InfluxDB vs TempoDB: What are the differences?

What is 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..

What is TempoDB? Store & analyze time series data from sensors, smart meters, servers & more. TempoDB is the first database service for time series data (ex: measuring thermostat temperatures, network latencies, heart rates). Time series is a unique Big Data problem that breaks traditional databases (MySQL, MongoDB, etc). Today, businesses spend months and millions attempting to build solutions to manage all this data and yet still fail to store as much as they need or analyze it effectively. TempoDB is a purpose-built database service that enables businesses to store and analyze massive streams of time series data, so they can learn from the past, understand the present, and predict the future.

InfluxDB and TempoDB are primarily classified as "Databases" and "SQL Database as a Service" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by InfluxDB are:

  • Time-Centric Functions
  • Scalable Metrics
  • Events

On the other hand, TempoDB provides the following key features:

  • Flexible, powerful API
  • Store as much high resolution (1 ms max) time series data as you need for long range historical analysis
  • We guarantee data availability and protect against loss by replicating each live datapoint 3x and using geographically distributed backup environments

InfluxDB is an open source tool with 16.7K GitHub stars and 2.39K GitHub forks. Here's a link to InfluxDB's open source repository on GitHub.

      TimescaleDB
      TimescaleDB: An open-source database built for analyzing time-series data with the power and convenience of SQL — on premise, at the edge, or in the cloud.
      Redis
      Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
      MongoDB
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
      Prometheus
      Prometheus is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true.
      Elasticsearch
      Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack).

      Influx doesn't currently natively support horizontal distribution. Hard to recommend it until they implement that.

      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.
