    Amazon Athena

    If you are looking to take a lot of the traditional "database administration" work off someone's plate, going with Amazon Athena certainly has "no code" options to optimize lots of database tasks. I would say this option is less appropriate if you have other Microsoft things at play, such as Power BI.

    InfluxDB

    InfluxDB is very good at storing monitoring metrics (e.g. performance data). InfluxDB is not the right choice if you need to store other data types (like plain text, data relations etc.).

    Pros

    Amazon Athena

    • The most obvious, is you can use SQL programming language, which a lot of people understand.
    • You can scale up to meeting higher processing times.
    • The data return speed (query speed) is great.
    Scott Kennedy | TrustRadius Reviewer

    InfluxDB

    • Perfect handling telemetry data.
    • Low latency, near real time.
    • SQL-like language makes it easier to query.

    Cons

    Amazon Athena

    • Every dialect of SQL has some missing functions. I wish there was automated GROUP BY options here.
    • There are connection problems back to Power BI occasionally.
    • If you don't watch certain queries, it's possible that it takes a long time to run and charges you a lot of money.

    InfluxDB is a near perfect product for time series database engines. The relatively small list of cons are heavily outweighed by it's ability to just work and be a very flexible and powerful database engine. The community and support provided by the corporation are the only areas I have little experience.

    We have worked with the InfluxDB support team a few times so far and it has been positive. Issues submitted are worked on promptly and we have good feedback.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon Athena

    Amazon Athena, a product from Amazon, competes with offerings from Google and Microsoft. Overall, I think your database choice depends on some of the other applications you are running at your company. For example, if you are using Microsoft Power BI for reporting needs, you might want to consider going the Azure route.
    Scott Kennedy | TrustRadius Reviewer

    InfluxDB

    To be honest, I didn't look at alternatives since InfluxDB performs very well if you can oversee the lack of security and HA features. But for all challenges, there is an easy solution which brings you forward (e.g. read load balancing can be achieved by using a common HTTPS load balancer).

    Return on Investment

    Amazon Athena

    • The query speeds help us make more decisions in a day (speed).
    • If you need more horsepower for specific times in the day this option helps scale.
    • The security of your environment is well protected too.
    Scott Kennedy | TrustRadius Reviewer

    InfluxDB

    • Provided us a time series DB.
    • With the SQL-like language, it is very easy to learn.
    • Empowered us to keep track of our events.
