Why use InfluxDB Cloud?

It’s a performant, elastic, serverless 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 compatibility makes getting started quick and easy.

Cloud-native application

A cloud-native application that scales elastically as your workload demands change with usage-based pricing to ensure you only pay for what you use.

Fully managed platform

Availability, durability, & scalability across multiple regions on AWS, Google, & Azure that meets demanding data security and privacy standards.


Work your way

No matter how you build your apps, InfluxDB Cloud includes services (APIs, client libraries, integrations) that make development easy.

InfluxDB features

InfluxDB Cloud services

InfluxDB Cloud includes way more than you find in the open source – it is an elastic time series database as a service.

Elastic services

InfluxDB Cloud is built as a cloud-native, multi-tenant, elastic scale, serverless platform. Each service scales independently based on workload and usage requirements. This all happens behind the scenes from the user. Need more storage? It’s there — no need to procure more or use a bigger machine. Need more compute power to perform complex analytical functions? No problem — we elastically scale up to meet that demand with zero human intervention. The same is true for all the services you might need — compute, query, read, write, and store to name just a few.

Platform services

InfluxDB Cloud is run by the experts and creators of InfluxDB. Dedicated engineers do all the heavy lifting to ensure that the InfluxDB Cloud service is available when you need it. It is secure and hardened with all the latest security features and patches installed and configured. Optimized for elastic scalability, InfluxDB Cloud automatically rebalances clusters, handles sharding, and leverages built-in replication factors. InfluxDB Cloud does all the complexity of running a time series database for you, giving you the peace of mind to get your real work done.

Support services

Designed to optimize your Time to Awesome, the dedicated team at InfluxData suports InfluxDB Cloud. With flexible support pricing and options, you can choose from Slack and forum-based community support all the way up to having a dedicated customer success manager to help you deliver exceptional results to your organization.


InfluxDB Cloud was architected to run on any cloud – Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. Designed for ultimate flexibility to prevent lock-in, choose the cloud provider and location for your infrastructure. InfluxDB Cloud currently is available in multiple regions.


InfluxDB Cloud Durability Walkthrough

Works in your environment

With a powerful set of data collection tools, client libraries, and APIs you can get data from everywhere.


InfluxDB Cloud uses Telegraf to collect time series data from, and to send it to databases, applications, systems, and IoT sensors. Telegraf is a plugin-driven server agent with over 300 plugins. It is written in Go, compiles into a single binary with no external dependencies, and requires a very minimal memory footprint.

Client Libraries

Access InfluxDB Cloud via a set of powerful client libraries. Currently, there are client libraries for Arduino, C#, Go, Java, JavaScript, Kotlin, Node.js, PHP, Python, R, Ruby, Scala, and Swift. These client libraries are easily accessible in a new tab in the UI.


Programatic access to InfluxDB Cloud is available through a robust set of APIs. These APIs are common across InfluxDB Open Source and InfluxDB Cloud allowing you to write code once and run it locally against an open source version of the database or against the elastic database as a service.
