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 the latest
release of InfluxEnterprise, which delivers LDAP integration, new
advanced analytics and self-healing capabilities in the leading time
series database platform.

The increasing complexity of systems is driving the need for
observability since even a small improvement in system behavior can have
a significant impact on the bottom line. Time series data, collected and
stored with InfluxData's Time Series database platform, is integral to
observability and is becoming mission critical for organizations.
Today's enhancements to InfluxEnterprise make it easier for
administrators to keep this mission critical data available and secure
by checking and verifying every requested action – including creating
databases, storing data and running queries – against a user's stored
authorizations and role.

Updates to InfluxEnterprise include:

  • Integration with LDAP: InfluxEnterprise now supports
    authenticating users against LDAP, making it easier for site
    administrators to securely manage critical time series data and users.
    This also speeds adoption of the InfluxData platform by improving the
    user experience through single sign-on (SSO) and meeting security
    compliance requirements of internal operations for protecting private
  • Advanced Analytical Functions: InfluxData's new release adds
    advanced analytical functions for mathematical and advanced financial
    modeling, enabling use of time series data to create complex financial
    models. These functions are important for data analysis to help teams
    understand system behavior to predict outages in early stages.
  • Advanced Data Replication: InfluxData's advanced data
    replication with self-healing automatically detects data
    inconsistencies, resulting for example from hardware failure or user
    error, and resolves them so data across all nodes is consistent. This
    gives the team peace of mind knowing that the data they rely so
    heavily on to keep their systems running is always available.

"Time series platforms are being adopted faster than any other database
technology, due to their unique abilities to monitor and analyze IoT,
DevOps, Cloud, and Containers; and provide analytics for real-time
decision making," said Mark Herring, InfluxData CMO. "As time series
platforms continue to gain broader adoption within the enterprise, it's
imperative that these platforms fit well with the rest of the IT
