Pros and Cons

  • Scalability - InfluxDB scales so well and even lets you create a database cluster without needing a database administrator.
  • Data Reduction - InfluxDB's primary use case is to allow the data to be input at any interval or speed regardless of the volume of data. The way this is later queried is by reducing the data based on the input data.
  • Quick start - Unlike other monolithic time series database it can easiliy startup with just a few minutes of reading their documentation
  • Cloud Native - This database engine is made to operate in Docker & cloud first!
  • Small, but growing community - This database engine's community is much smaller than alternatives. This can make finding a DBA or support less easy, but not impossible.
  • Documentation could be improved - The docs for getting started don't effectively lead first-time users to understand how the underlying systems are designed.
  • Performance Analysis - There seems to be a lack of tools to give context to slow queries or other performance issues
  • Out-of-the-box security - The out of the box security is designed to operate in an internal network and is limited.

Pros and Cons

  • Storing time-series data
  • Providing time-series data over an HTTPS API
  • Accepting new data inputs through the same HTTPS API
  • Providing existing data sets in a very fast and efficient manner
  • The open source version does not have ACLs, which is crucial for enterprise customers
  • The open source version has no high availability or clustering option, even the enterprise edition is limited in this way
  • The open source and the enterprise versions both have no read load-balancing systems (sharding is possible, though)
  • Backup and recovery can only be performed for all data sets, not for subsets
