In the age of growing data and increased computing power, deep learning models continue to improve their performance across a variety of domains, with access to more and more data, and the processing power to train larger neural networks. This rise of deep learning advances the state-of-the-art for AI but also exposes some challenges for the access to data in different storage systems especially in cloud object storage. In this talk, we will describe the storage challenges for deep learning workloads and how Alluxio can help to solve them.


Alluxio is an open-source memory-speed storage system, which unifies disparate persistent storage systems and provides data access as a local folder to the deep learning frameworks. With Alluxio, data scientists can gain easy access to a variety of storage systems (including Azure block store, AWS S3, and many others) and flexibility without the compromise on performance. This talk will use Tensorflow as an example to show how Alluxio can help data access and management for deep learning frameworks.
