InfluxData community! In January, we released InfluxDB 2.0 alpha with draft documentation. With each incremental alpha release, we’ve iteratively updated the docs. Most recently, we published content for InfluxDB Cloud 2.0. Since the initial 2.0 alpha release, the 2.0 documentation source code has been kept in a private GitHub repository.

There are many ways to connect your sensors to the network in the IoT. For short-range connections, there is Bluetooth LE, or Zigbee, or 802.15.4, or ZWave. For longer distances (though still fairly short) there’s always WiFi. But when you need longer distances, sometimes very long distances, there’s LoRaWAN. It’s a sub-gigahertz set of frequencies that are available for small bits of data.

Everything related to how IT services are delivered and consumed is undergoing tremendous change. Monolithic architectures are being replaced by microservices-driven apps and the cloud- based infrastructure is being tied together and instrumented by DevOps processes.

Companies are committed to delivering on higher levels of customer satisfaction for their online services. Unfortunately, many organizations trying to support these initiatives take an interrupt-driven approach where they scramble to fix things when they break. However, to manage to these high levels of SLAs, you should take a structured approach in order to reduce the amount of unscheduled downtime by proactively monitoring and managing your systems.

This paper reviews how an IoT Data platform fits in with any IoT Architecture to manage the data requirements of every IoT implementation. It is based on the learnings from existing IoT practitioners that have adopted an IoT Data platform using InfluxData.

In this technical paper, we’ll compare the performance and features of InfluxDB 1.4.2 vs. Elasticsearch 5.6.3 for common time series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of these technologies for their use case.

In this technical paper, we’ll explore the aspects of scaling clusters of the InfluxEnterprise product, primarily through the lens of write performance of InfluxDB Clusters. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of InfluxEnterprise for their use case, in addition to helping establish some rough guidelines for what those users should expect in terms of write performance in a real-world environment.

This talk will go into the details of migrating from TICK to InfluxDB 2.0. We’ll touch on data migration, what to consider when migrating dashboards from InfluxQL to Flux, and considerations for moving from Kapacitor and TICKscript to Tasks and Flux.

Paul will talk about the long-term vision for Flux the language as well as InfluxDB 2.0, Telegraf 2.0 and beyond. He’ll talk about why we’ve decided to create a language, how that plays into polyglot persistence & purpose-built time series databases, and how it enables more complex analytics and processing workloads to drive insights from data not just in InfluxDB, but everywhere.

This talk will show how to use Tasks, Flux, dashboards and monitoring and alerting in InfluxDB 2.0 to create an external service or website monitor. It’ll tie all the work we’ve been doing for the last two years together in a simple example for everyone to use as a template for their own custom monitoring applications built on top of the InfluxDB 2.0 platform.
