CDAP v2.8.0 is out in the wild

Albert Shau is a software engineer at Cask, where he is working to simplify data application development. Prior to Cask, he developed recommendation systems at Yahoo! and search systems at Box.

I am very happy to announce that the latest release of our flagship product – the Cask Data Application Platform (CDAP) – v2.8.0 is now available for everyone to download.

This release has a bunch of cool features that our customers, partners and the community want:

  • Namespaces (provides application and data isolation that enables multi-tenancy)
  • Improved queue performance in our flow system
  • Fork and join capabilities in our workflow system
  • A new metrics storage layer and APIs
  • Richer time-partitioned file datasets
  • A notification system that asynchronously triggers workflows based on data availability
  • Operability improvements

You can check out the full list in our release notes.

Last week, I published a blog post about one of the cool additions included in this release –  schema-on-read using CDAP. Schema-on-read means you do not need to know how you will use your data when storing it. It allows you to innovate quickly by asking different and more powerful questions after storing the data.

So download CDAP when you get a chance, check out our code, play around with it, ask questions, and provide your feedback.
