Temporal compared to Airflow

We have use cases where we want to orchestrate business workflows and have been exploring options like Airflow (expertise available in my company), temporal/cadence (new to my company), conductor, etc.

We would like to trigger the workflow via APIs and then track them. The system should support multiple concurrent workflow runs. I need some thoughts from experts here.

There have been many articles highlighting scheduling delays between tasks in Airflow. I am sceptical if airflow will meet our scalability and near-real-time needs.

Is there any such behaviour in Temporal as well. If not, why? If yes, how can we manage that?

I"m not an expert on Airflow, so I’ll let others who have experience with both systems comment.

our scalability and near-real-time needs.

What exactly are your scalability and real-time needs? Temporal is used for many highly scalable and interactive systems. But everyone has different requirements.

Here are some comparisons between tools like Airflow/Prefect and Temporal: What are the pros and cons of Temporal with respect to Prefect? - #3 by loren
