Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "AtlasProposal" by venkatesh

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "AtlasProposal" page has been changed by venkatesh:

  == Abstract ==
- Falcon is a data processing and management solution for Hadoop designed for data motion,
coordination of data pipelines, lifecycle management, and data discovery. Falcon enables end
consumers to quickly onboard their data and its associated processing and management tasks
on Hadoop clusters.

  == Proposal ==
- Falcon will enable easy data management via declarative mechanism for Hadoop. 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.

  Data Management on Hadoop encompasses data motion, process orchestration, lifecycle management,
data discovery, etc. among other concerns that are beyond ETL. Falcon 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. Falcon has been in production at InMobi, going
on its second year and has been managing hundreds of feeds and processes.
   
- Falcon is being developed by engineers employed with InMobi and Hortonworks. This platform
addition will increase the adoption of Apache Hadoop by driving data management tractable
for end users. We are therefore proposing to make Falcon an Apache open source project.

  == Rationale ==
  The Falcon 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 Falcon in Apache we hope to gather a diverse community
of contributors, helping to ensure that Falcon is deployable for a broad range of scenarios.
Members of the Hadoop development community will be able to influence Falcon’s roadmap,
and contribute to it. We believe having Falcon as part of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem will
be a great benefit to all of Hadoop's users.
