Alluxio, formerly Tachyon, is a memory speed virtual distributed storage system. The Alluxio open source community is one of the fastest growing open source communities in big data history with more than 300 developers from over 100 organizations around the world. In the past year, the Alluxio project experienced a tremendous improvement in performance and scalability and was extended with key new features including tiered storage, transparent naming, and unified namespace. Alluxio now supports a wide range of under storage systems, including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Gluster, Ceph, HDFS, NFS, and OpenStack Swift. This year, our goal is to make Alluxio accessible to an even wider set of users, through our focus on security, new language bindings, and further increased stability.
