Alluxio also announced the expansion of its Asia-Pacific presence with the opening of an office in Beijing, China.

“To stay competitive, leading companies in all sectors are in their digitalization journey. In this, more and more enterprise architectures have shifted to hybrid and multi-cloud environments for data driven applications. While this shift allows for more flexibility and agility, it also means having to separate compute from storage, creating new challenges in how data needs to be managed and orchestrated across frameworks, clouds and storage systems,” said Haoyuan Li, Founder and CEO, Alluxio. “The funding will help us further catalyze our growth and global expansion plan as we help more businesses solve the most complex data challenges in today’s world.”

Alluxio enables data teams to separate compute from storage while bringing data closer to compute for analytics and AI/ML workloads spanning clouds, clusters, and regions. Alluxio’s intelligent data tiering and caching deliver better performance and reliability for customers. Eight of the ten largest Internet companies use Alluxio, including Facebook, Airbnb, Uber, Alibaba, Tencent, and Bytedance, with many more of the largest enterprises running Alluxio in production.
