RubiX is a light-weight data caching framework that can be used by a Big Data system that uses Hadoop filesystem interface. RubiX is designed to work with cloud storage systems such as AWS S3 and Azure Blob Storage. RubiX can be extended through plugins to support any engine that uses the Hadoop filesystem interface for access to data in any cloud object storage.


Rubix is only supported on Presto clusters that use GCP.
