Using InfluxDB for Time Series Data?

If you have large data workloads, maybe it’s time for you to switch to CrateDB, the next-gen time-series database technology!

In recent months, numerous companies have reached out to CrateDB, expressing their decision to transition away from InfluxDB. When asked why, their responses were strikingly similar:

  • "I'm tired of rewriting my application and dashboards with every major version of InfluxDB."
  • "We feel there's a lack of clarity in InfluxDB's vision."
  • "With InfluxDB's complete code rebuild, I'm now worried about encountering numerous bugs and support issues."

It's clear that a growing community is dissatisfied with InfluxDB.
