Hosting Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) Local-runner on Amazon ECS Fargate for development and testing
Data scientists and engineers have made Apache Airflow a leading open-source tool to create data pipelines due to its active open-source community, familiar Python development as Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) workflows, and an extensive library of pre-built integrations. Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) is a managed service for Apache Airflow that makes it easy to run Airflow on AWS without the operational burden of having to manage the underlying infrastructure.
While business needs demand scalability, availability, and security, Airflow development often doesn’t require full production-ready infrastructure. Many DAGs are written locally, and when doing so, developers need to be assured that these workflows function correctly when they’re deployed to their production environment. To that end, the MWAA team created an open-source local-runner that uses many of the same library versions and runtimes as MWAA in a container that can run in a local Docker …Read More...
