InfluxData Founder and CTO Paul Dix to Discuss Latest Product Releases around Application Monitoring and Store/Record Developer Tools for Prometheus and Kubernetes
SAN FRANCISCO — May 1, 2018 — InfluxData, the modern Open Source Platform built specifically for metrics, events and other time series data that empowers developers to build next-generation monitoring, analytics and IoT applications, today announced that Founder and CTO Paul Dix has been selected to present at the upcoming KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2018 conference being held in Copenhagen, Denmark, this week.
Mr. Dix will lead the session titled “Integrating Prometheus and InfluxDB” on May 4 from 11:55 am CEST – 12:30 pm CEST in the Auditorium 11+12 room.
In the session, attendees will learn methods for a long-term store of record for their Prometheus data. Mr. Dix will describe how InfluxDB can fill this role with recent additions adding support for Prometheus standards and protocols. This talk will show how InfluxDB supports the pull and Prometheus metrics format, and will examine Prometheus’ remote/read and write interfaces and how they can be used to integrate with InfluxDB. Attendees will discover how InfluxDB’s new open source query engine allows Prometheus users to perform federated queries against any number of Prometheus and InfluxDB servers.
InfluxData will unveil this new functionality this week at its Booth S-C42, demonstrating new functionality around Kubernetes, as well as providing an early view of the new functional query language IFQL.
