InfluxData Opens InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 to Public Beta

InfluxData, creator of time series database InfluxDB, today announced the public beta of InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 - the most significant evolution of the platform since the project started in 2013. With feedback from open source users and customers, InfluxData strengthened and streamlined the entire InfluxDB platform to improve the overall experience for developers and companies looking to handle and harvest deep insights from their time series datasets. InfluxData is inviting adventurous developers to join the beta and provide feedback that will help shape the future of InfluxDB Cloud.

"Understanding how data changes over time is critical to creating actionable insights that provide greater business value," said Paul Dix, co-founder and CTO of InfluxData. "This makes time series the best abstraction for understanding data, which is the motivation behind our purpose-built platform. We hope the developer community will join us on this journey and join the InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 beta program. "

Major new features in InfluxDB Cloud 2.0, include:

  • Rate-limited FREE tier: Designed for getting started and the hobbyist, it is even faster to get started than downloading the open source product.
  • Deeper insights with new Flux language support: Flux is a powerful new scripting and query language - the first functional language built specifically for time series data. Now it is possible to do complex analytics and math across measurements.
  • Single, unified API: Everything in InfluxDB (ingest, query, storage, and visualization) is now accessible via a unified API, enabling seamless movement between open source and cloud.
  • Integrated visualization and dashboarding: The pioneering work of the Chronograf project is now part of InfluxDB; enabling enhanced onboarding and user experience without having to rely on additional installs.
  • Usage-based pricing: The new pricing model offers more flexibility and ensures that customers are only paying for what they need; it will automatically adjust for projects based on data needs.

InfluxData has more than 500 customers and over 200,000 servers running InfluxDB that span three primary use cases: DevOps monitoring, real-time analytics, and IoT monitoring. Any organization that has servers, VMs, containers, applications, sensors, users or events to track can benefit from using InfluxDB.
