Apache Incubator Flink is a next-generation platform for big data analysis originating from the Stratosphere project (www.stratosphere.eu). Flink offers an alternative runtime engine to Hadoop MapReduce, but uses HDFS for data storage and runs on top of YARN. Flink`s runtime streams data rather than processing them in batch, uses out-of-core implementations for data-parallel processing tasks, degrading to disk if main memory is not sufficient. Flink is programmable via a Java or Scala API that includes functional operators like map, reduce, join, cogroup, and cross. Analysis logic is specified without the need of linking user-defined functions. Flink includes a cost-based program optimizer that picks data shipping strategies. Finally, Flink features support for iterative programs and graph processing programs. As a consequence Flink is currently witnessing its first commercial use cases.
