Airbyte has developed an open-source data integration/ELT (extract, load and transform) engine that businesses and organizations use to quickly build data pipelines, using both provided and custom connectors, that replicate data between databases, data warehouses and data lakes.
The company is challenging established data management tech vendors like Informatica and Talend as well as younger ELT vendors including Fivetran and Matillion. Airbyte currently offers a free community edition of its software and is developing commercial cloud and enterprise editions with extended capabilities.
Launched last year, Airbyte in May closed a $26 million Series A funding round led by Benchmark. That came on the heels of a $5.2 million seed round of funding in March.
