Summary

Combine the Flink and the Graal technologies to create a high performance data processing platform that is optimized across the stack. Main purpose is to be able to use Truffle languages (e.g., R and JavaScript) in Flink queries and to ensure that Graal’s vectorisation and escape analysis techniques are leveraged to the maximum extent possible when executing Flink on top of Graal VM.
