Title: InfluxDB 2.0 Alpha Release and the Road Ahead
Author: Paul Dix
Abstract: This article, published by DZone and written by InfluxData Founder and CTO Paul Dix, covers the InfluxDB 2.0 alpha release. The author begins by noting that InfluxData’s vision for 2.0 is to collapse the TICK Stack into one cohesive and consistent whole, incorporating the time series database, UI and dashboarding tool, and the background processing and monitoring agent behind a single API. In this article, he covers the planned development process through alpha, then beta, and then general availability of the 2.0 release. He also discusses Flux, InfluxData’s new data scripting and query language and one of the “biggest parts of InfluxDB 2.0”. He concludes with inviting community feedback to this early release.
