Customer Success Story: Wayfair
The Wayfair systems are spread across three major data centers and the data is used by their developers, business stakeholders, and by their internal alerting engine. Most importantly, their 24×7 Ops Monitoring Center is using this data to constantly analyze the vital signs of Wayfair’s IT infrastructure and storefront operations. At the 3 data centers, they use Kafka Mirror Maker to replicate the data to all 3 locations and they have (3) 6 node InfluxDB Enterprise clusters, which are dedicated to different workloads:
- Store Front metrics
- General monitoring of things like Kafka queues, containers, etc.
- All other application monitoring

The Four R’s of Metrics Delivery
Jim Hagan from Wayfair describes the Wayfair environment and the data pipeline they’ve built so far for metric collection, delivery, and use. They currently use both Graphite and InfluxDB as a Time Series Platform and send a diverse set of event trackers, timers, and other system metrics from over 2,000 VMs running hundreds of applications.
