Subject The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache® Eagle™ as a Top-Level Project
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2017 10:27:04 GMT
[this announcement is available online at https://s.apache.org/lRU1 ]

Intelligent Big Data monitoring and alerting solution in use at high volume, high demand Websites,
platforms, and organizations such as eBay, PayPal, Dataguise, and YHD.com, among others.

Forest Hill, MD —10 January 2017— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today that Apache® Eagle™ 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 Eagle is an Open Source monitoring and alerting solution for instantly identifying
security and performance issues on Big Data platforms such as Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark,
and more.

"We are proud to complete the incubation process and graduate as an Apache Top-Level Project,"
said Edward Zhang, Vice President of Apache Eagle. "The community is actively improving product
coverage for analyzing various performance and security issues in large Hadoop clusters."

Eagle was first developed at eBay to solve the monitoring problem for a large scale Hadoop
cluster. The eBay team soon realized it would be useful to the whole community, and submitted
the project to the Apache Incubator in October 2015. Since then, the project gained a lot
of attraction from various developers and organizations for its broad usage scenarios, such
as system/service monitoring, application performance monitoring, and security breach detection.

Apache Eagle features include:
 - Highly extensible - Apache Eagle builds its core framework around the application concept;
the application itself includes the logic for monitoring source data collection, pre-processing
and normalization. Developers can easily develop out-of-box monitoring applications using
Eagle's application framework, and deploy into Eagle.
 - Scalable - the project’s fundamental runtime is based on proven Big Data technologies,
and applies a scalable core to make it adaptive according to the throughput of the data stream
as well as the number of monitored applications.
 - Real-time - provides state-of-the-art alert engine to identify security breaches and performance
 - Dynamic - users can freely enable or disable a monitoring application and dynamically change
their alert policies without any impact to the underlying runtime.

"It is exciting to see increasing deployments of Apache Eagle, along with great use cases
and contributions back to the project," added Zhang.

"Apache Eagle is a highly scalable and extensible technology platform to support the ever
growing needs of intelligent monitoring and alerting in a massively distributed computing
environment," said Debashis Saha, CTO and EVP at Jiff Inc. "As the founding executive sponsor
of this project at eBay, I am proud to see the community continue to expand the capabilities
by supporting complex and diverse use cases for monitoring in security, infrastructure, networking
and distributed services in Apache Eagle. Congratulations to the team and the community in
graduating to a Apache top level project."

"As a leader in data-centric security with a focus on cloud and Big Data technologies, Dataguise
is proud to be part of the Eagle committers group. DgSecure Monitor, our sensitivity-aware
monitoring product, uses Apache Eagle as the core engine," said Subra Ramesh, VP of Products
and Engineering at Dataguise Inc. "Apache Eagle's flexible architecture, proven scalability,
and  cutting-edge design, have enabled DgSecure Monitor to be a highly responsive and scalable
solution for both on-premises and cloud deployments. We look forward to continued involvement
with Eagle as it has now become a top-level Apache project."

"We have been using Apache Eagle for about a year, and are very happy to see it graduate to
a Top-Level Project. Apache Eagle and its low latency real-time alert engine can help us easily
identify security and performance issues instantly on Hadoop platform," said Anson Zhong,
Senior Vice President of Tech Department at YHD.com. "In addition, Eagle's architecture is
highly extensible. We are looking forward to using it in real time risk management system."

"Apache Eagle is a great monitoring and alerting solution designed for large-scale distributed
environment," said Chad Chun, Director of Analytics Data Infrastructure at eBay. "It was originally
intended for security monitoring and quickly become a generic solution for allowing domain
experts to create their own monitoring applications on top of Eagle. This is a wonderful design
for easily leveraging the power of community to create and share applications. Looking forward
to the tremendous adoption in the industry."

"The Apache Eagle community has done a tremendous job throughout the incubation process, and
I'm thrilled to see it graduate to a Top-Level Project," said P. Taylor Goetz, ASF Member
and Apache Eagle Project Mangement Committee member. "Eagle fills a very important role in
providing top-notch security and performance monitoring and alerting for Big Data deployments.
The Eagle project has built a robust, sustainable community and demonstrated a firm understanding
of the Apache Way. I look forward to further innovation as the Eagle community marks this
important milestone."

"It is great to see Apache Eagle graduate to a Top Level Project within a year of time," said
Seshu Adunuthula, Senior Director of Data Platforms at eBay. "It is a great product with unique
position to fill the gap of monitoring and alerting large-scale distributed computing environment
which is well architected to allow communities to easily implement monitoring and alerting
applications on different technical domains such as networking and database clusters.  I would
love to see the community to grow fast in the next coming years!"

The project welcomes contributions and community participation through mailing lists, Slack
channel, face-to-face Meetups, and other events.

Availability and Oversight
Apache Eagle 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

About the Apache Incubator
The Apache Incubator is the entry path for projects and codebases wishing to become part of
the efforts at The Apache Software Foundation. All code donations from external organizations
and existing external projects wishing to join the ASF enter through the Incubator to: 1)
ensure all donations are in accordance with the ASF legal standards; and 2) develop new communities
that adhere to our guiding principles. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects
until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making
process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation
status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does
indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF. For more information, visit
