>Airflow provides a system for authoring and managing workflows a.k.a.

>Airflow was developed at Airbnb to enable easier authorship and
>management of DAGs than were possible with existing solutions such as
>Oozie and Azkaban. For starters, both Oozie and Azkaban rely on one or
>more XML or property files to be bundled together to define a
>workflow. This separation of code and config can present a challenge
>to understanding the DAG - in Azkaban, a DAG¹s structure is reflected
>by its file system tree and one can find himself/herself traversing
>the file system when inspecting or changing the structure of the DAG.
>Airflow workflows, on the other hand, are simply and elegantly defined
>in Python code, often a single file. Airflow merges the powerful
>Web-based management aspects of projects like Azkaban and Oozie with
>the simplicity and elegance of defining workflows in Python. Airflow,
>less than a year old in terms of its Open Source launch, is currently
>used in production environments in more than 30 companies and boasts
>an active contributor list of more than 100 developers, the vast
>majority of which (>95%) are outside of Airbnb.
