Adding Alluxio to Walden

4 minute read Published: 2022-04-18

We have added Alluxio to Walden, our reference implementation of a small data lake. Alluxio provides a unified view into one or more underlying storage sources, adding caching and translation on top of them. This can greatly improve overall Trino performance across queries, while also enabling support for external storage types like NFS that are not supported natively by Trino.
