Airbyte, the creator of the fastest-growing open source data integration platform, is announcing the launch of the Airbyte API, a developer-friendly interface that enables data and software engineers to manage large deployments more efficiently, as well as integrate Airbyte Cloud with other tools and utilize Airbyte functionality for data movement automation.
Automation is a key component of Airbyte’s API launch, eliminating the need for manual interaction via the Airbyte Cloud user interface; by interacting with Airbyte Cloud programmatically through the new API, engineers can automate a variety of data integration tasks at scale, helping to mitigate errors, increase efficiency, and free up engineer time, according to the vendor.
“The Airbyte API is enabling data engineers to manage their data infrastructure efficiently, freeing up time to concentrate on the core value of their business,” said Riley Brook, product lead at Airbyte. “Since the beta release, we’ve seen a fast rate of adoption as a go-to tool for data teams. Now with the Airbyte API being publicly available, we expect to see that accelerate even further.”
Additional benefits include:
- Data automation for large-scale deployments
- Integration with existing tools within ELT infrastructures to simplify the management and monitoring of data pipelines, including orchestration tools like Airflow, Dagster, or Prefect
- An upcoming inclusion of a Terraform SDK, which will aid in defining configurations and automating deployments for CI/CD pipelines
Trish Quintans, data engineering lead at Fillip Fleet and early adopter of the Airbyte API explained that it “enables us to streamline our entire ELT processing workflow without having to worry about the multiple tools we're using.”
