cold data is managed across expensive and cheaper storage tiers transparently to applications with a single data management interface. Also, the solution maximizes data availability for compute spread across regions while optimizing space utilization.
Data platform teams using engines like Presto, Spark, PyTorch and Tensorflow will benefit from the joint solution for all data storage and management needs when data is segregated across regions for load balancing or high availability.
A wide range of use cases across industries benefit from the solution with the agility needed to cater to evolving requirements, avoiding data silos across business units and optimizing storage cost while maximizing performance.
