InfluxDB 2.0

Overall Satisfaction with InfluxDB

InfluxDB is being used by some department of our company as a time-series database. We use that to monitor the infrastructure we have on cloud and InfluxDB is also hosted on cloud server. Once there is an event triggered, the event will be stored in InfluxDB for future reference use.


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


  • Query return can sometime out of order.
  • Some operations can be hard to execute, like delete function.
  • Have to be aware of timely order to have a good performance.
  • 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.
We have looked around to find different options we had when we first started to move to cloud. At that time, the options we had is Google Cloud BigTable and InfluxDB. But quickly we realized that InfluxDB is the database specialized in time series database and performs better than other options we have.

Do you think InfluxDB delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with InfluxDB's feature set?


Did InfluxDB live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of InfluxDB go as expected?


Would you buy InfluxDB again?


One part of our event-driven architecture on cloud is to implement real-time event logging. We have looked into different products on the market and found InfluxDB being the perfect balance between cost and efficiency. We had a small size proof of concept and decided that was what we wanted to go with. And so far it is working great with our other components on cloud.
