What is Thanos?

Thanos is a set of components that can be composed into a highly available metric system with unlimited storage capacity. It can be added seamlessly on top of existing Prometheus deployments and leverages the Prometheus 2.0 storage format to cost-efficiently store historical metric data in any object storage while retaining fast query latencies. Additionally, it provides a global query view across all Prometheus installations and can merge data from Prometheus HA pairs on the fly.
Thanos is a tool in the Monitoring Tools category of a tech stack.
Thanos is an open source tool with GitHub stars and GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Thanos's open source repository on GitHub
