Data security is at the core of the Meroxa platform. When you build a data pipeline using Meroxa, your data is encrypted in transit and at rest. Today’s platform update adds a new layer of security to Meroxa.

SSH Tunneling is now in public beta.

With SSH Tunneling, you gain the ability to securely communicate between resources that are not publicly available over the Internet. Tunneling is supported for both sources and destinations.

Getting Started

To get started with SSH Tunneling, when youcreate a resource via the Meroxa CLI, provide the new[\--ssh-url]( option.

This new option allows you to point to a bastion host that will be used for the resource connection. Typically, this host is publicly available to a fixed list of IP addresses and has access to resources that are not available to the public.

After creation, Meroxa will provide a public key you can add to your bastion host environment. Then, you can immediately start building real-time pipelines.

I can’t wait to see what you build 🚀

As always,
