In my thesis dissertation, I need to use a picture to illustrate how Spark clusters are built. Ideally, I would like to reuse this picture for illustrating Spark components: https://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/img/cluster-overview.png

Is it allowed? Who am I supposed to ask permission otherwise?

FYI my thesis is purely academic and does not target any company or business usage.

The hosting website makes it clear in the footer that the content is "Copyright © 2018 The Apache Software Foundation, Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0", so you may use that diagram under those terms.
