ClustrixDB vs InfluxDB: What are the differences?
ClustrixDB: Clustered SQL database built for e-commerce. ClustrixDB is a scale-out SQL database built from the ground up with a distributed shared nothing architecture, automatic data redistribution (so you never need to shard), with built in fault tolerance, all accessible by a simple SQL interface and support for business critical MySQL features – replication, triggers, stored routines, etc; InfluxDB: An open-source distributed time series database with no external dependencies. InfluxDB is a scalable datastore for metrics, events, and real-time analytics. It has a built-in HTTP API so you don't have to write any server side code to get up and running InfluxDB is designed to be scalable, simple to install and manage, and fast to get data in and out..
ClustrixDB and InfluxDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by ClustrixDB are:
- Is built from the ground up with a shared-nothing architecture. There is no MySQL code in ClustrixDB
- Is built to scale transactions while maintaning ACID
- Scales to add capacity by simply adding commodity servers to the cluster
On the other hand, InfluxDB provides the following key features:
- Time-Centric Functions
- Scalable Metrics
InfluxDB is an open source tool with 16.7K GitHub stars and 2.38K GitHub forks. Here's a link to InfluxDB's open source repository on GitHub.

We use InfluxDB as a store for our data that gets fed into Grafana. It's ideal for this as it's a lightweight storage engine that can be modified on the fly by scripts without having to log into the server itself and manage tables. The HTTP API also makes it ideal for integrating with frontend services.
To track time-series of course, utilizing few retention rules and continuous queries to keep time-series data fast and maintanable
InfluxDB ingests information from various sources (mostly Telegraf instances) into one place for monitoring purposes.
