  • Why isn’t there a decent file format for tabular data?
    13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 May 2022
    Hi folks, Stavros from TileDB here. Here are my two cents on tabular data. TileDB (Embedded) is a very serious competitor to Parquet, the only other sane choice IMO when it comes to storing large volumes of tabular data (especially when combined with Arrow). Admittedly, we haven’t been advertising TileDB’s tabular capabilities, but that’s only because we were busy with much more challenging applications, such as genomics (population and single-cell), LiDAR, imaging and other very convoluted (from a data format perspective) domains.

    Similar to Parquet:

    * TileDB is columnar and comes with a lot of compressors, checksum and encryption filters.

    * TileDB is built in C++ with multi-threading and vectorization in mind

    * TileDB integrates with Arrow, using zero-copy techniques

    * TileDB has numerous optimized APIs (C, C++, C#, Python, R, Java, Go)

    * TileDB pushes compute down to storage, similar to what Arrow does

    Better than Parquet:

    * TileDB is multi-dimensional, allowing rapid multi-column conditions

    * TileDB builds versioning and time-traveling into the format (no need for Delta Lake, Iceberg, etc)

    * TileDB allows for lock-free parallel writes / parallel reads with ACID properties (no need for Delta Lake, Iceberg, etc)

    * TileDB can handle more than tables, for example n-dimensional dense arrays (e.g., for imaging, video, etc)

    Happy to hear everyone’s thoughts.

    It could be worth checking out TileDB: https://github.com/TileDB-Inc/TileDB The entire system, down to the data format itself, is optimized around storing multi-dimensional arrays. It also supports timestamps and real numbers as dimensions, which could be handy given your example data. [Full disclosure: I currently work for TileDB.]

    TileDB, Inc. | Full-Time | REMOTE | USA | Greece | https://tiledb.com

    TileDB, Inc. is the company behind TileDB, the first universal data engine. TileDB allows analytics professionals and data scientists to access, analyze, and share complex data sets with any tool at extreme scale. TileDB overcomes the constraints of columnar tables, flat files, and SQL-only tools, handling all data with a multi-dimensional array engine and extreme interoperability across the data science ecosystem. TileDB Cloud is a totally serverless offering of TileDB, which delivers access control and enables distributed computing at planet-scale, eliminating all cluster management and minimizing cost. TileDB, Inc. was spun out of MIT and Intel Labs in May 2017 and closed a $15M Series A in July 2020, following a previous $4M Seed Round.
