Customer Success Story: tado°
tado° uses InfluxDB Cloud to gather analytics data collected from its hundreds of thousands of units across the globe. tado° uses this data to power its smartphone apps which helps its customers understand their energy usage and determine their ideal setting. This IoT monitoring use case shows how using the right tool to power tado°’s IoT platform gives the company the proper insights to generate energy savings for its customers.
The Challenge: To help get their service to market quickly, the tado° team built their first metrics database using MySQL. As their business grew, they realized that they needed a solution that was performant and could scale with them, so they chose InfluxDB to power their IoT platform. And even though they switched to InfluxDB for their time series database, they continued to use the old MySQL solutions to drive the user reports (graphs) in their app. These graphs were slow and had limited capabilities.
The Result: tado° decided to switch from using their legacy MySQL solution to InfluxDB to power the user reports. In addition, they were able to add new capabilities to the reports to make driving energy efficiency even easier for their customers.
“Customers realize that the new user report generated with InfluxDB is cool and very fast, so they will use it more. With this increase in use, we expect higher data loads that we know InfluxDB can handle.”
