InfluxDB - a platform for builders

InfluxDB is a time series platform

InfluxDB empowers developers to build IoT, analytics and monitoring software. It is purpose-built to handle the massive volumes and countless sources of time-stamped data produced by sensors, applications and infrastructure.


Built for developers

Engineered for growth, with enterprise-grade security allowing developers to build anywhere: edge, cloud, on-prem.

Time series database

Ingest metrics, events and logs in a high-performing time series database capable of ingesting millions of data points per second.

Faster time to awesome

Perform analytics to get faster detection, and resolution, or set up alerts or anomaly detection with a simple click.

Powerful APIs and Tools

Developers using the InfluxDB platform build their applications with less effort, less code, and less configuration.

Unrestricted developer productivity

Client and server libraries in everything from React, JavaScript, Go, Python and more.

Why developers love using InfluxDB

Never start from scratch

Start from the UI or look under the hood to access raw code and the API. Collaborate with teammates to build and run applications with time series.

Vibrant community

The Influx Community is diverse and highly motivated, making contributions in code, documentation, and advocacy for the InfluxDB and Telegraf projects.

Powerful ecosystem

Streamline your workflow with over 200 Telegraf plugins, integrations with Grafana, Google Data Studio, or data sources like Google Bigtable.

IoT monitoring spotlight

InfluxDB helped BBOXX become data-driven by continuously monitoring this solar energy manufacturer’s geographically dispersed 85,000 solar rooftop units to provide insights into customer-usage patterns and anomaly detection.


"On scalability, we wanted to grow from monitoring 1,000 units to 20 million units. So we needed the system to be reliable and stable while growing between those two points. And we needed it to be fast, both for data collection and querying."
