InfluxData, creator of the time series database, is bringing its InfluxDB Cloud to Google Cloud. With this partnership, InfluxDB Cloud expands the reach of its time series platform to developers and businesses, with unified billing, support and integration with other Google Cloud services, such as BigTable, PubSub and Stackdriver.
InfluxDB Cloud on Google Cloud is a serverless, purpose-built time series database-as-a-service with advanced analytics that provide real-time observability into IoT and DevOps workloads. Modern application development requires specialized tools to drive faster, more agile innovation, and general-purpose databases — both relational and non-relational — can’t handle the scale of these workloads in a cost-effective manner. InfluxDB Cloud empowers users to derive new insights from their data, and with usage-based pricing, ensures customers never have to worry about added costs of overprovisioning or risk their application being unavailable when they need it.
The strategic collaboration, originally announced in April 2019, is part of a major Google Cloud initiative to make the most powerful open source technologies more accessible to its customer base. InfluxDB Cloud on Google Cloud delivers the leading time series platform to developers and businesses, with unified billing, support and integration with other Google Cloud services, such as BigTable, PubSub and Stackdriver.
InfluxDB Cloud leverages Flux, a new data scripting and query language that uses less code to extract more complex and valuable insights from data, better detect anomalies and enable real-time action with alerts and notifications.
