Detailed documentation on collecting and managing your event data securely with RudderStack

What is RudderStack?

RudderStack is an open-source, enterprise-ready platform for collecting, storing and routing customer event data to your data warehouse and dozens of other tools. It provides a powerful transformation framework to process your event data on the fly.

RudderStack Server is released under the AGPLv3 license.

Why RudderStack?

We built RudderStack because we believe that open source and the cloud premise is important for three main reasons:

  • Privacy and Security: You should be able to collect and store your customer data without sending everything to a third-party vendor or embedding proprietary SDKs. With RudderStack, the event data is always in your control. Besides, it gives you fine-grained control over what data to forward to which analytical tool.

  • Processing Flexibility: With a powerful JavaScript-based event transformation framework, RudderStack makes it possible for you to enhance or transform your event data by combining it with your other internal data, e.g. stored in your transactional systems. Furthermore, since RudderStack runs inside your cloud or on-premise environment, you can access your production data to join with the event data.

  • Unlimited Events: Event volume-based pricing of most commercial systems is broken. With RudderStack, you are be able to collect as much data as possible without worrying about overrunning event budgets.

RudderStack's core Backend Engine is open-source and free to use.

Key Features

  • Integration with destinations such as Google Analytics, Amplitude, MixPanel, Adjust, AppsFlyer, Facebook, and more. Also, integration with data warehouses such as Amazon S3 and Redshift.

  • Integration with client-side SDKs for JavaScript, Android, iOS, and Unity.
