  • Cloud native deployment – Spawning analytics clusters in AWS and GCP is now easier than ever. Based on Terraform, Alluxio now makes it easy to launch pre-configured clusters programmatically using a single command.
  • Sensitive data management – Alluxio now integrates with Vault for secure management of sensitive information for data access with dynamic infrastructure across multiple clouds and on-premises environments.
  • Simplified DevOps and system monitoring – Alluxio 2.4 adds several system enhancements to simplify and improve cluster management and maintenance.
