Voltron Data Supported Technologies
Our Dev Edition and Pro Edition subscriptions include professional,
on-demand support for Apache Arrow and related open source technologies in the data analytics ecosystem.
Arrow is the go-to project for data analytics systems that need to move and process data fast. Started in 2016, Arrow has since become the de facto standard for efficient in-memory columnar analytics and low-overhead data transport, with support for more than 12 programming languages. Beyond providing an in-memory data format and protocols for interoperability, Arrow offers an expansive toolbox of modular computing libraries to provide a strong foundation for the next generation of analytical computing systems.
Apache Parquet is an open source, column-oriented data file format designed for efficient data storage and retrieval. Since it was first introduced in 2013, Apache Parquet has seen widespread adoption as a storage format for fast analytical querying using efficient data compression and encoding schemes with enhanced performance to handle complex data in bulk. Each Parquet file stores both the data and the standards used for accessing each record—making it easier to decouple services that write, store, and read files.
Ibis is an open source Python framework for accessing data and performing analytical computations using multiple backends, including SQL databases like PostgreSQL and MySQL and big data systems like Google’s BigQuery. Use this lightweight interface to future-proof possible migrations, unify SQL calls for diverse backends, reduce compute load on the frontend, and provide users with a powerful expression language that is familiar and cohesive to read.

What our customers are saying
Here are some of the awesome things our customers have to say about us.
"We are thrilled to be working with Voltron Data. G-Research has long recognized the potential of Apache Arrow and helped to fund its early development by sponsoring Ursa Labs. With Arrow underpinning some of our most crucial production systems at G-Research, we know we can count on the team at Voltron Data to provide world-class support."
Alex Scammon, Head of Open Source Development, G-Research
"Apache Arrow is the key technology enabling improved performance, reduced memory footprint, and broader interoperability of the Columnar Table Backend in the KNIME Analytics Platform. We are excited to be partnering with Voltron Data to support the development of Apache Arrow, bringing powerful new capabilities to KNIME and the whole open source community."
Carsten Haubold, Software Engineer, KNIME
