Kudu considers multiple objectives when it was designed:
- performance for both scan and random access,
- CPU efficiency,
- IO efficiency,
- Updates in place and
- active-active replicated data sets.
3 years after the decision to define and build a new storage layer, Kudu is ready, fully open source available via Apache Software License 2.0. It's interesting to see that some companies already participate in the development effort such AtScale, Intel as already said, Splice Machine, Xiaomi and Zoomdata. Cloudera thinks about donating this effort to the ASF to continue the momentum around the platform.
