Customer Success Story: Drivy
Drivy is Europe’s #1 peer-to-peer car rental service. Drivers can rent the cars available in their areas to go on a weekend or business trip. Today they offer 38,000 cars to over a million users in Europe and is powered by their website and mobile apps (iOS & Android). Drivy uses InfluxData’s InfluxDB for DevOps monitoring. They store raw metrics as well as aggregated data about their production systems. InfluxDB has allowed Drivy to replace Graphite and they are currently in the process of replacing New Relic as well.
The Drivy team chose InfluxDB for several reasons including:
- No performance impact to their application
- No external dependencies
- InfluxQL – a SQL-like query syntax
- Easy deployment
- Aggregation is under our own control thanks to Continuous Queries (CQs)
- Support for UDP
- Data is pushed
- Blog: Instrumenting Sidekiq.
