Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "CrailProposal" by PatrickStuedi
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2017 18:51:45 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "CrailProposal" page has been changed by PatrickStuedi:

  Crail solves this problem by providing an efficient storage platform built upon user-level
I/O, thus, bypassing layers such as JVM and OS during I/O operations. Moreover, Crail directly
leverages the specific hardware features of RDMA and NVMe to provide a better integration
with high-level data operations in Apache compute frameworks. As a consequence, Crail enables
users to run larger, more complex queries against ever increasing amounts of data at a speed
largely determined by the deployed hardware. Crail is generic solution that integrates well
with the Apache ecosystem including frameworks like Spark, Hadoop, Hive, etc. 
+ == Initial Goals ==
+ The initial goals to move Crail to the Apache Incubator is to broaden the community, and
foster contributions from developers to leverage Crail in various data processing frameworks
and workloads. Ultimately, the goal for Crail is to become the de-facto standard platform
for storing temporary performance critical data in distributed data processing systems. 
+ == Current Status ==
+ The initial code has been developed at the IBM Zurich Research Center and has recently been
made available in GitHub under the Apache Software License 2.0. The Project currently has
explicit support for Spark and Hadoop. Project documentation is available on the website
There is also a public forum for discussions related to Crail available at!forum/zrlio-users.
