The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Lens™ as a Top-Level Project
Forest Hill, MD –26 August 2015– 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™ Lens™ 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 Lens is a Unified Analytics platform. It provides an optimal execution environment for analytical queries in the unified view. Apache Lens aims to cut the Data Analytics silos by providing a single view of data across multiple tiered data stores.
"Incubating Apache Lens has been an amazing experience at the ASF," said Amareshwari Sriramadasu, Vice President of Apache Lens. "Apache Lens solves a very critical problem in Big Data analytics space with respect to end users. It enables business users, analysts, data scientists, developers and other users to do complex analysis with ease, without knowing the underlying data layout."
"Apache Lens is a fantastic project that enables simplified access to Big Data analytics," said Sharad Agarwal, member of the Apache Lens PMC. "I am very proud and thrilled to see it graduate as a Top-Level Apache project, and, being involved with the project since its inception, it's exciting to see its community grow."
By providing an online analytical processing (OLAP) model on top of data, Lens seamlessly integrates Apache Hadoop with traditional data warehouses to appear as one. It also provides query history and statistics for queries running in the system along with query life cycle management.
"The query service for our data platform is built on top of Apache Lens," said Gaurav Bhalotia, Vice President of Data Platform at Flipkart. "Lens gives us a powerful and simple abstraction to query data consistently across tiers and storage stacks. We at Flipkart are very excited to see it added as a Top-Level Apache project."
"I am really thrilled to see Lens graduating so soon after getting incubated in ASF," said Mohit Saxena, Founder and CTO of InMobi. "Lens is really a perfect example how technology can be leveraged to remove complexity of traditional analytical platforms and provide a simple abstraction for end user. Earlier our reporting and data retrieval system were married to a compute and even storage engine and user had to juggle for results, Hence the need of something like Lens arises and I am so proud that lens has solved a big problem where user can simply use one query layer at the top while lens does all heavy lifting below it and I simply hope this is just the beginning and it will only thrive with the help of vibrant Apache community. God speed."
"Apache Lens has been a truly stellar example of what an incubating project should be," said Jakob Homan, ASF Member and Apache Lens Project Mentor. "It's grown very quickly and will be a tremendously useful part of the Apache Big Data ecosystem."

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/

The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Parquet™ as a Top-Level Project
Open Source storage format for the Apache™ Hadoop® ecosystem in use at Cloudera, NASA, Netflix, Stripe, and Twitter, among other organizations
Forest Hill, MD --27 April 2015-- 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™ Parquet™ 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.
- processing frameworks (MapReduce, Apache Spark, Scalding, Cascading, Crunch, Kite)
- data models (Apache Avro, Apache Thrift, Protocol Buffers, POJOs)
- query engines (Apache Hive, Impala, HAWQ, Apache Drill, Apache Tajo, Apache Pig, Presto, Apache Spark SQL)
"At Twitter, Parquet has helped us scale our big data usage by in some cases reducing storage requirements by one third on large datasets as well as scan and deserialization time. This translated into hardware savings as well as reduced latency for accessing the data. Furthermore, Parquet being integrated with so many tools creates opportunities and flexibility regarding query engines," said Chris Aniszczyk, Head of Open Source at Twitter. "Finally, it's just fantastic to see it graduate to a top-level project and we look forward to further collaborating with the Apache Parquet community to continually improve performance."

The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Falcon™ as a Top-Level Project
"Graduation of Apache Falcon's is a proud moment for the community who came together to solve a very relevant problem of data processing and management in Hadoop ecosystem," said Mohit Saxena, CTO and co-founder InMobi, one of the largest users of Apache Falcon. "I also want to applaud the efforts of contributors, committers and user community who actively pitched in the development of Falcon and it is only because of their conviction and efforts project has graduated. I am hoping promotion of Falcon to TLP will increase the contribution and adoption across the community and help Falcon achieve newer heights."
Falcon represents a significant step forward in the Hadoop platform by enabling easy data management. Users of Falcon platform simply define infrastructure endpoints, data sets and processing rules declaratively. These declarative configurations are expressed in such a way that the dependencies between these configured entities are explicitly described. This information about inter-dependencies between various entities allows Falcon to orchestrate and manage various data management functions.
"Falcon has enabled our team to incrementally build up a complex pipeline comprised of over 90 processes and 200 feeds that would have been very challenging with Apache Oozie alone," said programmer Michael Miklavcic.
"I began to work on Falcon in my spare time for fun, but it quickly became interesting in relation to my job at Talend", said Jean-Baptise Onofré, Vice President of Apache Karaf and Software Architect at Talend. "As Talend DataIntegration provides features like CDC (Change Data Capture), and data notification, we are in the process of integrating Apache Falcon in Talend products."
"Apache Falcon's graduation is a milestone for the project and a credit to its contributors. Its open, collaborative development has effected a robust community around software essential to the Hadoop ecosystem," said Chris Douglas, Falcon incubation mentor at the ASF. "By becoming a Top-Level Project, the ASF recognizes its demonstrated ability to self-govern. Congratulations to Falcon's users, to its contributors, and particularly to its new Project Management Committee on this achievement."

Not A Mirage: The Apache Software Foundation's official number of projects and initiatives "grows overnight" with census adjustment
Over the past 15 years, The Apache Software Foundation has been going from strength to strength. It's truly impressive to see all that our global community has achieved.
In documenting the ASF's developments, I've always measured our growth across two metrics: people and projects.
Up until now, I have stated that there were more than 200 projects and initiatives at the ASF. To me, "projects and initiatives" = software projects (Top-Level Projects (TLPs) + podlings undergoing development at the Apache Incubator + Apache Labs (our innovation "sandbox" to test technical concepts), plus various community initiatives such as ApacheCon. I never counted sub-projects as part of that census, as we always had just a few handfuls scattered amongst a small number of TLPs.
This audit surprised me, as it had shown that we did not have a "few handfuls" of sub-projects as I had projected, but rather *110* sub-projects! They had grown into an entity unto itself that must be recognized in our official count.
So there are currently 345 Open Source software projects and initiatives at the ASF. Add to that the ASF's special committees and activities such as Infrastructure, Travel Assistance, Security Team, Legal Affairs, Brand Management, and ApacheCon: we've exceeded 350.
With this knowledge, I stand corrected, even more impressed, and have adjusted our records accordingly. Thanks again, Daniel!
