Integrating Under Storage Systems
Alluxio exposes an
interface to enable any under storage to integrate with Alluxio. The current available under storage
integrations can be found as submodules of the
underfs module. To create a new module, the
following components should be implemented:
An implementation of the UnderFileSystem interface, allowing Alluxio to communicate with the under storage.
A corresponding implementation of the UnderFileSystemFactory interface which allows Alluxio to match path URIs to the UnderFileSystem implementation.
A META-INF/services file to register the new integration
