Discover the core components of Apache Pinot, enabling efficient data processing and analytics. Unleash the power of Pinot's building blocks for high-performance data-driven applications.

Apache Pinot™ is a database designed to deliver highly concurrent, ultra-low-latency queries on large datasets through a set of common data model abstractions. Delivering on these goals requires several foundational architectural commitments, including:

  • Storing data in columnar form to support high-performance scanning

  • Sharding of data to scale both storage and computation

  • A distributed architecture designed to scale capacity linearly

  • A tabular data model read by SQL queries
