Subject Re: parquet vs orc files

In the latest version both are equally well supported.

You need to insert the data sorted on filtering columns
Then you will benefit from min max indexes and in case of orc additional from bloom filters,
if you configure them.
In any case I recommend also partitioning of files (do not confuse with Spark partitioning

What is best for you you have to figure out in a test. This highly depends on the data and
the analysis you want to do.
