Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup was straightforward and it does not take long to complete.""The best part of Airflow is its direct support for Python, especially because Python is so important for data science, engineering, and design. This makes the programmatic aspect of our work easy for us, and it means we can automate a lot.""I like the UI rework, it's much easier.""We have been quite satisfied with the stability of the solution.""The reason we went with Airflow is its DAG presentation, that shows the relationships among everything. It's more of a configuration-driven workflow.""I found the following features very useful: DAG - Workload management and orchestration of tasks using.""The product integrates well with other pipelines and solutions."

Cons
"The dashboard is connected into the BPM flow that could be improved.""Technical support is an area that needs improvement.""The scalability of the solution itself is not as we expected. Being on the cloud, it should be easy to scale, however, it's not.""One specific feature that is missing from Airflow is that the steps of your workflow are not pipelined, meaning the stageless steps of any workflow. Not every workflow can be implemented within Airflow.""I would like to see it more friendly for other use cases.""We're currently using version 1.10, but I understand that there's a lot of improvements in version 2. In the earlier version that we're using, we sometimes have problems with maintenance complexity. Actually using Airflow is okay, but maintaining it has been difficult.""UI can be improved with additional user-friendly features for non-programmers and for fewer coding practitioner requirements."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing for the product is reasonable."
  • "Although Airflow is open source software, there's also commercial support for it by Astronomer. We personally don't use the commercial support, but it's always an option if you don't mind the extra cost."
  • "We are using the open-source version of Apache Airflow."

    Overview

    Airflow is a platform to programmatically author, schedule and monitor workflows.

    Use airflow to author workflows as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) of tasks. The airflow scheduler executes your tasks on an array of workers while following the specified dependencies. Rich command line utilities make performing complex surgeries on DAGs a snap. The rich user interface makes it easy to visualize pipelines running in production, monitor progress, and troubleshoot issues when needed.

    When workflows are defined as code, they become more maintainable, versionable, testable, and collaborative.
