Title: InfluxDB Moves to Cloud-Native Architecture
Author: TC Currie
Abstract: This article, published in The New Stack and written by TC Currie, discusses InfluxData’s move to a cloud-native architecture. Currie covers each of the TICK Stack’s four components (Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf, Kapacitor). The author also quotes InfluxData Founder and CTO Paul Dix to highlight the importance of decoupling the components in the architecture. She mentions the existence of two types of time series data—that occurring at regular intervals (metrics) and at irregular intervals (events)—and how the TICK Stack is designed to work well for both. She concludes by covering Flux, InfluxData’s new query language.
