World's first schema-free SQL query engine brings self-service data exploration to Apache

Forest Hill, MD –02 December 2014– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 200 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today that Apache™ Drill™ 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 Drill is the world's first schema-free SQL query engine that delivers real-time insights
by removing the constraint of building and maintaining schemas before data can be analyzed.
Drill users can run interactive ANSI SQL queries on complex or constantly evolving data including
JSON, Parquet, and HBase without ever worrying about schema definitions. As a result, Drill
not only enables rapid application development on Apache Hadoop™ but also allows enterprise
BI analysts to access Hadoop in a self-service fashion.

"Apache Drill's graduation is a testament to the maturity of the technology and a strong indicator
of the active community that develops and supports it," said Jacques Nadeau, Vice President
of Apache Drill. "Drill's vibrant community ensures that it will continue to evolve to meet
the demands of self-service data exploration use cases."

While providing faster time to value from data stored in Hadoop, Drill also reduces the burden
on IT developers and administrators who prepare and maintain datasets for analysis. Analysts
can explore data in real-time, pull in new datasets on the fly, and also use traditional BI
tools to visualize the data easily – all by themselves.

Inspired by Google's Dremel (an academic paper on interactive analysis of Web-scale datasets),
and a vision to support modern big data applications, Drill entered the Apache Incubator in
August 2012. The project currently has code contributions from individual committers representing
MapR, LinkedIn, Hortonworks, Pentaho, and Cisco, among others.

"We see the Apache Top-Level Project status as a major milestone for Drill. With a growing
user base and diverse community interest, we are excited that Drill will indeed be a game
changer for Hadoop application developers and BI analysts alike," said Tomer Shiran, member
of the Apache Drill Project Management Committee.

Availability and Oversight
As with all Apache products, Apache Drill software is released under the Apache License v2.0,
and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management
Committee (PMC) guides the Project's day-to-day operations, including community development
and product releases. For documentation and ways to become involved with Apache Drill, visit and
