Sally, 

You understood everything perfectly well producing such a clear and great article! Not sure
that anyone could write better ;)

Please give editing permissions to my google account (magda7817@gmail.com <mailto:magda7817@gmail.com>).
I’ll fill in the missing part.

editing credentials on the googledoc to those requesting it.

for you to use for future project announcements.

for an array of Open Source software and tools that meet the demand for interoperable, adaptable,
and sustainable solutions. The all-volunteer ASF develops, stewards, and incubates dozens
of enterprise-grade Open Source projects that power mission-critical applications in financial
services, aerospace, publishing, government, healthcare, research, infrastructure, and more.
From Abdera to ZooKeeper, the demand for ASF's reliable, community-driven software continues
to grow dramatically across many categories, including Cloud, IoT, Artificial Intelligence
and Machine Learning, Mobile, and Big Data, where the Apache Hadoop ecosystem dominates the
marketplace.

power both existing and new applications in a distributed, massively parallel architecture
on affordable, industry-standard hardware.

of nodes with strong semantics for data locality and affinity data routing to reduce redundant
data noise. Ignite data grid is lightning fast and is one of the fastest implementations of
transactional or atomic data in distributed clusters today.

facility (as opposed to being used exclusively for processing). As such, Ignite's memory-first
approach is more efficient and faster: with improved system indexes, reduced data fetch time,
and no delays in a stream content processing, among other benefits.

the need for developers to have to rewrite SQL based code to IMDG’s native APIs. This means
that developers can keep using existing applications and tools written for relational databases
and based on SQL language with very little to no code modification. Ignite SQL Grid is horizontally
scalable, fault tolerant, and SQL ANSI-99 compliant.
