Metamarkets' Streaming Data Store Druid Now Available Under Apache License

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2015) - Real-time analytics pioneer Metamarkets today announced it has made available its streaming data store Druid under the Apache 2 license. More than a dozen companies are using the software in production, and this new, more permissive license will give them even greater freedom to build on Druid and contribute their innovations back to the community.

"We and many of our clients know how capable Druid is at processing huge quantities of data with minimal latency," said Florian Leibert, Founder and CEO, Mesosphere. "The move to the Apache license will accelerate its continued adoption, and we look forward to working with the Druid community to help move this technology forward."

Since Metamarkets open sourced Druid in 2012, the technology has emerged as a standard for exploratory analytics on large-scale, time-series data sets in ad-tech, network analysis, IoT, activity stream analysis, and operations. Druid's architecture is unique in that it combines storage and computation to create immutable indexes that are highly optimized for aggregation and other business intelligence use cases. The result is a platform that's faster and more flexible than many traditional relational databases, key/value stores, and in-memory query layers.

"To build our full-stack analytics service, we had to invent a handful of technology components that previously didn't exist," said Mike Driscoll, Metamarkets Co-Founder and CEO. "Druid is the first of these that we've open sourced, and now that it's under the Apache license, we look forward to seeing even more innovation from the developer community."
