InfluxDB Cloud
The #1 Time Series Database For IoT

Get Started for Free

Every IoT use case is a time series use case

IoT - Internet of Things - is increasingly broad. IoT sensors, systems, and applications generate data that change over time. The exponential scale of IoT sensor deployment requires high storage and heavy data processing, and crosses nearly every industry from agriculture to oil & gas, to power generation, to consumer goods, and transportation

Built for developers, the InfluxDB platform is central to many IoT solutions providing high throughput data ingestion, high data compression and real-time querying of that same data.

Easy to build, scales automatically, free to start

InfluxDB is a performant, elastic purpose-built time series data platform that provides everything you need for your time series data, including metrics, events, logs, and traces.
Ingest billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality, and store, analyze, and act on that data – all in a single database. Native SQL support accelerates the getting started process.
Let us worry about infrastructure so you can focus on what matters most – your application.

Why InfluxDB



We built InfluxDB 3.0 as a columnar data structure on Apache Arrow, making it more scalable, resilient, and performant than ever before. Ingest and query data at massive scale to power real-time analytics applications.

Understand InfluxDB 3.0 architecture

Vibrant ecosystem of tools for builders

Build with InfluxDB 3.0 in the way that suits you best. Use familiar languages (like SQL), tools (Grafana, Tableau and Apache Superset), and open ecosystems to simplify data pipelines, build and integrate applications faster, and maximize the value of time series data.


Reduced total cost of ownership

InfluxDB 3.0 saves data as Apache Parquet files. Take advantage of Parquet’s superior data compression to store more high fidelity data in less space, which reduces your total costs of ownership.

Save on Data Storage Costs

Secure and reliable

InfluxDB 3.0 encrypts data at rest and in motion so it’s always safe. It complies with SOC 2 Type II standards, and has ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISO/IEC 27018:2019 certifications.

Connect InfluxDB to your systems

Maximize your productivity with familiar tools, including a RESTful API, 12+ client libraries, open source integrations, and native SQL support.

Connect to Google Data Studio, and other BI or data warehouses with open source ODBC and JDBC plugins based on Flight SQL.
