Earlier this week we announced that we are ready for the world to start using InfluxDB Cloud 2.0, the next version of the most popular time series database, in production. I love InfluxDB, and joined the company because it is so easy and fun to use while also being a battle-hardened production database. InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 is suitable for monitoring infrastructure (including easily monitoring your Kubernetes cluster) but is also very popular for IoT projects.

Monitoring dynamic, distributed environments often results in costly monitoring solution choices for developers seeking scalability, but your monitoring solution doesn’t have to be expensive. Sensu, InfluxDB, and Grafana — open source tools with enterprise counterparts — can work together to create a complete, scalable monitoring solution encompassing event monitoring, data ingestion and dashboarding.

Today we’re excited to announce the general release of InfluxDB Cloud 2.0. InfluxDB 2.0 brings together storage, UI and visualization (formerly Chronograf), processing, monitoring and alerting (formerly Kapacitor) into one cohesive whole. It’s the evolution of the TICK Stack into a single unified experience with InfluxDB 2.0 in the center and Telegraf data collectors at the edge. There’s a common API that is shared between open source InfluxDB 2.0 and InfluxDB Cloud 2.0.

Everything related to how IT services are delivered and consumed is undergoing tremendous change. Monolithic architectures are being replaced by microservices-driven apps and the cloud- based infrastructure is being tied together and instrumented by DevOps processes.

Companies are committed to delivering on higher levels of customer satisfaction for their online services. Unfortunately, many organizations trying to support these initiatives take an interrupt-driven approach where they scramble to fix things when they break. However, to manage to these high levels of SLAs, you should take a structured approach in order to reduce the amount of unscheduled downtime by proactively monitoring and managing your systems.

In this technical paper, we’ll compare the performance and features of InfluxDB 1.4.2 vs. Elasticsearch 5.6.3 for common time series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of these technologies for their use case.

In this technical paper, we’ll explore the aspects of scaling clusters of the InfluxEnterprise product, primarily through the lens of write performance of InfluxDB Clusters. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of InfluxEnterprise for their use case, in addition to helping establish some rough guidelines for what those users should expect in terms of write performance in a real-world environment.

We are all used to building dashboards for great visualizations, but the issue becomes how to share and collaborate on instrumentation and dashboard design. In this talk, Tim Hall will drill down on dashboard sharing, how to iterate and improve on dashboards within a repository, and lessons learned in sharing and collaborating on dashboards.
