The Apache® Software Foundation Receives Bitcoin Donation from Pineapple Fund Valued at $1M

Charitable donation helps underwrite the world's largest Open Source foundation, benefiting billions of users who depend on Apache's freely-available Open Source community-driven software.

Forest Hill, MD —18 January 2018— The Apache® Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has received a 88.34 Bitcoin (BTC) donation from the Pineapple Fund, valued at $1M at the time of the donation.

"Cryptocurrency is a fascinating way to support the ASF," said Kevin A. McGrail, ASF Vice President of Fundraising. "We look forward to using Pineapple Fund's donation to enhance our mission to provide Open Source software that is intrinsic to computing, from Web servers to smartphones to Cloud computing to the next evolutionary technology." 

The Pineapple Fund is a project donating 5500 BTC (~$86M) to various charities around the world, with the goal of making "bold and smart bets that will impact everyone in our world". https://pineapplefund.org/

In addition to the Pineapple Fund's charitable donation, the ASF receives financial support from corporate sponsors and individual donors. These essential funds help the ASF ensure that Apache software projects continue to be available to users around the world at absolutely no cost.

As a United States private, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, the ASF is funded through tax-deductible contributions from corporations, foundations, and private individuals. Their collective contributions offset day-to-day operating expenses such as bandwidth and connectivity, servers and hardware, legal and accounting services, brand management and public relations, general office expenditures, and support staff. Approximately 75% of the ASF's annual budget is dedicated to running critical infrastructure support services that keep Apache services running 24x7x365 at near 100% uptime.

There are two ways to help the ASF reach its financial goals:

  1. Individual Donations --for one-off or recurring gifts of any size, via credit card, PayPal, ACH, and more;

  2. ASF Sponsorship program --for organizations, individuals, foundations, and endowments contributing $6,000 or more.

For information on supporting the ASF, please visit http://apache.org/foundation/contributing.html

The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache® Trafodion™ as a Top-Level Project

Mature Big Data database management system for working in SQL at Apache Hadoop-scale levels in use China Mobile, China Unicom, Dell EMC, Esgyn Corporation, and Millersoft Limited, among others.

Forest Hill, MD —10 January 2018— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that Apache® Trafodion™ has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project (TLP), signifying that the project's community and products have been well-governed under the ASF's meritocratic process and principles.

Apache Trafodion extends Apache Hadoop to guarantee transactional integrity and operational workloads for new kinds of Big Data applications that run on Hadoop.

 "We are very excited to have been established as an Apache Top-Level Project," said Pierre Smits, Vice President of Apache Trafodion. "Graduation is a terrific milestone that culminates 2.5 years of contributions from around the globe to establishing a growing community committed to delivering a high-grade OLTP solution on top of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem."

Building on the scalability, elasticity, and flexibility of Hadoop, Trafodion (meaning "transactions" in Welsh) is the first integrated Open Source solution that delivers on the promise of integrated transactional and analytical systems (OLTP/OLAP) for Apache Hadoop. Trafodion's features include:
  • Fully functional ANSI SQL support, leveraging existing SQL skills;
  • Distributed ACID data protection, guaranteeing data consistency across multiple tables and rows;
  • Compile-Time and Run-Time Optimizers, delivering performance improvements for OLTP workloads;
  • Parallel-aware Query Optimizer, supporting large data sets;
  • Apache Spark integration, supporting streaming analysis;
  • Interoperability with existing Apache Hadoop tools and solutions, such as Hive, Ambari, Flume, Kafka, and Oozie; and 
  • Apache Hadoop and Linux distribution neutrality.

Trafodion originated at HP-IT in 2013, and was donated to the Apache Incubator in May 2015. The project has had four official releases since entering the Apache Incubator. 

Apache Trafodion is in use at China Mobile, China Unicom, Dell EMC, Esgyn Corporation, and Millersoft Limited, among others.

"As a member of the HP Core Team responsible for releasing Trafodion to The Apache Software Foundation, and responsible for the project’s name, I'm thrilled to see the Trafodion community be recognized with this major achievement. Congratulations to all who made it possible," said Ken Holt, COO at Esgyn Corporation. "Trafodion is the heart of EsgynDB, and the community is like its lifeblood — we at Esgyn are committed to continue to grow and support the community."

"Congratulations to the Trafodion community for becoming an Apache Top-Level Project," said Tianduo Gao, Senior Development Engineer of Software Technology (Suzhou) at China Mobile. "We are planning to use Trafodion to expand the business of China Mobile's Big Data platform: our data statistics of 4G real-time business in the country and provinces are more efficient than ever before."

"Becoming a core Apache Project is a major step forward for Trafodion. It will give Millersoft the confidence to introduce the technology to our Big Data clients," said Calum Miller, Director of Millersoft Limited. "Testing of our Open Source Data Vault engine running on top of Apache Trafodion is going well and we look forward to announcing a fully integrated product shortly."

"Apache Trafodion enhanced the operational efficiency of our Big Data platforms, and brought us better customer experience and broader application scenarios," said Charles Yu, Managing Director, Application Services at Dell EMC.

"Congratulations to Trafodion for officially becoming part of the Apache open source ecosystem," said Qingquan Gu, Senior Development Engineer of Internet of Things Marketing Service Center at China Unicom. "Using Trafodion provided China Unicom with the ability to build and integrate Big Data platforms, enhanced our operational efficiency, and brought us better customer experience."

"Becoming an Apache Top-Level Project is only the beginning," added Smits. "We are looking forward to growing the Trafodion community, reaching new adopters and contributors, and fostering a strong ecosystem around the project."

Availability and Oversight
Apache Trafodion software is released under the Apache License v2.0 and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project's day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases. For downloads, documentation, and ways to become involved with Apache Trafodion, visit http://trafodion.apache.org/ and https://twitter.com/Trafodion

About the Apache Incubator
The Apache Incubator is the entry path for projects and codebases wishing to become part of the efforts at The Apache Software Foundation. All code donations from external organizations and existing external projects wishing to join the ASF enter through the Incubator to: 1) ensure all donations are in accordance with the ASF legal standards; and 2) develop new communities that adhere to our guiding principles. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF. For more information, visit http://incubator.apache.org/

Established in 1999, the all-volunteer Foundation oversees more than 350 leading Open Source projects, including Apache HTTP Server --the world's most popular Web server software.
