IOStack: Software Defined Storage for Big DataIOStack: Software Defined Storage for Big Data
Prof. Pedro Garcia Lopez, University Rovira i Virgili (Spain)
In this talk, we will present the major achievements of the EU research
project IOStack (iostack.eu). IOStack software stack enables efficient
execution of virtualized analytics applications over virtualized storage
resources thanks to flexible, automated, and low cost data management models
based on software-defined storage (SDS). The clean separation of control
and data planes of SDS will offer novel programming tools to data engineers.
We will showcase in this talk the optimized integration of Apache Spark with
Object Storage systems like OpenStack Swift. Finally, we will also introduce
Data-driven Serverless Functions for Object Storage as novel programming
abstractions for data engineers.
