InfluxData Partners with AWS to Offer Time Series Analytics to Developers

InfluxData, creator of the leading time series platform InfluxDB, is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver Amazon Timestream for InfluxDB, allowing users to quickly build and run time series applications on managed infrastructure with AWS’s scalability, reliability, and security without the overhead of self-management.

Making InfluxDB a preferred AWS time series database signifies InfluxData’s category leadership and the high-growth market for time series databases to power real-time analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) training models, according to the companies. By working with InfluxData, AWS developers now have a simple way to manage and derive value from time series data within the AWS Management Console.

“InfluxData is deeply committed to open source—both building an open, permissively licensed product and making it accessible to as many developers as possible through simple and logical entry points and wide availability,” said Evan Kaplan, CEO of InfluxData. “The cloud is now the modern way to build, run, and distribute open source solutions. Working with AWS gives us the broadest reach to developers from every industry, market, and region so they can get started using time series and InfluxDB quickly and easily.”

With Amazon Timestream for InfluxDB, customers can start using a single-instance open source version of InfluxDB immediately by creating a managed instance automatically configured for optimal performance and availability. There are no upfront costs, licenses, or commitments required, and customers only pay for the resources they use.

The initial Amazon Timestream for InfluxDB offering is based on InfluxDB OSS 2.x, making it ideal for open source users with workloads that only require a single-node instance. Through the console, customers can opt into additional performance and scalability capabilities. This includes high availability with multiple AWS Availability Zones (multi-AZ) for synchronous data replication and backup across AZs in as little as 60 seconds with zero data loss. It also includes encryption-in-transit and at-rest with the AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) and a configurable network using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

“We’re delighted to offer a managed service for InfluxDB. With Amazon Timestream for InfluxDB, now customers with stringent latency requirements for their time-series applications can benefit from open-source APIs and the ease-of-use that our customers enjoy with managed database services on AWS, reduced operational burden, and enhanced reliability for their InfluxDB workloads,” said Jeff Carter, vice president of databases and migration services at AWS. “Our work with InfluxData brings one of the most popular open-source time-series databases as a managed service for AWS customers.”

According to the companies, in the future, Amazon Timestream for InfluxDB will expand to offer additional InfluxDB versions, including the new InfluxDB 3.0 product line via InfluxDB Community, currently in development. AWS and InfluxData will also collaborate to offer AWS customers additional modules specific to the 3.0 product offering. This includes a Scale Module for distributed querying from multiple instances and a Security Module for fine-grained permissions, single sign-on, and audit logging.
