Why Time Series Matters for Metrics, Real-Time and Sensor Data
Time series data has historically been associated with applications in finance. However, as developers and businesses move to instrument more of their servers, applications, network infrastructure and the physical world, time series is becoming the de facto standard for how to think about storing, retrieving and mining this data for real-time and historical insight.
In this technical paper, InfluxData CTO, Paul Dix, will walk you through what time series is (and isn’t), what makes it different from stream processing, full-text search and other solutions.
He’ll also work through why time series database engines are the superior choice for the monitoring, metrics, real-time analytics and Internet of Things (IoT)/sensor data use cases.
