Last week, we outlined our approach for delivering an enterprise viable Apache Hadoop distribution in the open. Simply put: we believe the fastest way to innovate is to do our work within the open source community, introduce enterprise feature requirements into that public domain, and to work diligently to progress existing open source projects and incubate new projects to meet those needs.
In support of our approach, this week we’ve announced the submission of two new incubation projects to the Apache Software foundation together with the launch of the “Stinger Initiative”, all aimed at enhancing the security and performance of Hadoop applications. These efforts focus on enterprise requirements that are essential to enable broad adoption across the Hadoop ecosystem.
We feel these efforts are strong examples of our commitment to driving innovation from within the open source community, and as stated in our approach blog, we do this by::
Since it takes a community to build enterprise-class platforms like Hadoop, if you have interest in helping with Knox, Tez, or Stinger, we encourage you to work with us and the others in the Apache community!
