Apache Kudu is an open source distributed data storage engine that makes fast analytics on fast and changing data easy.Quickstart Installation Releases
Kudu provides a combination of fast inserts/updates and efficient columnar scans to enable multiple real-time analytic workloads across a single storage layer. Kudu gives architects the flexibility to address a wider variety of use cases without exotic workarounds and no required external service dependencies.
Kudu is specifically designed for use cases that require fast analytics on fast (rapidly changing) data. Engineered to take advantage of next-generation hardware and in-memory processing, Kudu lowers query latency significantly for engines like Apache Impala, Apache NiFi, Apache Spark, Apache Flink, and more.
Founded by long-time contributors to the Apache big data ecosystem, Apache Kudu is a top-level Apache Software Foundation project released under the Apache 2 license and values community participation as an important ingredient in its long-term success. We appreciate all community contributions to date, and are looking forward to seeing more!
