Apache Apex (incubating)

Apache Apex is a unified platform for big data stream and batch processing. Use cases include ingestion, ETL, real-time analytics, alerts and real-time actions. Apex is a Hadoop-native YARN implementation and uses HDFS by default. It simplifies development and productization of Hadoop applications by reducing time to market. Key features include Enterprise Grade Operability with Fault Tolerance, State Management, Event Processing Guarantees, No Data Loss, In-memory Performance & Scalability and Native Window Support.

Malhar is a library of application building blocks and examples that will help you build out your first Apex application quickly.
