The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has revolutionized the way industries operate, enabling businesses to collect and analyze data from their operations in real-time. However, managing and analyzing data from diverse sources can be a challenge. While sensors and systems may use the same transport protocols, the shape and type of data generated can vary from one device to another. A lack of uniform, clean data creates challenges and obstacles when it comes to getting timely insights.

To win the space race, aerospace and aviation companies must be fast. The end-to-end cycle of testing, visualizing test data, and making improvements demands swiftness, especially when a single launch yields billions of data points. It starts with real-time access to data. Real-time data analysis with nanosecond precision is crucial for monitoring environmental and habitat conditions when lives are at stake. Speeding up the iteration pipeline is essential but not sufficient. Cost efficiency matters too.

In the modern software development landscape, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines have become essential. They automate the process of integrating code changes, running tests, and deploying applications. The efficiency and reliability of these pipelines are critical to the overall success of a software project, and CI/CD pipeline monitoring plays a vital role in maintaining and improving these attributes.

Maintenance and repairs for aerospace operations in orbit present a considerable challenge. It’s not easy to dispatch a technician to fix components on a satellite. That’s why it becomes increasingly critical to plan for as many scenarios as possible before launching and deploying these kinds of devices. To understand what’s happening with orbiting devices, companies need data.

InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated provides fully-managed InfluxDB v3 clusters that power enterprise-grade workloads on a scalable infrastructure dedicated to your workload and your workload alone. As a fully-managed service, InfluxData takes the infrastructure hassle off your plate by monitoring and scaling your cluster when necessary. Until recently, cluster health-related metrics were only available to internal InfluxData support staff.

Prometheus is the go-to observability tool for countless developers and organizations, and for good reason. The popular open source tool doesn’t require any up-front costs or result in vendor lock-in. Prometheus’ short on-ramp makes the technology well-suited for organizations looking to jump-start their cloud monitoring journey.

InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated is a fully-managed InfluxDB offering that lets you run enterprise-grade workloads on cloud infrastructure dedicated to your workload and your workload alone. A common request from those running enterprise-grade workloads on InfluxDB is the ability to use single sign-on (“SSO”) to authorize access to InfluxDB. SSO is now available as a paid option for InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated clusters.

To the unfamiliar, building with open source tools may seem like the kind of chaos that leads to Boaty McBoatface-like decisions. Andrew Lamb, staff engineer at InfluxData and PMC for the Apache DataFusion project, provides insight from a developer and a PMC perspective about what it's like to build with, and manage a major open source project. InfluxData recently rebuilt its core database using Apache projects: Flight, DataFusion, Arrow, and Parquet, dubbed the FDAP stack.

It's your data. You should be able to do whatever you want with it. However, vendor lock-in can trap your data in a single solution, making it extremely difficult to switch to something that better meets your needs. When your data goes in, but doesn't come out—that's a data roach motel. Open source technologies, and solutions built with open source tools, enable organizations to take control of their data, giving them the freedom to put it into and take it out of whatever databases or solutions they see fit.

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.
