+    <p>We embarked on the Drill project in late 2012 with two primary objectives:</p>
+<li>Enable agility by getting rid of all the traditional overhead - namely, the need
to load data, create and maintain schemas, transform data, etc. We wanted to develop a system
that would support the speed and agility at which modern organizations want (or need) to operate
in this era.</li>
+<li>Unlock the data housed in non-relational datastores like NoSQL, Hadoop and cloud
storage, making it available not only to developers, but also business users, analysts, data
scientists and anyone else who can write a SQL query or use a BI tool. Non-relational datastores
are capturing an increasing share of the world&#39;s data, and it&#39;s incredibly
hard to explore and analyze this data.</li>
+<p>Today we&#39;re happy to announce the availability of the production-ready Drill
1.0 release. This release addresses <a href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=12313820&amp;version=12325568">228
JIRAs</a> on top of the 0.9 release earlier this month.</p>
+<p>We would not have been able to reach this milestone without the tremendous effort
by all the <a href="/team/">committers</a> and contributors, and we would like
to congratulate the entire community on achieving this milestone. While 1.0 is an exciting
milestone, it&#39;s really just the beginning of the journey. We&#39;ll release 1.1
next month, and continue with our 4-6 week release cycle, so you can count on many additional
enhancements over the coming months.</p>
+<p>We have included the press release issued by the Apache Software Foundation below.</p>

+<p>The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Drill™ 1.0</p>
+<p>Thousands of users adopt Open Source, enterprise-grade, schema-free SQL query engine
for Apache Hadoop®, NoSQL and Cloud storage.</p>
+<p>Forest Hill, MD --19 May 2015-- The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today the availability of Apache™ Drill™ 1.0, the schema-free SQL query engine
for Apache Hadoop®, NoSQL and Cloud storage.</p>
+<p>&quot;The production-ready 1.0 release represents a significant milestone for
the Drill project,&quot; said Tomer Shiran, member of the Apache Drill Project Management
Committee. &quot;It is the outcome of almost three years of development involving dozens
of engineers from numerous companies. Apache Drill&#39;s flexibility and ease-of-use have
attracted thousands of users, and the enterprise-grade reliability, security and performance
in the 1.0 release will further accelerate adoption.&quot;</p>
+<p>With the exponential growth of data in recent years, and the shift towards rapid
application development, new data is increasingly being stored in non-relational, schema-free
datastores including Hadoop, NoSQL and Cloud storage. Apache Drill revolutionizes data exploration
and analytics by enabling analysts, business users, data scientists and developers to explore
and analyze this data without sacrificing the flexibility and agility offered by these datastores.
Drill processes the data in-situ without requiring users to define schemas or transform data.</p>
+<p>&quot;Drill introduces the JSON document model to the world of SQL-based analytics
and BI&quot; said Jacques Nadeau, Vice President of Apache Drill. &quot;This enables
users to query fixed-schema, evolving-schema and schema-free data stored in a variety of formats
and datastores. The architecture of relational query engines and databases is built on the
assumption that all data has a simple and static structure that’s known in advance, and
this 40-year-old assumption is simply no longer valid. We designed Drill from the ground up
to address the new reality.”</p>
+<p>Apache Drill&#39;s architecture is unique in many ways. It is the only columnar
execution engine that supports complex and schema-free data, and the only execution engine
that performs data-driven query compilation (and re-compilation, also known as schema discovery)
during query execution. These unique capabilities enable Drill to achieve record-breaking
performance with the flexibility offered by the JSON document model.</p>
+<p>The business intelligence (BI) partner ecosystem is embracing the power of Apache
Drill. Organizations such as Information Builders, JReport (Jinfonet Software), MicroStrategy,
Qlik®, Simba, Tableau, and TIBCO, are working closely with the Drill community to interoperate
BI tools with Drill through standard ODBC and JDBC connectivity. This collaboration enables
end users to explore data by leveraging sophisticated visualization tools and advanced analytics.</p>
+<p>&quot;We&#39;ve been using Apache Drill for the past six months,&quot;
said Andrew Hamilton, CTO of Cardlytics. &quot;Its ease of deployment and use along with
its ability to quickly process trillions of records has made it an invaluable tool inside
Cardlytics. Queries that were previously insurmountable are now common occurrence. Congratulations
to the Drill community on this momentous occasion.&quot;</p>
+<p>&quot;Drill&#39;s columnar execution engine and optimizer take full advantage
of Apache Parquet&#39;s columnar storage to achieve maximum performance,&quot; said
Julien Le Dem, Technical Lead of Data Processing at Twitter and Vice President of Apache Parquet.
&quot;The Drill team has been a key contributor to the Parquet project, including recent
enhancements to Parquet types and vectorization. The Drill team’s involvement in the Parquet
community is instrumental in driving the standard.&quot;</p>
+<p>&quot;Apache Drill 1.0 raises the bar for secure, reliable and scalable SQL-on-Hadoop,&quot;
said Piyush Bhargava, distinguished engineer, IT, Cisco Systems. &quot;Because Drill integrates
with existing data virtualization and visualization tools, we expect it will improve adoption
of self-service data exploration and large-scale BI queries on our advanced Hadoop platform
at Cisco.&quot;</p>
+<p>&quot;MicroStrategy recognized early on the value of Apache Drill and is one
of the first analytic platforms to certify Drill,&quot; said Tim Lang, senior executive
vice president and chief technology officer at MicroStrategy Incorporated.  &quot;Because
Drill is designed to be used with a minimal learning curve, it opens up more complex data
sets to the end user who can immediately visualize and analyze new information using MicroStrategy’s
advanced capabilities.&quot;</p>
+<p>&quot;Apache Drill closes a gap around self-service SQL queries in Hadoop, especially
on complex, dynamic NoSQL data types,&quot; said Mike Foster, Strategic Alliances Technology
Officer at Qlik.  &quot;Drill&#39;s performance advantages for Hadoop data access,
combined with the Qlik associative experience, enables our customers to continue discovering
business value from a wide range of data. Congratulations to the Apache Drill community.&quot;</p>
+<p>&quot;Apache Drill empowers people to access data that is traditionally difficult
to work with,&quot; said Jeff Feng, product manager, Tableau.  &quot;Direct access
within a centralized data repository and without pre-generating metadata definitions encourages
data democracy which is essential for data-driven organizations. Additionally, Drill&#39;s
instant and secure access to complex data formats, such as JSON, opens up extended analytical
+<p>&quot;Congratulations to the Apache Drill community on the availability of 1.0,&quot;
said Karl Van den Bergh, Vice President, Products and Cloud at TIBCO. &quot;Drill promises
to bring low-latency access to data stored in Hadoop and HBase via standard SQL semantics.
This innovation is in line with the value of Fast Data analysis, which TIBCO customers welcome
and appreciate.&quot;</p>
+<p>&quot;The community&#39;s accomplishment is a testament to The Apache Software
Foundation&#39;s ability to bring together diverse companies to work towards a common
goal. None of this would have been possible without the contribution of engineers with advanced
degrees and experience in relational databases, data warehousing, MPP, query optimization,
Hadoop and NoSQL,&quot; added Nadeau. &quot;Our community&#39;s strength is what
will solidify Apache Drill as a key data technology for the next decade. We welcome interested
individuals to learn more about Drill by joining the community&#39;s mailing lists, attending
upcoming talks by Drill code committers at various conferences including Hadoop Summit, NoSQL
Now, Hadoop World, or at a local Apache Drill MeetUp.&quot;</p>
