The Apache Gora open source framework provides an in-memory data model and persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores, key value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with extensive Apache Hadoop™ MapReduce support. Gora uses the Apache Software License v2.0. Gora graduated from the Apache Incubator in January 2012 to become a top-level Apache project.
