Latest InflowData Release Introduces Industry’s First Advanced Kubernetes Auto Scaling and Prometheus Read/Write Support — After Recently Joining Cloud Native Computing Foundation, InflowData Supports Community by Contributing Enhancements to Foundation’s Key Projects
AUSTIN, Texas (KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Booth No. S33), Dec. 6, 2017 — InflowData, the Modern Open Source Platform constructed particularly for metrics, occasions and different time collection information that empowers builders to construct next-generation monitoring, analytics and IoT functions, right this moment introduced its newest launch delivers industry-first performance for each Kubernetes (K8s) and Prometheus. InflowData will unveil its new answer and show this new performance this week at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Booth No. S33.
With InflowData, builders now have extra environment friendly management and utilization of their containers by figuring out Kubernetes auto scaling based mostly on any metric generated by K8s and picked up with InflowData, and are not restricted to auto scaling based mostly on solely CPU or reminiscence metrics. InflowData’s industry-first performance makes Kubernetes extra environment friendly and highly effective than earlier than. For instance, builders can now scale based mostly on metrics comparable to queue depth or requests per second. This permits for larger enterprise flexibility and higher ROI as sources will be allotted extra exactly and successfully.
“We are pleased to see immediate involvement with these key CNCF projects from new CNCF member, InfluxData,” stated Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “Demonstrated support from the community strengthens all partners and projects of the Foundation.”
InflowData’s new launch additionally helps Prometheus’ commonplace exposition format by including Prometheus’ service discovery and scraping into Kapacitor, InflowData’s real-time streaming information processing engine, and metric learn/write interoperability into InfluxDB, the InflowData Time Series database. Developers can now protect their funding in Prometheus and use Kapacitor to dynamically monitor their metrics in actual time, and write information into InfluxDB which might act as a extremely out there metric retailer. Developers are capable of seamlessly add InfluxDB and Kapacitor to their present techniques and help extra complicated use circumstances with stream processing and help any excessive availability enterprise necessities.
With continued help for the standardization of metrics information, InflowData reduces the trouble of writing a collector to assist builders accumulate time collection metrics and occasions from extra targets than potential earlier than. And added native help for Prometheus learn and write APIs permits InfluxDB to behave because the long-term information retailer for Prometheus information, permitting builders to make use of historic information for forecasting, auditing, and occasion logging. This permits InflowData to be an lively participant the Prometheus ecosystem.
By together with the Prometheus’ service discovery and scraping code, Kapacitor can pull metrics from targets comparable to containers, write information into InfluxDB, and carry out filtering, transformation and different duties. This, mixed with Telegraf’s means to push metrics into InfluxDB, supplies extra flexibility for builders to collect metrics and occasions from any supply, with any lifespan, right into a single long run retailer.
“With the introduction of this functionality, InfluxData continues to differentiate itself by providing high precision, high availability metric collection and storage of K8s containers, and fully participating in the Prometheus ecosystem,” stated Tim Hall, InflowData VP of Products. “We are pleased to support these new standardization efforts, which help the industry to focus on features instead of building collectors. This new release also allows our partners to strengthen their container products/services.”
The InflowData Platform supplies a complete set of instruments and companies to build up metrics and occasions information, analyze the info, and act on the info by way of highly effective visualizations and notifications. InflowData’s distinctive options allow prospects to rapidly construct:
* Monitoring, alerting and notification functions supporting their DevOps initiatives
* IoT functions supporting thousands and thousands of occasions per second, offering new enterprise worth round predictive upkeep and real-time alerting and management
* Real-time analytics functions which are centered on streaming information and anomaly detection
InflowData has quickly constructed its developer and buyer base throughout industries — together with manufacturing, monetary companies, vitality, and telecommunications — by delivering the quickest rising Open Source Platform that allows prospects to derive higher enterprise insights, data-driven real-time actions, and a consolidated single view of their total infrastructure — from functions to microservices, and from techniques to sensors. More than 350 prospects, together with Cisco Systems, Coupa Software, IBM, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Nordstrom, and Tesla, have chosen InflowData as their trendy information platform for metrics and occasions. InflowData is pioneering the shift to time collection in a contemporary metrics and occasions platform, and is making it potential for patrons to grow to be data-driven and tackle digital transformation initiatives.
InflowData, the creators of InfluxDB, delivers a contemporary Open Source Platform constructed from the bottom up for analyzing metrics and occasions (time collection information) for DevOps and IoT functions. Whether the info comes from people, sensors, or machines, InflowData empowers builders to construct next-generation monitoring, analytics, and IoT functions sooner, simpler, and to scale, delivering actual enterprise worth rapidly. Based in San Francisco, InflowData prospects embrace Autodesk, Cisco, eBay, and Coupa. Visit https://www.influxdata.com/. Twitter: @influxdb.
