Extending InfluxDB with Serverless Functions

Data ingestion and data analysis are the yin and yang of a time series platform. There are many resources to help you ingest data. Typical ingestions are agent-based, imports via CSVs, using client libraries, or via third-party technologies. Once your time series data arrives, analysis completes the circle and often leads to additional data collection, and so on and so forth.

Giraffe Visualization Library and InfluxDB

Giraffe is the open source React-based visualization library that’s used to implement InfluxDB’s v2 UI. It employs clever algorithms to handle the challenge of visualizing the incredibly high volume of data that InfluxDB can ingest and query. We’ve just published documentation describing how developers can take advantage of this library and I’ve tried to create a companion tutorial to further illustrate the power of this library.

How to Run a Time Series Database on Azure

Today we’re pleased to announce the general availability of InfluxDB Enterprise on Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace. We’ll dive into all of these below, but first, let’s take a step back in case you’re not familiar with time series databases. If you’re looking for a time series database, here are three things to look for.
