ODPi, a nonprofit organization accelerating the delivery of Big Data solutions by powering a well-defined platform called ODPi Core, today announced new members, technical milestones, its formal governance structure and that it will be hosted at The Linux Foundation as a Collaborative Project.
The explosion of data and the requirements to store and process information has resulted in a variety of Big Data solutions. ODPi brings industry leaders together to accelerate the adoption of Apache Hadoop and related Big Data technologies and make it easier to rapidly develop applications. This will be done through integration and standardization of a common reference platform that enables users to realize business results more quickly. ODPi will integrate a variety of upstream Apache projects, working across the Apache ecosystem to create a downstream reference platform on top of which new Big Data solutions can be built.
