ITTool Box: The Apache® Software Foundation Unveils Apache® Arrow™, the Open Source Big Data In-memory Columnar Layer
Today, The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) announced Apache® Arrow™, the Open Source Big Data in-memory columnar layer. Since the founding of the project in January 2016, Apache Arrow has quickly become the defacto standard for representing and processing analytical data in memory, accelerating analytical processing and interchange by more than 100x.
Here is a quote from our CTO Jacques Nadeau:
“In just three years time, we are proud to see Arrow’s substantial industry adoption and increased value across a wide range of analytical, machine learning, and artificial intelligence workloads.”
