Hey everyone! Quick question (sorry if this has been posted but could not find any answers out there). Is it possible to use the new Prefect Orion together with Airbyte for streaming data pipelines? Or does it only work with the standard Prefect product?

You can do anything in Orion that you can do in Python. And you can definitely trigger an Airbyte sync job using Python! šŸ™‚ A more concrete answer that you were likely looking for: The Airbyte integration for Orion is on our roadmap and it may get released within the next couple of weeks. The best way to stay updated on that is to hit the šŸ”” icon on the airbyte tag in Discourse - this way you'll get an email notification once this integration gets released.

Will Orion be available as open source as well or will it only be offered as a paid service?

You will be able to use both: ā€¢ a fully open-source workflow orchestration engine that by default ships with embedded SQLite database and UI - all of which can be started with a single command
prefect orion start
ā€¢ a Cloud product that will provide additional features including user management, managing various environments, and many more
