From Proof of Concept to Robust Platform
CloverETL is one of the longest serving open-source ETL software on the market. Since its inception in 2002, the CloverETL platform has relied on the three stable principles: the drive for elegant and robust architecture, the belief that less is better, and the importance of long-term planning. These principles have allowed CloverETL to stay not only competitive and reliable, but also flexible to extend or embed into custom solutions.
CloverETL – The Concept
"CloverETL started as a proof of a concept," said David Pavlis, founder and President of Javlin, of Clover’s creation. "I wanted to learn Java, which, in 2002, had a reputation as a cool, object-oriented language – but with poor performance. I decided that if I were to learn Java, I should do so through an interesting, hands-on project: thus began Clover.
CloverETL – The Brand
"I spent a substantial amount of time searching for the right name. At that time, every hip, popular OSS project – mostly around Linux then – had a 'magical' name to it. The Java ETL project, or JETL, eventually led me to my native language: Jetel translates to Clover in Czech. The word play was a stroke of luck, as the Clover name fit the principles of the brand. A clover, elegantly crafted, unique, and interesting, could represent our project of the same character," said Pavlis.
