>> cluster-aware
>> messaging and zero-deployment technologies. Ignite also provides support
>> for
>> full ACID transactions spanning memory and optional data sources.
>>
>> Ignite is a broader in-memory system that is less focused on Hadoop. Apache
>> Spark is more inclined towards analytics and ML, and focused on MR-specific
>> payloads.
>>
>> === Ignite vs. Storm, Samza ===
>> Apache Storm is streaming processing framework. Apache Samza is a
>> distributed
>> stream processing engine. Ignite is a multi-purpose In-Memory Data Fabric
>> that
>> also includes streaming processing capabilities (and we can argue better
>> capabilities when it comes to streaming and CEP).
>>
>> Generally, Apache Storm and Apache Samza provide a very different
>> implementation for one of the functional areas of Ignite.
>>
>> === Ignite vs. Hadoop ===
>> Apache Hadoop is a batch oriented data warehouse system. Ignite is a
>> real-time,
>> transactional In-Memory Data Fabric focused on real-time processing of
>> operational data. In most cases, Hadoop acts as one of the “slower”

>> on top of which Ignite is typically deployed.
>>
>>
>> == Initial Goals ==

>> true
>> active and vibrant community governed by the “Apache Way”. The initial
>> development goals for Ignite primarily revolve around migrating the
>> existing

>> Some of the specific initial goals include:
>>
>>  * Migrate the existing Ignite code base to the ASF.
>>  * Refactor development, testing, build and release processes to work in
>> ASF.
>>  * Attract developer and user interest in the new Apache Ignite project.
>>  * Road map the integration efforts with “sister” projects in ASF
