Author: Katy Farmer
Abstract: This article by DevRel at InfluxData Katy Farmer, published in The New Stack on 15 February 2018, answers the question of why developers should use a Time Series Database for time series use cases. Farmer discusses the unique nature of time series data. She explains that a database purpose-built for time series (metrics and events) carries multiple benefits for developers, including scalability and usability. In concluding, she underscores the need to choose a database based on the use case at hand, rather than just choosing tools or products.
