Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "IvoryProposal" by ArunMurthy

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "IvoryProposal" page has been changed by ArunMurthy:

removed reference to yahoo.

  
  Data Management on Hadoop encompasses data motion, process orchestration, lifecycle management,
data discovery, etc. among other concerns that are beyond ETL. Ivory is a new data processing
and management platform for Hadoop that solves this problem and creates additional opportunities
by building on existing components within the Hadoop ecosystem (ex. Apache Oozie, Apache Hadoop
DistCp etc.) without reinventing the wheel. Ivory has been in production at InMobi, going
on its second year and has been managing hundreds of feeds and processes.
   
- Ivory is being developed by engineers employed with InMobi, Hortonworks and Yahoo!. This
platform addition will increase the adoption of Apache Hadoop by driving data management tractable
for end users. We are therefore proposing to make Ivory an Apache open source project.

  == Rationale ==
  The Ivory project aims to improve the usability of Apache Hadoop. As a result Apache Hadoop
will grow its community of users by increasing the places Hadoop can be utilized and the use
cases it will solve. By developing Ivory in Apache we hope to gather a diverse community of
contributors, helping to ensure that Ivory is deployable for a broad range of scenarios. Members
of the Hadoop development community will be able to influence Ivory’s roadmap, and contribute
to it. We believe having Ivory as part of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem will be a great benefit
to all of Hadoop's users.

  We are happy to report that the initial team already represents multiple organizations.
We hope to extend the user and developer base further in the future and build a solid open
source community around Ivory.
  
  === Core Developers ===
- Ivory is currently being developed by three engineers from InMobi – Srikanth Sunderrajan,
Shwetha G S, and Shaik Idris, two Hortonworks employees – Sanjay Radia and Venkatesh Seetharam.
In addition, Rohini Palaniswamy and Thiruvel Thirumoolan, were also involved in the initial
design discussions. Srikanth, Shwetha and Shaik are the original developers. All the engineers
have built two generations of Data Management on Hadoop, having deep expertise in Hadoop and
are quite familiar with the Hadoop Ecosystem. Samarth & Rishu have build the QA automation
for Ivory.

  === Alignment ===
  The ASF is a natural host for Ivory given that it is already the home of Hadoop, Pig, Knox,
HCatalog, and other emerging “big data” software projects. Ivory has been designed to
solve the data management challenges and opportunities of the Hadoop ecosystem family of products.
Ivory fills the gap that Hadoop ecosystem has been lacking in the areas of data processing
and data lifecycle management.

  All of the core developers are active users and followers of open source. Srikanth Sundarrajan
has been contributing patches to Apache Hadoop and Apache Oozie, Shwetha GS has been contributing
patches to Apache Oozie.  Seetharam Venkatesh is a committer on Apache Knox. Sharad Agarwal,
Amareshwari SR (also a Apache Hive PMC member) and Sanjay Radia are PMC members on Apache
Hadoop.
  
  === Homogeneous Developers ===
- The current core developers are from diverse set of organizations such as InMobi, Hortonworks,
and, Yahoo!. We expect to quickly establish a developer community that includes contributors
from several corporations post incubation.

  === Reliance on Salaried Developers ===
  Currently, most developers are paid to do work on Ivory but few are contributing in their
spare time. However, once the project has a community built around it post incubation, we
expect to get committers and developers from outside the current core developers.
