Apache Arrow is a columnar format for storing tabular data in memory. It works well with the Apache Parquet format when doing data analysis.

When to use Arrow

Apache Arrow works well as an in-memory data format. Arrow data can be shared between multiple libraries without copying, serialization or desearialization.

Apache Arrow and Apache Parquet are often used together. Tabular data can be stored in Apache Parquet format, which compresses well, and converted to Apache Arrow for analysis. Arrow does not compress as well as Parquet, but performs better for data analysis in RAM.
