By Company / Oct 05, 2021 / InfluxData, Newsroom, Press Releases
Silver sponsor and one of the largest Kubernetes users to show use cases through onsite sessions
SAN FRANCISCO, October 5, 2021 – InfluxData, creator of the leading time series platform InfluxDB, today announced it will sponsor and exhibit at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2021, which takes place October 11-15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. InfluxData experts will be onsite at booth #S62, conducting live demonstrations and answering questions on its Kubernetes use case, including how to expedite Time To Awesome™ with Kubernetes deployments. InfluxData is a Silver sponsor of the event.
“Our customers are building applications that are increasingly reliant on multi-cloud, multi-region strategies, but managing data between regions and across cloud providers is cost and time prohibitive,” said Rick Spencer, Vice President of Platform at InfluxData. “By building InfluxDB Cloud on Kubernetes as a cloud abstraction layer, we can ensure our customers have computing resources wherever they need them, regardless of where their data resides. With thousands of organizations using InfluxDB Cloud, Kubernetes enabled us to scale our platform in a way no other technology available today can.”
InfluxDB Cloud is one of the largest commercially available services utilizing Kubernetes. InfluxData leverages Kubernetes as the core orchestration layer to create and deliver InfluxDB Cloud across 10 global cloud clusters among AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. With Kubernetes, InfluxData can give customers the serverless experience they desire in a way that wouldn’t be possible without the orchestration.
