Apache CarbonData is an open source project of The Apache Software Foundation (ASF). We are an open and friendly community. We welcome everyone to join the community and contribute to CarbonData.
It is very easy to join CarbonData community:
Stores data in Columnar format, with each Data Block(row group) sorted independent of the other to allow faster filtering and better compression.
Utilizes multiple indices at various levels to enable faster search and speeding up query processing.
Pushes much of query processing close to the data to minimize the amount of data being read, processed, converted, transmitted and shuffled.
Apache CarbonData is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
