In this talk we will focus on how Tachyon can help improve big data analytics (ad-hoc query) efficiency within Baidu.
Currently within Baidu, we have a production Tachyon cluster with 100 nodes and over 2PB of storage space – this cluster mainly serves as the cache layer for our big data analytics engine. In this talk, first we introduce the big data analytic infrastructure within Baidu. Then, we explain why we started using Tachyon a few months ago, as well as the problems encountered when we started using Tachyon. Next, we delve into the details of how Tachyon help accelerate our Big big data analytics pipeline at its current state. At the end, we discuss what new features we want to see and the plan to scale further.
