Spring Data’s mission is to provide a familiar and consistent, Spring-based programming model for data access while still retaining the special traits of the underlying data store.
It makes it easy to use data access technologies, relational and non-relational databases, map-reduce frameworks, and cloud-based data services. This is an umbrella project which contains many subprojects that are specific to a given database. The projects are developed by working together with many of the companies and developers that are behind these exciting technologies.
Powerful repository and custom object-mapping abstractions
Dynamic query derivation from repository method names
Implementation domain base classes providing basic properties
Support for transparent auditing (created, last changed)
Possibility to integrate custom repository code
Easy Spring integration via JavaConfig and custom XML namespaces
Advanced integration with Spring MVC controllers
Experimental support for cross-store persistence

Spring Data is an umbrella project consisting of independent projects with, in principle, different release cadences. To manage the portfolio, a BOM (Bill of Materials - see this example) is published with a curated set of dependencies on the individual project. The release trains have names, not versions, to avoid confusion with the sub-projects.
The names are an alphabetic sequence (so you can sort them chronologically) with names of famous computer scientists and software developers. When point releases of the individual projects accumulate to a critical mass, or if there is a critical bug in one of them that needs to be available to everyone, the release train will push out “service releases” with names ending “-SRX”, where “X” is a number.
Currently, the release train contains the following modules:
Spring Data Commons
Spring Data JPA
Spring Data KeyValue
Spring Data LDAP
Spring Data MongoDB
Spring Data Redis
Spring Data REST
Spring Data for Apache Cassandra
Spring Data for Apache Geode
Spring Data for Apache Solr
Spring Data for Pivotal GemFire
Spring Data Couchbase (community module)
Spring Data Elasticsearch (community module)
Spring Data Neo4j (community module)
