Organizations Can Now See Established Organizational Policies for Faster Time to Market while Preserving Data Security and Privacy

SAN FRANCISCO — Aug. 14, 2018 — InfluxData, the modern Open Source Platform built specifically for metrics, events and other time series data that empowers developers to build next-generation monitoring, analytics and IoT applications, today announced the latest release of InfluxDB Enterprise, which delivers LDAP integration, new advanced analytics and self-healing capabilities in the leading time series database platform.

The increasing complexity of systems is driving the need for observability since even a small improvement in system behavior can have a significant impact on the bottom line. Time series data, collected and stored with InfluxData’s Time Series database platform, is integral to observability and is becoming mission critical for organizations. Today’s enhancements to InfluxDB Enterprise make it easier for administrators to keep this mission critical data available and secure by checking and verifying every requested action – including creating databases, storing data and running queries – against a user’s stored authorizations and role.

Updates to InfluxDB Enterprise include:

  • Integration with LDAP: InfluxDB Enterprise now supports authenticating users against LDAP, making it easier for site administrators to securely manage critical time series data and users. This also speeds adoption of the InfluxData platform by improving the user experience through single sign-on (SSO) and meeting security compliance requirements of internal operations for protecting private data.
  • Advanced Analytical Functions: InfluxData's new release adds advanced analytical functions for mathematical and advanced financial modeling, enabling use of time series data to create complex financial models. These functions are important for data analysis to help teams understand system behavior to predict outages in early stages.
  • Advanced Data Replication: InfluxData's advanced data replication with self-healing automatically detects data inconsistencies, resulting for example from hardware failure or user error, and resolves them so data across all nodes is consistent. This gives the team peace of mind knowing that the data they rely so heavily on to keep their systems running is always available.

“Time series platforms are being adopted faster than any other database technology, due to their unique abilities to monitor and analyze IoT, DevOps, Cloud, and Containers; and provide analytics for real-time decision making,” said Mark Herring, InfluxData CMO. “As time series platforms continue to gain broader adoption within the enterprise, it’s imperative that these platforms fit well with the rest of the IT systems.”

Metrics, events, and other time-based data are being generated at an exponential rate, as there is a growing requirement for analyzing today’s complex environments. The InfluxData Platform provides a comprehensive set of tools and services to accumulate metrics and events data, analyze the data, and act on the data via powerful visualizations and notifications. Its InfluxDB database is the overwhelming leader among Time Series Database management systems, according to DB-Engines' latest results published earlier this quarter. InfluxData’s unique features enable customers to quickly build:

  • Monitoring, alerting and notification applications supporting their DevOps initiatives
  • IoT applications supporting millions of events per second, providing new business value around predictive maintenance and real-time alerting and control
  • Real-time analytics applications that are focused on streaming data and anomaly detection
