Learn why InfluxDB

Learn why InfluxDB — trusted by hundreds of organizations in nearly every industry across a wide range of use cases — has become the preferred platform for centralized monitoring of metrics, events and key business indicators.

Why Metrics as a Service?

Metrics as a Service (MaaS) is a concept that combines centralization resource efficiency, overhead offload and maximum value extraction from the data collected organization-wide. All data converging to one platform, available in one pane, allows much richer visualization and analytics across multiple data sources and data types.

Key advantages of MaaS:

  • Removes silos’ inefficiencies
  • Reduce operational workload while providing agile response to multiple audiences with diverse monitoring requirements
  • Enable data enrichment, correlation and complex analytics for more insightful information
  • Supports real-time stream processing, alerting and anomaly detection
  • Removes barriers to adopting data-driven culture


What is the InfluxData Metrics as a Service with InfluxDB solution?

Metrics as a Service (MaaS) with InfluxDB gives you functionalities to sustain centralized growth, availability and durability of the data:

  • High availability clustering
  • Horizontal scalability
  • High ingest/query performance
  • Storage efficiency
  • Single pane for holistic visualization of key performance indicators.

Furthermore, InfluxDB provides extended functionalities and workflow automation for an easy-to-use, one-stop shop for metrics:

  • Real-time stream processing for effective alerting, optimizations at ingest as well as anomaly detection when integrated with Machine Learning frameworks
  • Powerful query and scripting engine that performs complex analytics over multiple data sources, enabling early detection of issues and fast root-cause diagnosis
  • Automation of data lifecycle management with retention policies, automated rollups, and eviction

“InfluxDB is a high-speed read and write database. So think of it. The data is being written in real-time, you can read in real-time, and when you’re reading it, you can apply your machine learning model. So, in real-time, you can forecast, and you can detect anomalies.”
