Azure Databases is suitable in situations where users require a cloud space, which holds or takes secure data and makes accessibility easy. More so, Azure Databases supports data migration, which is a professional process of data transfer. The analytical progress from Azure Databases is connected to AI power and has automated reporting.

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.).

InfluxData
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.

InfluxData
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).
