Airbyte Announces Certified Connectors for MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL Databases Enhancing AI Data Accessibility

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28, 2o23 — Airbyte, creators of the fastest-growing open-source data integration platform, today announced availability of certified connectors for MongoDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases, enabling datasets of unlimited size to be moved to any of Airbyte’s 68 supported destinations that include major cloud platforms (Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google), Databricks, Snowflake, and vector databases (Chroma, Milvus, Pinecone, Qdrant, Weaviate) which then can be accessed by artificial intelligence (AI) models.

Certified connectors (maintained and supported by Airbyte) are now available for both Airbyte Cloud and Airbyte Open Source Software (OSS) versions. The Airbyte connector catalog is the largest in the industry with more than 370 certified and community connectors. Also, users have built and are running more than 2,000 custom connectors created with the No-Code Connector Builder, which makes the construction and ongoing maintenance of Airbyte connectors much easier and faster.

“This makes a treasure trove of data available in these popular databases – MongoDB, MySQL, and Postgres – available to vector databases and AI applications,” said Michel Tricot, co-founder and CEO, Airbyte. “There are no limits on the amount of data that can be replicated to another destination with our certified connectors.”

Coming off the most recent Airbyte Hacktoberfest last month, there are now more than 20 Quickstart guides created by members of the user community, which provide step-by-step instructions and easy setup for different data movement use cases. For example, there are six for PostgreSQL related to moving data to Snowflake, BigQuery, and others. In addition, the community made 67 improvements to connectors that include migrations to no-code, which facilitates maintenance and upgrades.

Airbyte’s platform offers the following benefits:

  • The largest catalog of data sources that can be connected within minutes, and optimized for performance.
  • Availability of the no-code connector builder that makes it possible to easily and quickly create new connectors for data integrations that addresses the “long-tail” of data sources.
  • Ability to do incremental syncs to only extract changes in the data from a previous sync.
  • Built-in resiliency in the event of a disrupted session moving data, so the connection will resume from the point of the disruption.
  • Secure authentication for data access.
  • Ability to schedule and monitor status of all syncs.

Airbyte makes moving data easy and affordable across almost any source and destination, helping enterprises provide their users with access to the right data for analysis and decision-making. Airbyte has the largest data engineering contributor community – with more than 800 contributors – and the best tooling to build and maintain connectors.

Airbyte Open Source and connectors are free to use. Airbyte Cloud cost is based on usage with a pricing estimator here. To learn more about Airbyte and its capabilities, visit the Airbyte website.
