Nexla Data Fabric

Nexla Data Fabric Architecture


Nexsets are a modern take on the traditional dataset that are automatically generated by Nexla’s continuous metadata intelligence layer. Each Nexset represents a logical collection of data, encapsulates schema, samples, error management, audit log, and access control all without making a copy of data. 


Nexla continuous intelligence layer is built on Data Fabric principles. This layer observes data at a record level, infers metadata from data, and combines that with system metadata to generate a deep understanding of data. 


Foundational to Nexla is a universal connector architecture which doesn’t suffer from the limitations of the old connector architectures. This combined with the abstractions in Nexsets means a single interface gives users all flavors of data flow – ETL, ELT, API Integration, API Proxy and Data-as-a-service. 

Make Data Usable

Nexla’s metadata intelligence delivers deep understanding of your data at single record-level. The active and system metadata is encapsulated in the logical data units called Nexsets which makes data easy to use and consume.

Integrate Data Faster

Nexla lets you integrate data from anywhere and provision usable data to any data system using any of the integration styles: ETL, ELT, API Integration, Data as a Service, or API Proxy. Say goodbye to integration backlogs.


Empower Data Users

Nexla empowers everyone who works with data to find, access, integrate, govern, and share data in a self-service way. Address the back and forth between data users and data engineers by letting users see and understand the data themselves.

Continuous Metadata Intelligence

All you have to do is provide credentials to the source and Nexla’s continuous metadata intelligence starts working.

It observes data and automatically creates Nexsets that neatly organize schema, samples, descriptions, annotations, ratings, and other metadata.

Nexsets: Logical Data Units

Nexsets are logical data units that abstract the underlying heterogeneity of data and provides a consistent interface to data regardless of source, format, and velocity.

They are auto-generated by a continuous intelligence process that analyzes data at record-level. Nexsets can be endlessly transformed into new Nexsets through no/low-code transformations.

Dynamic Data Integration

Nexla data fabric provides a unified way of dealing with multiple data integration styles for modern data teams.

Dynamic data integration means you can deliver integrated data through multiple data delivery styles.

It’s able to do this because of our unique universal connector technology that means you don’t need to create new connector every time a new data source comes up. Our standard connectors have been proven for hundreds of APIs and file-based sources.

Self-service Data Transformation

With Nexla, data users don’t have to wait for the engineers to get transformed data. Data users can see the sources, pipelines, preparation steps. An easy to use, simple interface means you can easily track down what data transformations were done and do the ones you want to do in a no/low code way without relying on expert data engineers.

Once the data pipeline is activated, all the transformations will be automatically executed and you will get prepared, ready to use data.

Adaptive Data Provisioning

Prepared, transformed, ready to use data can be automatically provisioned to any operational application, database, data warehouse, data lake, file, or any API. Nexla handles any to any integration in the truest sense.

For example, sending operational business data from Snowflake to Salesfoce, sending CSV files from a customer to an internal API in JSON format, sending data to Redshift or Bigquery are just a few examples of how our customers use the platform.

Automated Data Monitoring

Nexla platform delivers reliable data pipelines and automated monitoring on them through capabilities like continuous data validation, error management, notifications, and retry mechanisms.

Combined with the data integration and data transformation capabilities, Nexla provides the unified data operations platform needed by teams to run their mission-critical data.
