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

Open Source data lake technology for stream processing on top of Apache Hadoop in use at Alibaba, Tencent, Uber, and more.

Wakefield, MA —4 June 2020— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® Hudi™ as a Top-Level Project (TLP).

Apache Hudi (Hadoop Upserts Deletes and Incrementals) data lake technology enables stream processing on top of Apache Hadoop compatible cloud stores & distributed file systems. The project was originally developed at Uber in 2016 (code-named and pronounced "Hoodie"), open-sourced in 2017, and submitted to the Apache Incubator in January 2019.

"Learning and growing the Apache way in the incubator was a rewarding experience," said Vinoth Chandar, Vice President of Apache Hudi. "As a community, we are humbled by how far we have advanced the project together, while at the same time, excited about the challenges ahead."

Apache Hudi is used to manage petabyte-scale data lakes using stream processing primitives like upserts and incremental change streams on Apache Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) or cloud stores. Hudi data lakes provide fresh data while being an order of magnitude efficient over traditional batch processing. Features include:

  • Upsert/Delete support with fast, pluggable indexing
  • Transactionally commit/rollback data
  • Change capture from Hudi tables for stream processing
  • Support for Apache Hive, Apache Spark, Apache Impala and Presto query engines
  • Built-in data ingestion tool supporting Apache Kafka, Apache Sqoop and other common data sources
  • Optimize query performance by managing file sizes, storage layout
  • Fast row based ingestion format with async compaction into columnar format
  • Timeline metadata for audit tracking

Apache Hudi is in use at organizations such as Alibaba Group, EMIS Health, Linknovate, Tathastu.AI, Tencent, and Uber, and is supported as part of Amazon EMR by Amazon Web Services. A partial list of those deploying Hudi is available at https://hudi.apache.org/docs/powered_by.html

"We are very pleased to see Apache Hudi graduate to an Apache Top-Level Project. Apache Hudi is supported in Amazon EMR release 5.28 and higher, and enables customers with data in Amazon S3 data lakes to perform record-level inserts, updates, and deletes for privacy regulations, change data capture (CDC), and simplified data pipeline development," said Rahul Pathak, General Manager, Analytics, AWS. “We look forward to working with our customers and the Apache Hudi community to help advance the project."

"At Uber, Hudi powers one of the largest transactional data lakes on the planet in near real time to provide meaningful experiences to users worldwide," said Nishith Agarwal, member of the Apache Hudi Project Management Committee. "With over 150 petabytes of data and more than 500 billion records ingested per day, Uber’s use cases range from business critical workflows to analytics and machine learning."

"Using Apache Hudi, end-users can handle either read-heavy or write-heavy use cases, and Hudi will manage the underlying data stored on HDFS/COS/CHDFS using Apache Parquet and Apache Avro," said Felix Zheng, Lead of Cloud Real-Time Computing Service Technology at Tencent.

"As cloud infrastructure becomes more sophisticated, data analysis and computing solutions gradually begin to build data lake platforms based on cloud object storage and computing resources," said Li Wei, Technical Lead on Data Lake Analytics, at Alibaba Cloud. "Apache Hudi is a very good incremental storage engine that helps users manage the data in the data lake in an open way and accelerate users' computing and analysis."

"Apache Hudi is a key building block for the Hopsworks Feature Store, providing versioned features, incremental and atomic updates to features, and indexed time-travel queries for features," said Jim Dowling, CEO/Co-Founder at Logical Clocks. "The graduation of Hudi to a top-level Apache project is also the graduation of the open-source data lake from its earlier data swamp incarnation to a modern ACID-enabled, enterprise-ready data platform."

"Hudi's graduation to a top-level Apache project is a result of the efforts of many dedicated contributors in the Hudi community," said Jennifer Anderson, Senior Director of Platform Engineering at Uber. "Hudi is critical to the performance and scalability of Uber's big data infrastructure. We're excited to see it gain traction and achieve this major milestone."

"Thus far, Hudi has started a meaningful discussion in the industry about the wide gaps between data warehouses and data lakes. We have also taken strides to bridge some of them, with the help of the Apache community," added Chandar. "But, we are only getting started with our deeply technical roadmap. We certainly look forward to a lot more contributions and collaborations from the community to get there. Everyone’s invited!"

Catch Apache Hudi in action at Virtual Berlin Buzzwords 7-12 June 2020, as well as at MeetUps, and other events.

Availability and Oversight
Apache Hudi 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.

About the Apache Incubator
The Apache Incubator is the primary 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 enter the ASF 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/

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

Open Source Big Data workflow management system in use at Adobe, Airbnb, Etsy, Google, ING, Lyft, PayPal, Reddit, Square, Twitter, and United Airlines, among others.

Wakefield, MA —8 January 2019— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® Airflow™ as a Top-Level Project (TLP).

Apache Airflow is a flexible, scalable workflow automation and scheduling system for authoring and managing Big Data processing pipelines of hundreds of petabytes. Graduation from the Apache Incubator as a Top-Level Project signifies that the Apache Airflow community and products have been well-governed under the ASF's meritocratic process and principles.

"Since its inception, Apache Airflow has quickly become the de-facto standard for workflow orchestration," said Bolke de Bruin, Vice President of Apache Airflow. "Airflow has gained adoption among developers and data scientists alike thanks to its focus on configuration-as-code. That has gained us a community during incubation at the ASF that not only uses Apache Airflow but also contributes back. This reflects Airflow’s ease of use, scalability, and power of our diverse community; that it is embraced by enterprises and start-ups alike, allows us to now graduate to a Top-Level Project."

Apache Airflow is used to easily orchestrate complex computational workflows. Through smart scheduling, database and dependency management, error handling and logging, Airflow automates resource management, from single servers to large-scale clusters. Written in Python, the project is highly extensible and able to run tasks written in other languages, allowing integration with commonly used architectures and projects such as AWS S3, Docker, Apache Hadoop HDFS, Apache Hive, Kubernetes, MySQL, Postgres, Apache Zeppelin, and more. Airflow originated at Airbnb in 2014 and was submitted to the Apache Incubator March 2016.

Apache Airflow is in use at more than 200 organizations, including Adobe, Airbnb, Astronomer, Etsy, Google, ING, Lyft, NYC City Planning, Paypal, Polidea, Qubole, Quizlet, Reddit, Reply, Solita, Square, Twitter, and United Airlines, among others. A list of known users can be found at https://github.com/apache/incubator-airflow#who-uses-apache-airflow

"Adobe Experience Platform is built on cloud infrastructure leveraging open source technologies such as Apache Spark, Kafka, Hadoop, Storm, and more," said Hitesh Shah, Principal Architect of Adobe Experience Platform. "Apache Airflow is a great new addition to the ecosystem of orchestration engines for Big Data processing pipelines. We have been leveraging Airflow for various use cases in Adobe Experience Cloud and will soon be looking to share the results of our experiments of running Airflow on Kubernetes." 

"Our clients just love Apache Airflow. Airflow has been a part of all our Data pipelines created in past 2 years acting as the ring-master and taming our Machine Learning and ETL Pipelines," said Kaxil Naik, Data Engineer at Data Reply. "It has helped us create a Single View for our client's entire data ecosystem. Airflow's Data-aware scheduling and error-handling helped automate entire report generation process reliably without any human-intervention. It easily integrates with Google Cloud (and other major cloud providers) as well and allows non-technical personnel to use it without a steep learning curve because of Airflow’s configuration-as-a-code paradigm."

"With over 250 PB of data under management, PayPal relies on workflow schedulers such as Apache Airflow to manage its data movement needs reliably," said Sid Anand, Chief Data Engineer at PayPal. "Additionally, Airflow is used for a range of system orchestration needs across many of our distributed systems: needs include self-healing, autoscaling, and reliable [re-]provisioning."

"Since our offering of Apache Airflow as a service in Sept 2016, a lot of big and small enterprises have successfully shifted all of their workflow needs to Airflow," said Sumit Maheshwari, Engineering Manager at Qubole. "At Qubole, not only are we a provider, but also a big consumer of Airflow as well. For example, our whole Insight and Recommendations platform is built around Airflow only, where we process billions of events every month from hundreds of enterprises and generate insights for them on big data solutions like Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, and Presto. We are very impressed by the simplicity of Airflow and ease at which it can be integrated with other solutions like clouds, monitoring systems or various data sources."

"At ING, we use Apache Airflow to orchestrate our core processes, transforming billions of records from across the globe each day," said Rob Keevil, Data Analytics Platform Lead at ING WB Advanced Analytics. "Its feature set, Open Source heritage and extensibility make it well suited to coordinate the wide variety of batch processes we operate, including ETL workflows, model training, integration scripting, data integrity testing, and alerting. We have played an active role in Airflow development from the onset, having submitted hundreds of pull requests to ensure that the community benefits from the Airflow improvements created at ING.  We are delighted to see Airflow graduate from the Apache Incubator, and look forward to see where this exciting project will be taken in future!"

"We saw immediately the value of Apache Airflow as an orchestrator when we started contributing and using it," said Jarek Potiuk, Principal Software Engineer at Polidea. "Being able to develop and maintain the whole workflow by engineers is usually a challenge when you have a huge configuration to maintain. Airflow allows your DevOps to have a lot of fun and still use the standard coding tools to evolve your infrastructure. This is 'infrastructure as a code' at its best."

"Workflow orchestration is essential to the (big) data era that we live in," added de Bruin. "The field is evolving quite fast and the new data thinking is just starting to make an impact. Apache Airflow is a child of the data era and therefore very well positioned, and is also young so a lot of development can still happen. Airflow can use bright minds from scientific computing, enterprises, and start-ups to further improve it. Join the community, it is easy to hop on!"
