Customer Success Story: Smarsh
Smarsh offers a cloud-based platform for archiving, compliance and e-discovery. Their cloud platform requires a DevOps monitoring solution that allows Smarsh to continuously monitor networking and application networks. Smarsh found InfluxData’s InfluxDB as a replacement for Graphite as their metric storage system. They also leverage Telegraf as a local state check for system and services for its alerting infrastructure.
Beyond InfluxData being a popular open source time series platform, Smarsh found the ease of deployment, the simple HTTP API, and the ability to perform statistical analysis on measurements key to the adoption of InfluxDB. Also helpful was Telegraf’s ability to be a drop in replacement for diamond and can easily be wrapped around other tooling mechanisms.
