We like bold and simple designs.
Artwork/Iconography that hint towards fast data pipelines, firehose of data, data engine, data insights, etc are interesting. We tend to gravitate towards simple clean designs. We are targeting developers, so a memorable simple iconic design is likely the best. We are nerds and like things that have aeronautical and space references/designs. But no rockets, thats oversaturated in our opinion.
Afterburners, aircraft, jet engine, turbofan, turbo's, comets, fireballs, nozzles
A play on the turbofan/jet engine could be cool:
Something about this image is amazing:
Our product uses the open source projects Kafka, and PipelineDB/PostgreSQL under the covers. So we don't want to copy or be too close to those logos. Apache Spark (a star) is a pseudo competitor, so we don't want to copy that.
