Google Plans to Donate Dataflow Technology to Apache
Google has announced that it plans to donate its Dataflow data processing technology to Apache Software Foundation (ASF). A proposal regarding the same has been submitted to ASF. This move by Google is an attempt to include Dataflow in the Apache incubator project and also to encourage better transparency and governance around it.
A revolutionary technology, Dataflow can handle stream as well as batch processing of vast data sets. It is more efficient than the MapReduce technology that lies at the heart of Hadoop, the open-source big data software. Also, Google’s Cloud Dataflow is a planned implementation of Dataflow on Google’s public cloud. Each new cloud-based effort by Google is their continued effort to beat competitors such as Amazon Web Services & Microsoft Azure in the public cloud business.
