The 10 Coolest Big Data Tools Of 2021 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

Managing ever-growing volumes of data continues to be a challenge for business and organizations. Here are 10 cool big data management tools and platforms that have caught our attention.

Airbyte

Early stage startup Airbyte (founded in January 2020) develops an open-source data integration platform for replicating and consolidating data from different sources into databases, data warehouses and data lakes. Organizations can use the platform to build pipelines between data sources, including operational applications such as Salesforce and Facebook Ads, and cloud data warehouses such as Snowflake and AWS Redshift.

While Airbyte is competing with a host of established vendors of ETL (extract, transform and load) tools, the company touts the simplicity of its software, maintaining that even nontechnical business analysts can use it to replicate data. And the startup’s open-source approach has created an active user community that is rapidly developing additional connectors for the platform.

Between January and May of this year, Airbyte’s customer base grew eight-fold to more than 2,000. The San Francisco-based company raised $26 million in Series A funding in May.
