InfluxDB 3 Clustered is a robust and scalable self-hosted time series database, designed to handle large-scale deployments. It offers the capability to scale across hundreds or even thousands of servers, allowing organizations to efficiently manage and store massive amounts of data with unlimited cardinality. This enables enterprises to tackle complex and high-velocity data streams, ensuring seamless data processing and analysis. InfluxDB 3 Clustered is deployed in a Kubernetes cluster, providing flexibility for organizations to choose their preferred infrastructure, including bare metal clusters or popular cloud providers.

We meet once a day as a team for a quick catch up. We encourage pairing as needed to get work done.
