Ignite

17 May 2017 [Denis Magda / Chris]

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

## Description:

The Apache Ignite (TM) In-Memory Data Fabric is a high-performance, integrated
and distributed in-memory platform for computing and transacting on
large-scale data sets in real-time, orders of magnitude faster than possible
with traditional disk-based or flash technologies.

Apache Ignite (TM) provides many in-memory components to improve performance
and scalability of user applications, including in-memory data grid, in-memory
sql grid, in-memory compute grid, in-memory streaming, and more.

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:

- The community worked hard and managed to release Apache Ignite 1.8 on Dec 8,
  2016.  The release encompasses a brand new In-Memory SQL Grid component that
  allows to work with an Ignite cluster as with an in-memory database fully
  relaying on SQL syntax.  In addition, the release introduces support of
  Redis compliant client, improvements in Ignite.NET and deadlock detection
  mechanism.  More details:
  https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/entry/the-asf-asks-have-you

- Presently the community is approaching the next major release - Apache
  Ignite 2.0.  The new version will be based on new memory architecture that
  will keep down an impact of Java Garbage Collectors. Also there will be many
  core and SQL related performance.

- The community refined the technical documentation making it clearer and
  actively maintains the blogging list - https://ignite.apache.org/blogs.html

- Apache Ignite enrolled in Google Summer of Code 2017 program
  (https://goo.gl/4SpTzK) and submitted a bunch of talks to upcoming ApacheCon
  conference.

   performance and scalability of user applications, including in-memory
   data grid (distributed caching), in-memory compute grid, in-memory

## Activity:
 - The community has released 1.5.0 final version.
   The release includes C++ and .NET/C# support, deadlock-free transactions,
   compact binary marshalling protocol, OSGI support, integration with MQTT,
   Flume, Camel, and Twitter streams, and many other features.

 - The community is working towards version 1.6.0, which will include
   ODBC support, and non-collocated SQL joins, as well as significant
   performance improvements.

 - Based on user requests, and given that one of the main features of Ignite
   is performance, the community desided to start publishing transparent
   reproducable performance comparisons to other products, beginning with
   Hazelcast. The Hazelcast team questioned the validity of the test, and
   Ignite community worked with Hazelcast on reproducing it. Ignite community
   is planning to publish performance comparisons with other open source
   projects, including Apache Cassandra, Infinispan, and Redis. The
   comparisons will be published on the Ignite website with code and detailed
   steps to reproduce the numbers on Amazon AWS.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Branko Čibej (brane):

   The Ignite community has progressed very nicely in recent months.
   The dev@ list has become the main communication channel, new contributors
   are arriving and many have been invited to the PPMC. Apart from a few
   minor teething problems, the latest release has gone smoothly.
   I'm hoping that we'll be able to report successful graduation by the
   time the next board report is due.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Alan Cabrera (adc):

   This podling is off to a great start.  Mentors are extremely active
   participants with most of the non-Jira chatter being between Dmitriy
   Setrakyan and the mentors; look to the Jira issue to see the rest of the
   community "getting it done".  The "issues to be addressed" section seems
   reasonable.

 Branko Čibej (brane):

   I agree with Alan's assessment, but I'd really like to see more
   activity on the dev@ list; especially more of the initial committers
   getting involved in discussions there. Whilst Jira notifications are
   nice, I have a nagging feeling that most of the discussions within
   the community are happening off-line, which leaves a rather large
   hole in the community's collective memory (i.e., mail archives).
   This will have to be addressed before graduation.
