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 three data centers, they use Kafka Mirror Maker to replicate the data to all three locations and they have three, six-node InfluxDB Enterprise clusters, which are dedicated to different workloads:
- Storefront metrics
- General monitoring of things like Kafka queues, containers, etc.
- All other application monitoring
