How cluster creation & differences impact performance

In this this technical paper, we’ll explore the aspects of scaling clusters of InfluxDB with our closed-source InfluxEnterprise product, primarily through the lens of write performance.

This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of InfluxEnterprise for their use case, in addition to helping establish some rough guidelines for what those users should expect in terms of write performance in a real-world environment.

Migrating from InfluxDB 0.8 and Up to 1.0

In this paper we’ll review the best practices for migrating from InfluxDB 0.8 or 0.9 to InfluxDB 1.0. Although there’s a wealth of complexity around a migration depending on your current architecture and the one to which you want to migrate, this paper aims to cover the most common strategies for a successful migration.

Why Time-Series Matters for Metrics, Real-Time and IoT/Sensor Data

In this this technical paper, InfluxData CTO – Paul Dix will walk you through what time-series is (and isn’t), what makes it different than 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/sensor data use cases.

Benchmarking InfluxDB vs Elasticsearch for Time-Series

In this this technical paper, we’ll compare the performance and features of InfluxDB and Elasticsearch for common time-series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of these technologies for their use case.
