Sakura Sky provides Apache Airflow as a managed service that is easy to manage and scalable for your data engineering needs. Take the worry out of managing your data orchestration.

When workflows are defined as code, they become more maintainable, versionable, testable, and collaborative. Sakura Sky manages and supports leading tools for data workflow orchestrating including Apache Airflow and Google Cloud Composer.

Apache Airflow (or simply Airflow) is a platform to programmatically author, schedule, and monitor workflows which allows your team 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. The rich user interface makes it easy to visualize pipelines running in production, monitor progress, and troubleshoot issues when needed.

Sakura’s team has many Airflow installations in production and provide support and management services for global brands.

Benefits of managed Apache Airflow

Apache Airflow managed by Sakura improves pipeline performance through our hands on optimizations, lowers infrastructure cost via efficient design, and removes the need for you to administer Airflow clusters.

Back by our Data Engineering and DataOps teams, we offer a complete end-to-end service from infrastructrue management to hands on code.

Managed Service

Besides the managing your worker node capacity and on tap DAG assistance, one of the most considerable advantages of our offering is the fact that it’s a managed service.

Your team no longer needs to monitor servers, worker nodes, and scheduler logs to ensure that all components of your pipelines and environment are working — Sakura Sky is responsible for keeping your environment up and running at all times.

The same is true for security patches and upgrades to new Airflow versions.

Any Cloud or On Prem

We offer complete architecture, implementation, and management services across any professional public Cloud provider as well as On Prem installations.

Our CloudOps team will ensure your Airflow environment takes advantage of the best possible architecture and provider services. Let us scale, manage, and secure your pipelines.

Fully Integrated

We ensure integration with other Cloud services to make it easier to manage communication between Airflow and other internal/external services running within your environment.

We know and support AWS MWAA and GCP Cloud Composer and offer design and implementation services to support them.

Security

Security by default, in flight and at rest. Our SecOps team audits and monitors your Airflow instances.

CI/CD & Data Pipeline Support

From a DevOps perspective, Sakura offers support in establishing a CI/CD pipeline for your DAGs in addition to full end-to-end Data Engineering and best practice implementations of your data pipelines.
