Announcements, Blogs, Videos and How-Tos

InfluxDB Clusters on Your Infrastructure

We are pleased to announce early access to InfluxEnterprise is now available! If you have been waiting for InfluxDB clustering to run on your infrastructure with the ability to rebalance nodes, plus a slick UI to deploy, manage and monitor the deployment, InfluxEnterprise is for you. Contact Sales to get a demo of InfluxEnterprise plus pricing information.




What did Endticket find compelling about InfluxDB? Continuous queries that work plus tagging and querying tags. Endticket uses InfluxDB to provide sales, venue entry, visitors/impressions and other kinds of statistics to their clients. Sure, they could have built it on top of HBase, or even MySQL, but that would have been a much harder uphill battle, whereas for Endticket, InfluxDB was born for this.

Endticket is building a white label ticket sales platform for events, venues, bands and festivals!


RedBlink uses InfluxDB to log all of BlueJay Music’s data including party created, songs played and songs liked. They then use this data to check if playlists are being created according to their contract obligations. They also produce compliance reports in regards to these contract obligations. RedBlink needed something scalable and something that could roll-up queries. InfluxDB proved to be perfect for these requirements.

The BlueJay Music app was developed by RedBlink and allows anyone to stream music from their Android, iOS or Windows device to friends. This is app is perfect for music lovers who want to listen to the same music together, but are geographically separated.


Hoiio uses InfluxDB as a database for their monitoring system. Hoiio has collectd agents running on each host and publishes metrics every 10s to InfluxDB regarding CPU, memory, load, etc of each instance. The metrics are then visualized in Grafana. Hoiio is monitoring 80+ instances and are very happy with the performance! Hoiio had to do minimal configuration to get into production. The most painful part for them was the configuration of the collectd metrics!

Hoiio is a cloud company providing modular software services to businesses on a subscription and usage based model.
