About SSH

SSH is a secure protocol for remote login and command-line execution. It’s commonly used in data orchestration to run jobs on remote machines, such as an EC2 instance. You can use Astro to securely connect to any machine in your data ecosystem with Airflow’s SSH provider.

Use Case

Executing commands on remote hosts is a common use case in data orchestration. Astro allows you to easily run tasks that run commands using SSH as part of a broader data pipeline.
