GaianDB is a distributed, federated database built on Apache Derby.
The documentation is at https://github.com/gaiandb/gaiandb/blob/master/README.md - navigate up for the source.
As part of a Virtual Connector Project based on Atlas we are using gaianDB to provide a virtualization layer. We need to control access to underlying resources and will be building a Ranger plugin for gaiandb to support this. GaianDB already has support for a form of policy plugin which allows the SQL to be intercepted.
It is unclear if this code will sit
- external to ranger/atlas ie in the gaianDB sources
- as a sample in the Atlas project (so that we collate what is needed for the virtual connector project)
- as a sample, or component in the Ranger project
However it seems helpful to describe the proposal here and get feedback/dialogue in the ranger community
