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 applications at scale with minimal friction. This platform 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. We’re passionate about providing data integration tools for users across a spectrum of use-cases, industries, and budgets. You can read more about our story here.
