Alluxio (formerly Tachyon) is an open source memory-speed virtual distributed storage system. The Alluxio community is one of the fastest growing open source communities in big data history, with more than 400 developers from over 100 organizations around the world, and the Alluxio system has been deployed at a number of companies, including Alibaba, Baidu, Barclays, Intel, Huawei, and Qunar. In some of these deployments, Alluxio has been running in production for over a year, managing petabytes of data.

In the past year, the Alluxio project experienced significant improvement in performance and scalability and was extended with key new features including tiered storage, transparent naming, and unified namespace. At the same time, the Alluxio ecosystem has expanded to include support for more under storage systems and computation frameworks. In particular, Alluxio now supports a wide range of under storage systems, including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Gluster, Ceph, HDFS, NFS, and OpenStack Swift. These integrations make it possible for Alluxio to be leveraged in many different environments.

Haoyuan Li explores Alluxio’s goal of making its product accessible to an even wider set of users, through a focus on security, new language bindings, and further increased stability. Haoyuan also covers some new APIs Alluxio is working on to allow applications to access data more efficiently and manage data across different under storage systems.
