Title: Flux: InfluxData’s New Language for Time-Series Data
Author: Susan Hall
Abstract: This article, published by The New Stack and written by Susan Hall, discusses the growing popularity of times series databases. The article covers InfluxData’s new query and scripting language called Flux, that “decouples querying and storage” and “allows users to define complex queries through a set of functional transformations on data.” The article quotes InfluxData founder and CTO Paul Dix about why Flux is more than a query language and covers his in-depth explanation about Flux’s strengths and functionality. Also mentioned in the article is the fact that InfluxData plans for a model that includes both input and output plugins.
