What is Alluxio

Alluxio (formerly known as Tachyon) is a virtual distributed storage system. It bridges the gap between computation frameworks and storage systems, enabling computation applications to connect to numerous storage systems through a common interface. Read more about Alluxio Overview.

The Alluxio project originated from a research project called Tachyon at AMPLab, UC Berkeley, which was the data layer of the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS). For more details, please refer to Haoyuan Li's PhD dissertation Alluxio: A Virtual Distributed File System.

Who Uses Alluxio

Alluxio is used in production to manage Petabytes of data in many leading companies, with the largest deployment exceeding 1300 nodes. Find more use cases at Powered by Alluxio.

    -v /mnt/data:/opt/alluxio/underFSStorage\
    alluxio/alluxio master

Report a Bug

To report bugs, suggest improvements, or create new feature requests, please open a Github Issue. Our previous Alluxio JIRA system has been deprecated since December 2018.

Depend on Alluxio

For Alluxio versions 1.4 or earlier, use the alluxio-core-client artifact.

For Alluxio versions 1.5 or later, Alluxio provides several different client artifacts. The Alluxio file system interface provided by the alluxio-core-client-fs artifact is recommended for the best performance and access to Alluxio-specific functionality. If you want to use other interfaces, include the appropriate client artifact. For example, alluxio-core-client-hdfs provides a client implementing HDFS's file system API.
