SD Times Open-Source Project of the Week: Airbyte

by Joseph K. Clark

Airbyte is a data integration platform that runs in the cloud and replicates data. It enables users to get their data pipelines running in minutes with either pre-built or custom connectors from the Airbyte UI, API, or CLI.  Developers simply need to authenticate their sources and get connectors that adapt to schema or API changes. 

The connectors are run in Docker containers and can be created in any language of choice, which frees up worrying about scheduling, orchestration, and monitoring. Developers can also adapt pre-built ones to their needs. Applications, APIs & databases to data warehouses, lakes, and other destinations.

Meanwhile, engineers can use raw data and analysts for normalized schemas due to available options that data can be leveraged. 

All errors are logged in full detail, and developers can set up a webhook to get notifications whenever sync fails.  Whenever Airbyte is self-hosted, the data doesn’t go to a 3rd-party service which eases the burden on security teams.  Additional details on the project are available here.
