AWS Data Pipeline vs Pipelines: What are the differences?
Developers describe AWS Data Pipeline as "Process and move data between different AWS compute and storage services". AWS Data Pipeline is a web service that provides a simple management system for data-driven workflows. Using AWS Data Pipeline, you define a pipeline composed of the “data sources” that contain your data, the “activities” or business logic such as EMR jobs or SQL queries, and the “schedule” on which your business logic executes. For example, you could define a job that, every hour, runs an Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR)–based analysis on that hour’s Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) log data, loads the results into a relational database for future lookup, and then automatically sends you a daily summary email. On the other hand, Pipelines is detailed as "Machine Learning Pipelines for Kubeflow". Kubeflow is a machine learning (ML) toolkit that is dedicated to making deployments of ML workflows on Kubernetes simple, portable, and scalable. Kubeflow pipelines are reusable end-to-end ML workflows built using the Kubeflow Pipelines SDK.
AWS Data Pipeline and Pipelines are primarily classified as "Data Transfer" and "Machine Learning" tools respectively.
Pipelines is an open source tool with 946 GitHub stars and 250 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Pipelines's open source repository on GitHub.
