batch Google Cloud Storage to Parquet in minutes
Google Cloud Storage, or GCS, is an object storage service offered by Google. GCS is a cost effective, durable and elastic resource, making it easy to store data in the cloud.
Google Cloud Storage lets you organize their data into “buckets” and provision access, so you can share data quickly, easily, and safely.
Apache Parquet is an open-source, column-oriented data storage format of the Hadoop ecosystem designed to provide fast querying on large datasets. Parquet is routinely used for creating very highly scaled data lakes that can still be queried. Parquet is similar to other column-storage file formats that are available in Hadoop.
Estuary builds free, open-source connectors to extract data from GCS as soon as it arrives, allowing you to easily create always-up-to-date copies of that data across your systems.
Data can then be directed to Parquet using materializations that are also open-source. Connectors have the ability to push data as quicikly as a destination will handle. Parquet likes files that are around 1 GB each. So, if you have high data volumes, Flow can keep your data lake up-to-date in near real-time.

Estuary helps move data fromGoogle Cloud Storage to Parquet in minutes with millisecond latency.
Estuary enables the first fully managed ELT service that combines both millisecond-latency and point-and-click simplicity. Flow empowers customers to analyze and act on both historical and real-time data across their analytics and operational systems for a truly unified and up-to-date view.
Flow is developed in the open and utilizes open source connectors that are compatible with a community standard. By making connectors interchangeable with other systems, the Estuary team hopes to expand the ecosystem for everyone’s benefit, empowering organizations of all sizes to build frictionless data pipelines, regardless of their existing data stack.
