InfluxData Simplifies IoT and DevOps Monitoring

InfluxData, provider of an open source platform built for metrics and events, has announced a common administrative UI and visualization experience across the InfluxEnterprise and open source platforms to support developers in building next-generation monitoring, analytics, and IoT applications faster and easier.

According to Evan Kaplan, CEO, InfluxData, traditional monitoring solutions are siloed and unable to handle the diversity and volume of metrics and events. A unified monitoring layer purpose-built for all metrics and events, from sensors to microservices, is necessary for identifying patterns, controlling complex systems, and turning insight into action, Kaplan noted.

The InfluxData platform is built on the open source projects - Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf, and Kapacitor, often referred to as the TICK stack.

Incorporated in the InfluxData platform, Chronograf 1.3.0 now improves time to value for developers using Telegraf for metrics and events collection through pre-built visualizations for monitoring and data exploration; offers easier administrative capabilities including database creation and user management for InfluxDB; simplifies creation of custom alerting providing anomaly detection, and action frameworks for faster business value leveraging capabilities of Kapacitor; and implements support for both open source TICK projects and InfluxEnterprise.
