Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "CrailProposal" by PatrickStuedi
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2017 18:59:29 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:

  The need for a generic solution to integrate high-performance I/O hardware in the open source
is tremendous, so there is a potential for a very large community. We believe that Crail’s
extensible architecture and its alignment with the Apache Ecosystem will further encourage
community participation. We expect that over time Crail will attract a large community.
+ == Alignment ==
+ Crail is written in Java and is built for the Apache data processing ecosystem. The basic
storage services of Crail can be used seamlessly from Spark, Hadoop, Storm. The enhanced storage
services require dedicated data processing specific binding, which currently are available
only for Spark. We think that moving Crail to the Apache incubator will help to extend Crail’s
support for different data processing frameworks. 
+ == Known Risks ==
+ To-date, development has been sponsored by IBM and coordinated mostly by the core team of
researchers at the IBM Zurich Research Center. For Crail to fully transition to an "Apache
Way" governance model, it needs to start embracing the meritocracy-centric way of growing
the community of contributors.
