Beam is a next-generation live streaming platform for gamers that lets viewers participate in the gameplay itself. Instead of sitting idle, viewers get to engage with the content directly, creating quests, choosing weapons, or even acting as characters within the game world.

Beam uses InfluxData to provide all the monitoring and alerting requirements of its platform. For visualization Beam uses Grafana, which they found was easy to integrate with InfluxDB and highly performant.
