Pachyderm – Automate data transformations with data versioning and lineage

Pachyderm is cost-effective at scale, enabling data engineering teams to automate complex pipelines with sophisticated data transformations across any type of data. Our unique approach provides parallelized processing of multi-stage, language-agnostic pipelines with data versioning and data lineage tracking. Pachyderm delivers the ultimate CI/CD engine for data.


  • Data-driven pipelines automatically trigger based on detecting data changes.
  • Immutable data lineage with data versioning of any data type.
  • Autoscaling and parallel processing built on Kubernetes for resource orchestration.
  • Uses standard object stores for data storage with automatic deduplication.
  • Runs across all major cloud providers and on-premises installations.

Getting Started

To start deploying your end-to-end version-controlled data pipelines, run Pachyderm locally or you can also deploy on AWS/GCE/Azure in about 5 minutes.

You can also refer to our complete documentation to see tutorials, check out example projects, and learn about advanced features of Pachyderm.
