What is a project in Gretel Cloud?

A project in Gretel Cloud is like a lightweight container to hold a stream of records. A project must have its own unique name, similar to a S3 bucket name. Don't worry - we aren't storing any data in S3 (or anywhere to disk).

A project can then have a display name, description, and a README. Each data contains one primary record stream. Records you send to Gretel are written into this stream and go through entity detection and metadata extraction. By default, project streams only store the last 50,000 records that were received. This is so you can quickly examine the composition of your data.
