Apache Lens 2.7.1 release, a unified data analysis interface


Apache Lens provides a unified data analysis interface. By providing a single view across multiple data stores to split the task of data analysis, while optimizing the implementation of the environment. Hadoop Seamless Integration similar to traditional data warehouse functionality.

The main features of the project:

  • The simple metadata layer provides an abstract view layer for data storage
  • A single shared-mode server, based on Hive meta-storage. Modes are shared via Data Pipeline HCatalog and Analysis Application:
    • OLAP Cube QL  A high-level SQL-like language for querying and describing data sets stored in different cubes of data
    • JDBC driver and Java client library to handle queries
    • Lens Application Server  – This is a REST server that allows users to query data, change data models, schedule quotas, and query quotas
    • The driver-based architecture allows for embedding in reporting systems such as Hive, Column Data Store, Redshift, etc.
    • Engine Selection Based on Cost Algorithm  – This algorithm optimizes the use of resources by automatically selecting the best execution engine for the complexity of the query

Apache Lens 2.7.1 released, this version includes cube segmentation, cross-data federation, and other functions, to complete the source data check and other bug fixes and improvements.
