InfluxData Enhances Cloud Service with Stronger Visualization and Control

InfluxData has updated InfluxCloud, its managed and hosted version of the InfluxData open source time series DB platform for metrics and events.

InfluxData is focused on delivering rapid time to value for developers through building monitoring and control applications, said Tim Hall, vice president of products, InfluxData.

With the inclusion of Chronograf and Kapacitor into InfluxCloud, developers can experience more of the entire platform without having to setup and manage any infrastructure. This allows developers an easy onboarding experience and the ability to quickly incorporate advanced features like alerting and anomaly detection into their applications. The addition also “set the stage” for future capabilities such as co-monitoring, and portable backups, he added.

InfluxCloud version 1.3 includes an enhanced visualization experience via Chronograf, the visualization and administrative user interface for the InfluxData platform. Additional updates include support for role-based access to restrict or allow users, or groups of users, from performing certain tasks. The new release now also enables the visual definition of anomaly detection and alert rules. Powered by the incorporation of Chronograf for the visual elements and Kapacitor for the execution of the defined rules, these new additions allow users to gain more value from the InfluxData platform. In addition, while every subscription comes with a pre-defined storage allocation, customers can now add more storage as they need it. The usage-based storage add-ons also include automated backups which provides peace of mind knowing that your data is always safe and protected.
