Cloud data orchestration software provider Alluxio announced new cloud offerings and integrations with its 2.1 version. In addition, the company will be strengthening partnerships with AWS and Google Cloud.
“The rise of compute intensive workloads and the adoption of the cloud has driven organizations to adopt a decoupled architecture for modern workloads – one in which compute scales independently from storage. Analytical cloud services embrace this architecture and provide the needed agility to get insights from data faster,” said Steven Mih, CEO, Alluxio.
For AWS, the company will now provide Alluxio Enterprise Edition 2.1 on the Amazon marketplace, make cloud formation templates available, and tighten integration with AWS EMR service. On Google Cloud, Alluxio will integrate with Google Cloud Data Proc.
