What is InfluxDB Enterprise?
InfluxDB Enterprise is the solution for running the InfluxDB platform on your own infrastructure. Priced by node, this subscription turns any InfluxDB instance into a production-ready cluster.
Why use InfluxDB Enterprise?
InfluxDB Enterprise is a hardened version of the open source core TICK stack that includes additional closed source features designed for production workloads. InfluxDB Enterprise is run by you on your infrastructure — on-premise, private cloud, public cloud, or edge. InfluxDB Enterprise is sold through an annual subscription based on the number of nodes needed to meet your business needs.
Key features unique to InfluxDB Enterprise include:
InfluxDB Enterprise includes a clustered version of the InfluxDB database. Clustering enables data to be sharded across nodes and provides the technical infrastructure to support service availability where having guaranteed access to and reacting to your metrics and events is required. This is key to support uptime SLAs and situations where data loss is unacceptable.
Clustering can also be used to shard data across multiple servers, allowing reads and queries to run through different servers to increase scalability of the entire system. The number of data nodes can easily be expanded to support new workloads.
Fine-grained access control
Role-based access control restricts or allows specific users, or groups of users, from performing certain tasks. This provides increased security: the desired level of security can be maintained by role and makes it easier for administrators to grant and remove access
Enterprise LDAP and OAuth support
InfluxDB Enterprise supports LDAP and OAuth, an open standard for token-based authentication and authorization. This capability allows you to hook into any enterprise OAuth provider, like Google or Okta, for seamless access control.
Incremental backup and restore capabilities allow you to backup only the data that has changed since the last backup. This reduces the amount of time needed for daily backups, the amount of disk storage, and bandwidth usage when backing up over a network. You can backup at any time without interrupting any processes. And full backups are only triggered after stopping the database instance and manually backing it up.
An InfluxDB Enterprise subscription connects you to a skilled team of software professionals who have deep expertise in running all the components of the software, including support for the complete underlying open source core platform and covering the entire lifecycle — from development and proof-of-concept to QA/test to production and deployment.
InfluxDB Enterprise fits with any infrastructure strategy. It’s completely written in Go and distributed as a set of binary files. This allows for the software to be installed and deployed in almost any infrastructure, whether on-premise, in a private cloud (e.g., AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, IBM), a public cloud or virtual private cloud.
InfluxDB Enterprise is available as an annual subscription based on the number of nodes needed to meet your business requirements. The number of nodes is dependent on your unique requirements, such as response time, data precision (or frequency of data collection), retention policies, replication factors, and ingest vs. query volumes. When deploying on AWS, Google Cloud or Azure, you can use your existing marketplace credits or commitments to streamline procurement and consolidate your InfluxDB and infrastructure costs into a single bill. These cloud deployments offer both hourly pricing and annual subscription options.
