Hi all,

The Apache Lens team is happy to announce the release of Apache Lens 2.4.0-beta.

Apache Lens provides an Unified Analytics interface. Lens aims to cut the Data Analytics silos by providing a single view of data across multiple tiered data stores and optimal execution environment for the analytical query. It seamlessly integrates Hadoop with traditional data warehouses to appear like one.
