Hello everyone. I’m new to using airbyte and see a lot of promise in it. I have the following two questions: 1. How does airbyte scale when it comes to ingesting multiple api andpoints? Is each connector an isolated compute environment? 2. In the https://docs.airbyte.com/deploying-airbyte/on-gcp-compute-engine documentation, I noticed that the docker compose has the database hosted on the same virtual machine as the airbyte server. Can airbyte be configured with external databases hosted on another vm or something like cloud sql for resiliency? 3. Is it possible to programmatically add custom connectors when deploying airbyte? From this page it looks like you can only add new connectors through the UI: https://docs.airbyte.com/integrations/custom-connectors
1. yes, each connector trigger each docker container 2. yes, check the docs: https://docs.airbyte.com/operator-guides/configuring-airbyte-db 3. you can use the API to add new custom connectors, see the endpoint here: https://airbyte-public-api-docs.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/rapidoc-api-docs.html#post-/v1/sources/create
Thanks so much Marcos!
