Features

An orchestration platform

Build a complex pipeline within a couple of minutes.

All kinds of flows!

Kestra understands the construction of your flow and handles any workflow with parallel, loop dependent flows. Systems can fail; let Kestra handle the retry process.

All plugins!

Plugins offer deep integration with systems enabling users to make complex workflows without relying on the command line. Use an official one or simply build your own!

Cloud native and scalable!

Kestra has been built with leading cloud-native technologies and a strong architecture! Scale to millions of executions without hassle.

A scheduling platform

Launch your flows whatever the need

Event based

Kestra can execute flows based on events coming from core or plugins such as:

Time-based scheduling!

Or execute your flows at regular intervals based on a cron expression, if you have more complex needs and rely on conditions to limit the scheduling of your flows (e.g., first day of the month, weekend only, etc.)., weekend only, ...

API or UI based!

If you haven’t found a suitable option, you can still rely on Kestra API (a simple cURL can do the job), webhook to trigger a flow from any application or simply start it directly from the Web UI.

An extensible data orchestrator

Kestra is built with data at its heart and integrates directly with your source and destination; no need to choose between ETL or ELT — both are possible.

ETL or ELT!

Don’t be left choosing between ETL or ELT — Kestra handles both at scale. Choose the method you need: convert from standard format, , use task to transform data directly, or load raw data and let the database do the hard work.

Directly connected to systems!

Plugins offer rich integrations with all the underlying systems. Get rich outputs, gather metrics for all tasks executed.

Cloud native & scalable !

Kestra is robust and built with the top cloud-native technologies! Scale to millions of executions hassle free.
