The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache® Linkis™ as a Top-Level Project

Apache Software Foundation

WILMINGTON, DE — The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 open source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® Linkis has graduated from incubator and is now a Top-Level Project (TLP).

Apache Linkis is a unique computation middleware that builds a layer between upper applications and underlying engines. This makes it easy for upper applications to access engines such as MySQL, Apache Spark, Apache Hive, Presto, and Apache Flink, by using standard interfaces like REST/WS/JDBC provided by Linkis. It also provides data source and metadata management services through the REST standard interface.

“Linkis is designed to solve computation governance problems in complex distributed environments (typically in a big data platform), builds a computation middleware layer to decouple the upper applications and the underlying data engines” said Shuai Di, vice president of Apache Linkis. “The graduation of Apache Linkis marks the successful establishment of an open, diverse, and mature open source community. Graduation is the end of incubation, but only the beginning of truly top open source projects. The project will continue to practice the Apache way and develop Linkis into an easier-to-use and popular project around the world.”
