Apache Trafodion is an open-source Top-Level Project at the Apache Software Foundation. It was originally developed by the information technology division of Hewlett-Packard Company and HP Labs to provide the SQL query language on Apache HBase targeting big data transactional or operational workloads. The project was named after the Welsh word for transactions. As of April 2021, it is no longer actively developed.
Trafodion is a relational database management system that runs on Apache Hadoop, providing support for transactional or operational workloads in a big data environment. The following is a list of key features:
- ANSI SQL language support
- JDBC and Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) connectivity for Linux and Windows clients
- Distributed ACID transaction protection across multiple statements, tables, and rows
- Compile-time and run-time optimizations for real-time operational workloads
- Support for large data sets using a parallel-aware query optimizer and a parallel data-flow execution engine
Transaction management features include:
- Begin, commit, and rollback work syntax, including SET TRANSACTION
- READ COMMITTED transactional isolation level
- Multiple SQL processes participating in the same transaction concurrently
- Recovery after region server, transaction manager, or node failure
- Support for region splits and balancing
A version of Trafodion was released on January 29, 2015.
Trafodion became an Apache Incubation Project in May 2015.
Trafodion graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project at the Apache Software Foundation in January 2018.
