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

Open Source Big Data MPP analytical database engine in use at Baidu, JD, Meituan, Sina, Tencent, and Xiaomi, among others.

Wilmington, DE —16 June 2022— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® Doris™ as a Top-Level Project (TLP).

Apache Doris is a modern, easy-to-use MPP (massively parallel processing) analytical database system that provides sub-second queries and efficient real-time data analysis. The project was originally developed at Baidu as "Palo", was open-sourced in 2017, and entered the Apache Incubator in July 2018.

"We are very proud that Doris graduated from the Apache Incubator —it is an important milestone," said Mingyu Chen, Vice President of Apache Doris. "Under the guidance of our incubator mentors, we learned how to successfully develop our project and community the Apache Way. We have achieved great growth during the incubation process."

Apache Doris is a database system for OLAP (online analytical processing) scenarios. It integrates Apache Impala, Google Mesa, and state-of-art vectorization technologies to provide sub-second queries and efficient real-time data analysis. Apache Doris meets rigorous data analysis demands in many business fields that include multi-dimensional reporting, user portrait, ad-hoc query, and real-time dashboards. Features include:

  • High performance: Use column storage, index, parallel execution, vectorization technology, query optimizer and many other technologies to achieve fast query response.
  • Easy-to-use: ANSI SQL syntax support. It can be easily scaled horizontally, and the data replica is automatically repaired and balanced. Does not rely on third-party services.
  • Pre-aggregation: Provides multiple pre-aggregation data models and ensures data consistency and automatic query routing.
  • Big Data ecosystem integration: Supports the connection with Apache Flink, Apache Hive, Apache Hudi, Apache Iceberg, Apache Spark, and ElasticSearch, among other systems.


Developers using Apache Doris enjoy its simplicity in deploying to hundreds of terabytes, and the ability to meet a variety of data-serving requirements in a single system.

Doris is in use at more than 500 enterprises globally, across a variety of industries such as finance, energy, manufacturing, and telecommunications, among other fields. Many of China’s top 50 Internet companies use Apache Doris, including 360, Baidu, ByteDance, JD, Kwai, Meituan, Netease, Sina, Tencent, and Xiaomi, among others. 

The project recently celebrated the release of Apache Doris 1.0, its eighth release whilst undergoing development in the Apache Incubator (along with six Connector releases), and also welcomed its 300th contributor. 

"Graduation is the starting point of a new journey," added Chen. "Our many plans for the future include continuing to develop Apache Doris, with new contributors and open source technology enthusiasts joining us to help grow our project and community together in the Apache Way."

Catch Apache Doris in action at ApacheCon Asia 2022, taking place 29-31 July https://www.apachecon.com/acasia2022/ .

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® AGE™ as a Top-Level Project

Open Source PostgreSQL extension for graph database functionality in use in government agencies, research and education institutions, utility providers, and more.

Wilmington, DE —8 June 2022— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® AGE™ as a Top-Level Project (TLP).

Apache AGE ("A Graph Extension") is a PostgreSQL extension that provides graph database functionality. The project was originally developed in 2019 as an extension to AgensGraph (Bitnine Global's multi-model database fork of PostgreSQL), and entered the Apache Incubator in April 2020.

"It is incredible to see how far the AGE project has come to its maturity by graduating as a Top-Level Project from the Apache Incubator, which demonstrates the project's ability to self-govern, and furthermore to be a part of the broader ASF community," said Eya Badal Abdisho, Vice President of Apache AGE. "With AGE, our goal is to provide a multi-model database that is designed to be simple and user-friendly, which simultaneously supports the relational and graph data model. AGE enables users to integrate the legacy relational data model and the flexible graph data model in one database."

AGE is a PostgreSQL extension that adds graph query functionality to Postgresql. Through using the Cypher query language in accordance with the openCypher specification, users can access, store and query graph data using PostgreSQL. Users may read and write nodes and edges stored in Postgres, as well as use various algorithms such as variable length edge traversal to analyze data in AGE. Other features include:

  • Support for openCypher query language
  • Hybrid querying using SQL and Cypher
  • Querying multiple graphs
  • Property indexes on both vertices and edges
  • Integration with Postgres' existing features


Hybrid queries are queries using both openCypher and SQL together. These queries allow data to move between the regular relational database and the graph representation that AGE provides.

AGE is in use across a variety of user organizations, including government agencies, research and education institutions, and utility providers, among others.

"We are very pleased that Apache AGE is the first formal graph database project of the Apache Software Foundation to achieve top-level graduation. We believe that it is a result that proves the development of the only graph database extension based on RDB," said Cheolsun Kang, CEO of Bitnine Global. "In the future, Bitnine Global will continue to support the development of Apache AGE. We are advancing our product by developing a service subscription model based on Apache AGE product support."

"I have been advising my clients to watch this space. The potential of Apache AGE, as a multi-model database, to fill an unmet ‘best of both worlds’ niche was evident," said Jasper Blues, CEO of Liberation Data. "With the community behind it, I’m not at all surprised in the way that AGE has blazed ahead towards that prospective future.

Congratulations to the Apache AGE community on the successes to date! With this graduation milestone, I’m proud to recommend AGE to a number of clients in the SE Asia/Oceania region. For them, a CYPHER-compatible ACID graphDB built on a rock solid foundation is perfect for their business cases."

"Postgres’s fundamental architecture has created a rich ecosystem of extensions and made Postgres the de-facto choice for developers and enterprises looking for a next-generation flagship data platform. AGE continues to build on that tradition and adds powerful graph analytics functionality to the traditional relational data platforms," said Mehboob Alam, Postgres community advocate. "Melding traditional analytics and real-time graph intelligence is going to be a game-changer and AGE will be instrumental in this exciting future."

The project recently released Apache AGE v1.0.0-incubating, the sixth release whilst undergoing development in the Apache Incubator. Future releases of Apache AGE will support PostgreSQL 12 and higher, more key features from AgensGraph, and will be further improved to be a compatibility extension for all relational DB, starting with integration into MySQL and MariaDB.

"Graduating as an Apache Top-Level Project is only the beginning, our journey continues through the excellent efforts of the greater Apache AGE community," added Badal Abdisho. "Join our community. We always welcome new additions and contributions to the Apache AGE project to help data communities explore and utilize the benefits of graph technologies, under the Apache Way."

Catch Apache AGE in action at ApacheCon Asia 2022 (29-31 July; https://apachecon.com/acasia2022/), and PostgreSQL Conference Europe (25-28 October; https://2022.pgconf.eu/)

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

Open Source universal Big Data and Machine Learning resource scheduler in use at Alibaba, Apple, Cloudera, Lyft, Visa, and Zillow, among others.

Wilmington, DE —16 May 2022— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® YuniKorn™ as a Top-Level Project (TLP).

Apache YuniKorn is a cloud-native, standalone Big Data and Machine Learning resource scheduler for batch jobs and long-running services on large scale distributed systems. The project was originally developed at Cloudera in March 2019, entered the Apache Incubator in January 2020, and graduated as a Top-Level Project in March 2022.

"The Apache YuniKorn community is striving together to solve the resource scheduling problems on the cloud," said Weiwei Yang, Vice President of Apache YuniKorn. "It's really great to see the Apache Way shine in the incubating process of YuniKorn. We are lucky to have such an open, collaborative, and diverse community, which is sympathetic and cares about everyone's success. This motivates us to keep evolving and gets better every day."

Apache YuniKorn natively supports Big Data application workloads and mixed workloads, and provides a unified, cross-platform scheduling experience. Features include:

  • Cloud native —runs on-premise and in a variety of public cloud environments; maximizes resource elasticity with better throughput.

  • Hierarchical resource queues —efficiently manages cluster resources; provides the ability to control the resource consumption for each tenant.

  • Application-aware scheduling —recognizes users, applications, and queues; schedules according to submission order, priority, resource usage, and more.

  • Job ordering —built-in robust scheduling capabilities; supports fairness-based cross-queue preemption, hierarchies, pluggable node sorting policies, preemption, and more.

  • Central management console —monitors performance across different tenants; one-stop-dashboard tracks resource utilization for managed nodes, clusters, applications and queues.

  • Efficiency —reduces resource fragmentation and proactively triggers up-scaling; cloud elasticity lowers overall operational costs.

In addition, the Project has announced the release of Apache YuniKorn v1.0, the fifth update since entering the Apache Incubator. Improvements include: 

  • Decreased memory and cpu usage
  • Extended metrics and diagnostics information
  • New deployment model supporting future upgrades
  • Technical preview of the plugin deployment mode

Optimized to run Apache Spark on Kubernetes (open source software container orchestration system), Apache YuniKorn’s performance makes it an optional replacement to the Kubernetes default scheduler. Apache YuniKorn excelled in benchmark tests with other schedulers in resource sharing, resource fairness, preemption, gang scheduling, and bin packing categories, with throughput exceeding 610 allocations per second across 2,000 nodes. 

YuniKorn is in use at Alibaba, Apple, Cloudera, Lyft, Visa, and Zillow, among others.

"We're thrilled to see this offering come to fruition. Apache YuniKorn powers Apache Spark workloads for Cloudera Data Engineering (CDE), a key Kubernetes-based service supporting the Cloudera Data Platform," said Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli, Senior Director, Engineering at Cloudera and former PMC chair of Apache Hadoop. "As part of Cloudera’s Public and Private Cloud offerings, Apache YuniKorn adds tremendous flexibility and control when running large-scale analytics, enabling customers to better optimize the performance and value of their deployments."

"Apache YuniKorn is an essential infra service for bringing Big Data/ML workloads onto the cloud," said Chunde Ren, Engineering Manager at Alibaba Big Data Open-source team. "YuniKorn brings better scheduling capabilities, performance, elasticity, and usability for running workloads on Kubernetes, especially for Big Data and Machine Learning workloads, which benefits many users on the cloud. It's a great pleasure for us to have participated in the YuniKorn community since its inception and to see it grow up to be a Top-Level Project."

"Apache YuniKorn is becoming a popular choice for those who want to run Big Data workloads on Kubernetes, with more use cases developing," added Yang. "We welcome all who are interested to join the YuniKorn community and work with us on solving these challenging problems."

Catch Apache YuniKorn in action at Kubernetes Batch + HPC Day Europe (17 May 2022 in Valencia, Spain https://sched.co/10F0t ) and Spark AI Summit 2022 (27-30 June in San Francisco and online https://databricks.com/dataaisummit/north-america-2022/agenda/?sessionid=1388 ).

Availability and Oversight
Apache YuniKorn 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/ 

About The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)
Established in 1999, The Apache Software Foundation is the world’s largest Open Source foundation, stewarding 227M+ lines of code and providing more than $22B+ worth of software to the public at 100% no cost.
