Forest Hill, MD, July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The #Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that Apache® Twill™ has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project (TLP), signifying that the project’s community and products have been well-governed under the ASF’s meritocratic process and principles. Apache Twill is an abstraction over Apache #Hadoop ® #YARN that reduces the complexity of developing distributed Hadoop applications, allowing developers to focus more on their application logic. “The Twill community is excited to graduate from the Apache Incubator to a Top-Level Project,” said Terence Yim, Vice President of Apache Twill and Software Engineer at Cask. “We are proud of the innovation, creativity and simplicity Twill demonstrates. We are also very excited to bring a technology so versatile in Hadoop into the hands of every developer in the industry.” Apache Twill provides rich built-in features for common distributed applications for development, deployment, and management, greatly easing Hadoop cluster operation and administration. “Enterprises use big data technologies – and specifically Hadoop – to drive more value,” said Patrick Hunt, member of the Apache Software Foundation and Senior Software Engineer at Cloudera. “Apache Twill helps streamline and reduce complexity of developing distributed applications and its graduation to an Apache Top-Level Project means more people will be able to take advantage of Apache Hadoop YARN more easily.” “This is an exciting and major milestone for Apache Twill,” said Keith Turner, member of the Apache Fluo (incubating) Project Management Committee, which used Twill in the development of Fluo, an Open Source project that makes it possible to update the results of a large-scale computation, index, or analytic as new data is discovered. “Early in development, we knew we needed a standard way to launch Fluo across a cluster, and we found Twill. With Twill, we quickly and easily had Fluo running across many nodes on a cluster.”
