Apache CarbonData is pleased to announce the release of the Version 1.1.0 in The Apache Software Foundation (ASF). CarbonData is a new BigData native file format for faster interactive query using advanced columnar storage, index, compression, and ... [More] encoding techniques to improve computing efficiency. In turn it will help to speedup queries an order of magnitude faster over PetaBytes of data. We encourage everyone to download the release, and feedback through the CarbonData user mailing lists! This release notes provides information on the new features, improvements, and bug fixes of this release. What’s New in Version 1.1.0? In this version of CarbonData, following are the new features added for performance improvements, compatibility, and usability of CarbonData. 1.Introducing V3 Data Format Benefits: 1)Improves the query performance by ~20% to 50%. 2)Improves the sequential IO by using larger size blocklets, this helps in reading larger data at once to memory. 3)Introduced pages with size of 32000 each for every column inside the blocklets, and min/max is maintained for each page to improve the filter queries. 4)Improved compression/decompression for row pages. 2.Alter Table Support Benefits: 1)Renaming of existing table. 2)Adding a new column for existing table. 3)Removing of new column for existing table. 4)Upcasting of data type from INT to BIGINT or decimal precision from lower to higher. 3.Batch Sort Support for Data Loading Benefits: Batch sort makes sort step as non blocking step, and capable of sorting whole batch in memory and converts to CarbonData file. 4.Improved Single Pass Benefits: Improved Single Pass load by upgrading to latest Netty framework, and launched dictionary client for each loading thread. 5.Range Filter Support Benefits: Range filters combines the between filters to one filter to improve the filter performance. 6.Improvements on Large Cluster Benefits:No more parallel loading of dictionary metadata in executor. Now dictionary metadata is loaded only once after all tasks inside executor uses it. Minimized file operations to avoid multiple namenode calls during query Please find the detailed JIRA list : https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=12320220&version=12338987 [Less]

Open Source Big Data distributed stream processing framework in production at Intuit, LinkedIn, Netflix, Optimizely, Redfin, and Uber, among other organizations. Forest Hill, MD —15 May 2017— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the ... [More] all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today the availability of Apache® Samza™  v0.13, the latest version of the Open Source Big Data distributed stream processing framework. An Apache Top-Level Project (TLP) since January 2015, Samza is designed to provide support for fault-tolerant, large scale stream processing. Developers use Apache Samza to write applications that consume streams of data and to help organizations understand and respond to their data in real-time. Apache Samza offers a unified API to process streaming data from pub-sub messaging systems like Apache Kafka and batch data from Apache Hadoop. "The latest 0.13 release takes Apache Samza's data processing capabilities to the next level with multiple new features," said Yi Pan, Vice President of Apache Samza. "It also improves the simplicity and portability of real-time applications." Apache Samza powers several real-time data processing needs including realtime analytics on user data, message routing, combating fraud, anomaly detection, performance monitoring, real-time communication, and more. Apache Samza can process up to 1.1 million messages per second on a single machine. v0.13 highlights include: A higher level API that developers can use this to express complex processing pipelines on streams more concisely; Support for running Samza applications as a lightweight embedded library without relying on YARN; Support for flexible deployment options;  Support for rolling upgrade of running Samza applications; Improved monitoring and failure detection using a built-in heart beating mechanism; Enabling better integrations with other cluster-manager frameworks and environments; and Several bug-fixes that improve reliability, stability and robustness of data processing, Organizations such as Intuit, LinkedIn, Netflix, Optimizely, Redfin, TripAdvisor, and Uber rely on Apache Samza to power complex data architectures that process billions of events each day. A list of user organizations is available at https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SAMZA/Powered+By "Apache Samza is a highly performant stream/data processing system that has been battle tested over the years of powering mission critical applications in a wide range of businesses," said Kartik Paramasivam, Head of Streams Infrastructure, and Director of Engineering at LinkedIn. "With this 0.13 release, the power of Samza is no longer limited to YARN based topologies. It can now be used in any hosting environment. In addition, it now has a new higher level API that makes it significantly easier to create arbitrarily complex processing pipelines." "Apache Samza has been powering near real-time use cases at Uber for the last year and a half," said Chinmay Soman, Staff Software Engineer at Uber. "This ranges from analytical use cases such as understanding business metrics, feature extraction for machine learning as well as some critical applications such as Fraud detection, Surge pricing and Intelligent promotions. Samza has been proven to be robust in production and is currently processing about billions of messages per day, accounting for 100s of TB of data flowing through the system."  "At Optimizely, we have built the world’s leading experimentation platform, which ingests billions of click-stream events a day from millions of visitors for analysis," said Vignesh Sukumar, Senior Engineering Manager at Optimizely. "Apache Samza has been a great asset to Optimizely's Event ingestion pipeline allowing us to perform large scale, real time stream computing such as aggregations (e.g. session computations) and data enrichment on a multiple billion events/day scale. The programming model, durability and the close integration with Apache Kafka fit our needs perfectly." "It has been a phenomenal experience engaging with this vibrant international community of users and contributors, and I look forward to our continued growth. It is a great time to be involved in the project and we welcome new contributors to the Samza community," added Pan. Catch Apache Samza in action at Apache: Big Data, 16-18 May 2017 in Miami, FL http://apachecon.com/ , where the community will be showcasing how Samza simplifies stream processing at scale.

We released the long-awaited Apache Ignite version 2.0 on May 5. The community spent almost a year incorporating tremendous changes to the legacy Apache Ignite 1.x architecture. And all of that effort paid off. Our collective blood, sweat (and ... [More] perhaps even a few tears) opened up new and exciting opportunities for the Apache Ignite project. Have I piqued your interest about this new release yet? Let's walk through some of the main new features that have appeared under the hood of Apache Ignite 2.0. Reengineered Off-Heap Memory Architecture. The platform’s entire memory architecture was reengineered from scratch. In a nutshell, all of the data and indexes are now stored in a completely new manageable off-heap memory that has no issues with memory fragmentation, accelerates SQL Grid significantly and helps your application easily tolerate Java GC pauses. Take a peek at the illustration below and try to guess what’s changed. Afterward, please read this documentation to see if your eye caught everything that’s new. Here’s something extremely noteworthy: the architecture now integrates seamlessly with disk drives. Why do we care about this? Stay tuned! Data Definition Language. This release introduces support for Data Definition Language (DDL) as a part of its SQL Grid functionality. Now you can define -- and, what’s more important, alter -- indexes in runtime without the need to restart your cluster. Apache Ignite users have long awaited this feature! Even more exciting news: users can leverage this with standard SQL commands like CREATE or DROP index. This is only the beginning! Go to this page to learn more about current DDL support. Machine Learning Grid Beta - Distributed Algebra. Apache Ignite is about more than in-memory storage. And it’s not just one more product for distributed computations or real-time streaming. It's much, much more than that. It's a hot blend of well-integrated distributed and highly concurrent modules that turned Apache Ignite into what is today: A robust data-fabric and framework with the goal of making your application thrive and outperform even the best of expectations. But there was one thing missing until now. Drumroll, please: machine-learning support! With Apache Ignite 2.0 you can check project’s own distributed algebra implementation. The distributed algebra is the foundation of the entire component. And soon you can expect to get distributed versions of widely used regression algorithms, decision trees and more. Spring Data Integration. Spring Data integration allows the interaction of an Apache Ignite cluster using the well-known and highly adopted Spring Data Framework. You can connect to the cluster by means of Spring Data repositories and start executing distributed SQL queries as well as simple CRUD operations. Rocket MQ Are you using Rocket MQ in your project and need to push data from the Rocket to Ignite? Here is an easy solution. Hibernate 5. Hibernate L2 cache users have been anticipating support of Hibernate 5 on Apache Ignite for quite a long time. Apache Ignite 2.0 grants this desire. The integration now supports Hibernate 5 and contains a number of bug fixes and improvements. Ignite.NET Ignite.NET has been enhanced with an addition of a plugin system that allows the writing and embedding 3rd party .NET components into Ignite.NET. Ignite.C++ The Ignite.C++ part of the community finally came up with a way to execute arbitrary C++ code on remote cluster machines. This approach was initially tested for continuous queries. You can now register continuous queries' remote filters on any cluster node you like. Going forward you can expect support for the Ignite.C++ compute grid and more. Want to learn more? Please join me June 7 for a webinar titled, “Apache® Ignite™: What’s New in Version 2.0.” I hope to see you there! P.S. Just in case you can’t wait until June…  here's a full list of the changes inside Apache Ignite 2.0. [Less]

When the ASF incorporated in 1999, the Foundation's core membership comprised 21 individuals who oversaw the progress of the Apache HTTP Server. This group grew with Committers --developers who contributed code, patches, or documentation, and were subsequently granted access by the Membership: to "commit" or "write" (contribute) directly to the code repository; the right to vote on community-related decisions; and the ability propose an active user for Committership. Those Committers who demonstrate merit in the Foundation’s growth, evolution, and progress are nominated for ASF Membership by existing members. This election brings the total number of ASF Members to 684 today. Individuals elected as ASF Members legally serve as the "shareholders" of the Foundation https://www.apache.org/foundation/governance/members.html For more information on how the ASF works, visit http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html . # # #  [Less]

by Tom Barber When Sally asked for volunteers to help with a blog post series "Success at Apache" I realised there was a very human story to tell about how the ASF helped me get to where I am today and hopefully where I'll go tomorrow. Over ... [More] the years I have worked on and run a number of Open Source projects whilst working with an awful lot of Open Source software. One day I was browsing Slashdot as you do, yeah I know a lot of people disparage it, but it's an awfully hard habit to kick, and without it I wouldn't have got involved in the ASF so I owe it a lot. Anyway, one day when browsing Slashdot I saw this article (https://it.slashdot.org/story/11/01/08/1544204/apache-to-steward-nasa-built-middleware), I had been working in the Open Source business intelligence industry for a few years at that point and I spent a lot of time hacking around and managing data systems, so I wondered how I could get some help out of OODT (http://oodt.apache.org/). Also as a kid I had always loved everything about space, I was a huge Apollo fan, had a small telescope, went to the total eclipse in the UK in 1999 and so on. I thought this OODT project would be a fun way for me to chat nonsense to a few NASA employees, find out how they did stuff and do a bit of Open Source hacking on the side, which would at least let me participate in some NASA related development work, and so it began. For those of you who haven't heard of Apache OODT it is a middleware layer for building data systems. Originally written by NASA JPL and then Open Sourced to The Apache Software Foundation it provides data ingest capabilities, metadata extraction, data workflows and resource management. I started by asking pretty dumb questions on the IRC channel, posting stuff on the mailing lists and trying to figure out how this reasonably expansive stack of software even operated. Chris Mattmann and Sean Kelly guided me through the opening foray into OODT development and education. Eventually, having submitted a few bug fixes, I volunteered to be a release manager for an OODT release and that got me more involved. Not too long after Sean asked if I fancied having a go at being the project chair, which I duly accepted. Behind the scenes cogs were turning and in a matter of a few weeks, I'd gone from a committer and PMC member to Chair to ASF member, it was certainly a hectic time, trying to keep up with all the new things I had to do, mailing lists to follow and so on, but what a period in my ASF experience, lots of fun! That was just over 2 years ago and I'm still happily stewarding the OODT folks and keeping the cogs turning, releases happening and Jira tickets triaged. Alongside that it is truly an honour to be involved with the ASF as a member and although the politics can get tedious, the foundation is an amazing place for people to learn to work on great software as part of a distributed team. 18 months ago I was getting a little jaded with the monotony of the BI work I was doing, there are only so many sales databases and budget reports one guy can take and after being in BI 8 or so years I felt like it was time for a change of scenery, I just didn't know what. So I blasted out an email to 10 or so people I knew or had had some contact with over the years who might be able to give me a job, or know someone who was looking for a Java developer, BI guy, Open Source advocate, that type of thing. I'd included some OODT folks on my email, not because I thought there was a chance of a job using it, but just in case they happened to know someone out in California needing some remote help. Everyone said no, except Chris Mattmann who said if I could hold on a few months he might have something for me at NASA! That response floored me, I'd never even considered that as an option and knew that with a young family it would be highly unlikely I'd be able to move to California, so I played along assuming it would fall through. But the as the process dragged on and contracts got drawn up we got closer and closer to it becoming real and the excitement grew, there was the tangible possibility of me fulfilling at least a bit of a life long dream, no I wouldn't be an astronaut, but there was the chance of employment by NASA. Eventually 6 months or so later, the paperwork was signed and I joined the ranks at NASA JPL, working as an Apache OODT and devops guy. What is great is that having 10 years of business and development experience, I feel like I can very much make a positive contribution to the team, and in part that is down to what I have learnt developing and coding at the ASF. It has been an amazing experience  and a wonderful 12 months. I never dreamt an opportunity like that would arise and it is 100% down to the great work the ASF does in stewarding new projects through the incubation process and into mainstream adoption. Without the ASF I would likely still be a BI guy dealing with run of the mill data warehouses, instead I work on Genomics Search Engines, help hunt criminals on the dark web and a host of other stuff. Life sometimes throws you an opportunity that you don't expect and the ASF certainly facilitated that. Last week I was in Pasadena, visiting the JPL facility and getting the guided tour, and doing a bit of work. It was amazing talking to such a dedicated group of people who clearly have a big passion for what they do. Getting to see their mission control, the mars rovers and various satellite mock ups was awe inspiring but what excited me the most was getting to sit down and pick the brains of people with whom I have worked with at the ASF for years yet not met in the flesh. Finally making that human connection means a lot. What the ASF offers here is the ability to learn to work as a distributed team without the pressures of the "real world". Everyone at the ASF, pretty much, is a volunteer and other volunteers recognise that, and so it reduces the pressure, but whilst reducing the pressure it teaches you how to make binding decisions as a disparate group, how to keep records and how to ship good quality code whilst living in different timezones. At the ASF some of us might meet once or twice a year at ApacheCon, Fosdem or elsewhere, but largely all communications is done via mailing list. This can cause issues when people "just want to get it done" but it also provides an immutable record of what is going on in a project and who said what. This proves equally useful out in the "real world" where you want to track business decisions or look up historical records of why a certain choice was made. Also dealing with people who you don't work with on a daily basis also helps you think more about your communication style, what is fine to say and what isn't and also how you structure your communications, which is also very important in a business setting. Do you know the person? Do they understand your nuances? Is English their native language? etc The other thing I find the ASF offers is understanding. Last year I was diagnosed with Aspergers at the age of 33, which is pretty late. What is nice is that generally, people like to listen, and if you have something that affects your personal or professional life, people who you've met at the ASF will often lend an understanding ear to allow you to off load or discuss something completely unrelated to the project you might be working on. Or like me, you can just stand up at the front of an ApacheCon lightning talk and tell everyone! Either way, you can generally find someone in the Apache family who will provide a sounding board for anything you want to discuss. These days I spend my spare time still working on OODT stuff, but also doing a lot of public speaking and mentoring and whenever I do I make sure I talk up the Apache Software Foundation because it has given me the chance of a life time and one that I'll be forever grateful for. If you aren't involved in development here at the ASF, get involved, you don't have to be a coder, you just need to like helping out in a fun, Open Source community. As I mentioned at the start, this blog series is about success at Apache, hopefully this proves that success can come in a number of ways, the ASF was selected by NASA as the home for its data middleware platform, that proves that the NASA deemed the incubation process, the license and ecosystem acceptable, that is success the the Apache Foundation. Similarly the foundation has proved very successful in placing people into employment from a range of different walks of life into new lines of work, and that is exactly what happened to me and the reason I wanted to share my story about success at Apache. = = = "Success at Apache" is a new monthly blog series that focuses on the processes behind why the ASF "just works". 1) Project Independence https://s.apache.org/CE0V 2) All Carrot and No Stick https://s.apache.org/ykoG 3) Asynchronous Decision Making https://s.apache.org/PMvk 4) Rule of the Makers https://s.apache.org/yFgQ 5) JFDI --the unconditional love of contributors https://s.apache.org/4pjM [Less]

Open Source Big Data analytics accelerator in use at Bank of Communications, Hulu, Huawei, SAIC Motor, Zhejiang Mobile, among others. Forest Hill, MD –1 May 2017– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers ... [More] , stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that Apache® CarbonData™ 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 CarbonData is an indexed columnar store file format for fast analytics on Big Data platforms (including Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, among others) to help speed up queries an order of magnitude faster over petabytes of data. "We are very proud to complete the incubation process and graduate as an Apache Top-Level Project," said Liang Chen, Vice President of Apache CarbonData. "The CarbonData community grew rapidly over last ten months, both in terms of size and diversity. Since entering the Apache Incubator, we have completed 4 releases, and exceeded 90 contributors from 10 different organizations." With the aim of using a unified file format to satisfy all kinds of data analysis cases, Apache CarbonData seamlessly integrates with Hadoop and Spark to improve Big Data analysis efficiency. In benchmarks, CarbonData's faster interactive query helps in speeding up queries approximately 10x faster than standard column-oriented SQL on Hadoop data stores. Highlights include: Unique data organization to allow faster filtering and better compression; Multi-level Indexing to enable faster search and speeding up query processing; Deep Apache Spark Integration for dataframe + SQL compliance; Advanced push down optimization to minimize the amount of data being read processed, converted, transmitted, and shuffled; Efficient compression and global encoding schemes to further improve aggregation query performance; Dictionary encoding for reduced storage space and faster processing; and Data update + delete support using standard SQL syntax. Apache CarbonData is in use at an array of organizations, including Bank of Communications, medical/pharma social platform DXY, Hulu, Huawei, group online retailer MEITUAN, SAIC Motor, Zhejiang Mobile, among others. "CarbonData has very good performance as a ‘SQL on Hadoop’ solution," said Tan Sheng, Director of SAIC Motor’s Big Data team. "It is suitable for SAIC Motor to adopt as a central Big Data platform component. Not only do we use Apache CarbonData, we also actively participate in its community as contributors."  "Apache CarbonData is great, as helped our audit business to improve 7-10X performance based on 14 billion rows of data," said Wei Zhao, Senior Engineer at Bank of Communications. "Apache CarbonData is very suitable for our filter query cases, and has averaged 20x improvement on performance," said William Zhu, Architecture team member at DXY. "And, as CarbonData supports data update and delete, this feature is very useful. We would consider CarbonData as our all-in-one solution to unify all analysis data." CarbonData was first developed at Huawei in 2013. The project was submitted to the Apache Incubator in June 2016, and had its first official release two months later. The project won top honors in the BlackDuck 2016 Open Source Rookies of the Year's Big Data category. "Apache CarbonData is a great example of the value of the incubation process," said Jean-Baptiste Onofré, Apache CarbonData Incubator Mentor and Project Management Committee member. "Helping grow the CarbonData developer and user communities has increased our visibility, which allowed us to extend our use cases and tests, and gather new ideas. The initial CarbonData committers did (and are still doing) great work to welcome new users and contributors, clearly understanding it's a step forward for the project." "We will continue to put our efforts towards optimizing data format efficiency for Big Data ecosystem and provide an unified and high performance data storage solution," added Liang. "The Apache CarbonData community welcomes interested contributors to work with us on our journey forward." Catch Apache CarbonData in action at ApacheCon (16-18 May/Miami), and Spark Summit (5-7 June/San Francisco). Availability and OversightApache CarbonData 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 CarbonData, visit http://carbondata.apache.org/ , https://twitter.com/ApacheCarbonDat , and https://www.facebook.com/carbondata/ About the Apache IncubatorThe 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/ About The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)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. Through the ASF's meritocratic process known as "The Apache Way," more than 620 individual Members and 6,000 Committers successfully collaborate to develop freely available enterprise-grade software, benefiting millions of users worldwide: thousands of software solutions are distributed under the Apache License; and the community actively participates in ASF mailing lists, mentoring initiatives, and ApacheCon, the Foundation's official user conference, trainings, and expo.
