Using Docker to Install Apache Trafodion

We are excited to announce the availability of Apache Trafodion 2.0 (Incubating) on Docker. Developers around the world can now easily install a single node version of Apache Trafodion on their Linux boxes in a snap.


Apache Trafodion and EsgynDB (commercial version supported by Esgyn) enable you to use SQL on Hadoop and reduce or remove the need for MapReduce jobs to access and process the data. A key differentiation of Apache Trafodion when compared to other SQL engines is the maturity and ability to run mixed workloads ranging from operational, analytical and transactional thereby helping you to get more value from Hadoop without moving or duplicating data. You can deliver a variety of use cases, including Enterprise Data Lake, Operational Data Stores, offloading RDBMS, offloading ETL, and Enterprise Document Management.


Support for Docker has been a key ask from the Apache Trafodion community and we are excited to announce the release of the Apache Trafodion Docker image.
