On December 22, 2022, the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) officially announced that Apache Kyuubi has officially graduated as a top-level project (TLP).

Apache Kyuubi is a distributed and multi-tenant gateway for serverless SQL on data warehouses and lake warehouses.

The project was originally developed by Netease Shufan and open-sourced in 2018. It donated to the Apache Foundation in June 2021. After more than a year of incubation, it was voted in November 2022. It graduated successfully in December and became a Apache Foundation Top Open Source Project!

Introduction to Apache Kyuubi

Apache Kyuubi builds distributed SQL query engines on various modern computing frameworks, such as Apache Spark™, ​​Apache Flink™, Apache Doris™, Apache Hive™ and Trino, etc., to queryquery distribution in heterogeneous dataLarge-scale datasets on the source machine farm.

Unified Gateway:Simplified, secure access to any cluster resource through a single point of entry to deploy diverse workloads to end users

  • answerUser programming interface: supports various APIs, including Apache Thrift™, JDBC, ODBC, REST, etc., for easy access.

  • Multi-tenancy: supports end-to-end multi-tenancy, which is beneficial to the security and concurrency of the cluster.

  • High Availability: Ensuring its continuous, trouble-free operation for a specified period of time to meet agreed levels of operational performance.

Serverless SQL and more:Make it easier for end users to gain insights from the data universe and optimize data pipelines, regardless of their technical knowledge. It can use familiar SQL to provide the same user experience as RDBMS for various workloads, provide extensive and secure data access capabilities on different data sources, and provide high performance for large amounts of data through scalable computing resources.

  • Ease of use: End users can have an optimized experience to explore their data universe in a serverless manner. The “superpowers” of corresponding engines such as Spark and Flink are no longer necessary.

  • Run anywhere at any scale: All pre-programmed engines have distributed backends that can schedule tasks on single-node machines or across clusters.

  • High performance: The most advanced query engine, global and continuous optimization on the server side ensure the performance improvement of the entire cluster.

community development

During the incubation process, the community ushered in more than a hundred contributions, thousands of submissions, and a total of nine successful releases. Developers and other types of contributors from different companies and countries have had a happy journey in the community.
