Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

Db2 is not a solution that I recommend. We have a lot of experience and we are not satisfied with the product or the support that we received. Because of the way our environment works, serving branches, it becomes a challenge to satisfy the customers or users.

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

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • You can size dashDB to your current needs and expand its capability later on as the needed.
  • I like the way dashDB allow for connecting to the cloud that my network engineer to set things up quickly.
  • IBM dashDB's ability to store and provide fast access to data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it a real winner for me.

InfluxDB

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

Cons

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • We have been facing some challenges with Db2 when scaling up the operations in terms of availability. It becomes a single point of failure and it pollutes the whole system, leaving us challenges in serving the traffic. This is the reason that we are considering migrating to Oracle.
  • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes per second and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.
  • We have dealt with technical support on several occasions. Whenever we run into issues, the specialist team is involved and the resolution cycle is stretched. We have to rely on make-shift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.

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

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB stacks up well against both on-premise (SQL Server and DB2), but it was a tough choice to go with over AzureDB. Ultimately, the deep discount by IBM led us to go with dashDB with the understanding that we could back out of the technology at a later date.

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

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • We have dealt with technical support on several occasions. Whenever we run into issues, the specialist team is involved and the resolution cycle is stretched. We have to rely on makeshift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.
  • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.

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.
