Subject [Incubator Wiki] Trivial Update of "NiFiProposal" by TonyKurc
Date Wed, 19 Nov 2014 21:46:46 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "NiFiProposal" page has been changed by TonyKurc:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/NiFiProposal?action=diff&rev1=8&rev2=9

  == Background ==
  Reliable and effective dataflow between systems can be difficult whether you're running
scripts on a laptop or have a massive distributed computing system operated by numerous teams
and organizations.  As the volume and rate of data grows and as the number of systems, protocols,
and formats increase and evolve so too does the complexity and need for greater insight and
agility.  These are the dataflow challenges that NiFi was built to tackle.
  
- Ni``Fi is designed in a manner consistent with the core concepts described in flow-based
programming as originally documented by J. Paul Morrison in the 1970s.  This model lends itself
well to visual diagramming, concurrency, componentization, testing, and reuse.  In addition
to staying close to the fundamentals of flow based programming, Ni``Fi provides integration
system specific features such as: guaranteed delivery; back pressure; ability to gracefully
handle backlogs and data surges; and an operator interface that enables on-the-fly data flow
generation, modification, and observation.

  == Rationale ==
  Ni``Fi provides a reliable, scalable, manageable and accountable platform for developers
and technical staff to create and evolve powerful data flows.  Such a system is useful in
many contexts including large-scale enterprise integration, interaction with cloud services
and frameworks, business to business, intra-departmental, and inter-departmental flows.  Ni``Fi
fits well within the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) family as it depends on numerous ASF
projects and integrates with several others.  We also anticipate developing extensions for
several other ASF projects such as Cassandra, Kafka, and Storm in the near future.
