Two days earlier, InfluxData launched InfluxDB Cloud 2.0, its new serverless time-series cloud database platform. The new product includes a free rate-limited tier, transparent usage-based pricing and advanced analytic capabilities that allow customers to convert data into actionable information. It is also the first specialized time-series database cloud service which is serverless.

The design direction of the 2.0 platform is to make it more visual and, in some cases, codeless. The company’s goal is to change the APIs and query language to unify the entire stack behind a single, common set of APIs.

“Time series data is becoming increasingly important across a range of applications, notably operational and IoT analytics. Cloud and web developers today expect convenient access to specialist data engines,” said James Governor, analyst, and co-founder at RedMonk. “InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 is designed for developer experience, to make time-series data easier to work with.”

Features of InfluxDB Cloud 2.0

  • It collects, stores, queries, processes and visualizes raw, high-precision, time-stamped data.
  • InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 can outperform non-specialized time series solutions by up to 100x.
  • It provides customers real-time observability into their systems and supports a wide range of customer applications.
  • InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 also features Flux, a new data scripting, and query language. Flux can extract more complex and valuable insights from data, better detect anomalies and enable real-time action with alerts and notifications.
  • The new user interface includes native client library collections and pre-built dashboards and scripts for common monitoring projects, such as Docker, Kubernetes, Nginx, Redis and more.

InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 will also be available as an integrated solution on the Google Cloud Platform later this year. You can get started with InfluxDB Cloud here.
