InfluxData Continues Leadership Position in Fastest Growing Time Series Database Category According to DB-Engines' Latest Results


InfluxData Maintains Leadership by Increasing Popularity 57 Percent –
Nearly 3 Times More than Closest Competitor

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 its
continued position as the leader among Time
Series Database management systems
, according to DB-Engines'
latest results
published this month.

According to DB-Engines' January results, InfluxDB continues its
overwhelming lead, outpacing the competition with its popularity
increasing 57 percent over the past 12 months, and 14 percent quarter
over quarter. InfluxDB is InfluxData's Time Series Database used as a
data store for any use case involving large amounts of timestamped data
– including DevOps monitoring, application metrics, IoT sensor data, and
real-time analytics. The DB-Engines results included rankings of the
leading vendors in the Time Series Database category, with InfluxDB's
user popularity ranking nearly three times more than the nearest

DB-Engines is an initiative to collect and present information on
database management systems (DBMS). DB-Engines also rated the overall Time
Series Database Management System category
, which continues to grow
in popularity with a 59 percent year-over-year increase, stronger than
the previous year's growth rate of 42 percent.

"As DB-Engines shows, InfluxData continues its strong leadership
position as the most popular solution in the time series database
market," said Mark Herring, InfluxData CMO. "This continued growth in
the rankings offers proof that users are turning to time series
databases to collect and store data that shows metrics and events for
IoT sensors, DevOps monitoring, and real time analytics. Time series
databases are more efficient and work well for time series workloads –
other databases require significant overhead to handle time series data.
InfluxData is uniquely positioned as being purpose-built, and proving to
be faster and more flexible and efficient in monitoring and reporting on
time series workloads."
