Astro is engineered for stability and performance
— including seamless in-place Airflow upgrades, pipeline observability and lineage, infra cost optimization and monitoring, and much more.
VTEX Achieved Consistency Across Its Data Environments with Astro
VTEX had been using a cloud-managed Airflow service, but it proved difficult to utilize and maintain. The managed service lacked a pre-built Airflow runtime and could not easily support a reproducible local development environment in which users could build, test, and debug their pipelines.
Now, we can test our DAGs and connect remotely to our Redshift cluster while being sure that everything we are doing here in our machine will also work on the production cluster. It’s been very significant to us.

Increase team productivity with a fully-managed orchestration platform that just works
- In-place upgrades maximize time spent on innovative data-driven work, and not DevOps.
- Fully-managed and SLA-driven support from the Astronomer team that minimizes your operational burden.
- Amazon’s MWAA has lagged several versions behind the most recent Airflow and offers no easy path to upgrade, meaning customers either lack the benefits of new Airflow features, or spend cycles upgrading their environments.
Observability and lineage
- Give your team full visibility into their workflows and lineage of data pipelines to identify and remediate pipeline issues with ease
