NiFi 0.2.0-1.5.0

Overview of DC/OS Apache NiFi 0.2.0-1.5.0

Apache NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming. It supports powerful and scalable directed graphs of data routing, transformation and system mediation logic. NiFi has a web-based user interface for design, control, feedback, and monitoring of dataflows. It is highly configurable along several dimensions of quality of service, such as loss-tolerant versus guaranteed delivery, low latency versus high throughput and priority-based queuing. NiFi provides fine-grained data provenance for all data received, forked, joined cloned, modified, sent and ultimately dropped upon reaching its configured end-state.

DC/OS NiFi Service is an automated service that makes it easy to deploy and manage Apache NiFi on Mesosphere DC/OS, eliminating nearly all complexities, that are traditionally associated with managing a cluster of NiFi nodes.


DC/OS NiFi offers the following benefits of a semi-managed service:

  1. Easy installation
  2. Multiple NiFi clusters
  3. Elastic scaling of Nodes
  4. Replication and graceful shutdown for high availability
  5. NiFi cluster and Node monitoring

DC/OS NiFi provides the following features:

  1. Single-command installation for rapid provisioning
  2. Multiple clusters for multiple tenancy with DC/OS
  3. High availability runtime configuration and software updates
  4. Storage volumes for enhanced data durability, known as Mesos Dynamic Reservations and Persistent Volumes
  5. Integration with syslog-compatible logging services for diagnostics and troubleshooting
  6. Integration with statsd-compatible metrics services for capacity and performance monitoring
