      Apache Airflow

      For a quick job scanning of status and deep-diving into job issues, details, and flows, AirFlow does a good job. No fuss, no muss. The low learning curve as the UI is very straightforward, and navigating it will be familiar after spending some time using it. Our requirements are pretty simple. Job scheduler, workflows, and monitoring. The jobs we run are >100, but still is a lot to review and troubleshoot when jobs don't run. So when managing large jobs, AirFlow dated UI can be a bit of a drawback.

      Pros

      Apache Airflow

      • In charge of the ETL processes.
      • As there is no incoming or outgoing data, we may handle the scheduling of tasks as code and avoid the requirement for monitoring.

      Cons

      Apache Airflow

      • they should bring in some time based scheduling too not only event based
      • they do not store the metadata due to which we are not able to analyze the workflows
      • they only support python as of now for scripted pipeline writing
