Estuary is building the next generation of real-time data integration solutions.

We're creating a new kind of DataOps platform that empowers engineering teams to build real-time, data-intensive pipelines and applications at scale, with minimal friction, in a UI or CLI. We aim to make real-time data accessible to the analyst, while bringing power tooling to the streaming enthusiast. Flow unifies a team's databases, pub/sub systems, and SaaS around their data, without requiring new investments in infrastructure or development.

Estuary develops in the open to produce both the runtime for our managed service and an ecosystem of open-source connectors. You can read more about our story here.

9 years of real-time innovation
Estuary history

about us


We didn't start at trying to make real-time data flows more accessible by abstracting away the low-level work… it is just what happened.

Our team researched streaming frameworks while working with billions of daily events, and ultimately realized that we'd have to build our own (Gazette) to have a scalable distributed streaming framework that is built with kappa architectures in mind, required less continuous resource management, and could unify both our batch and real-time pipelines.

We've been innovating to make real-time data more accessible to all ever since.
