InfluxData Further Supports the Industrial Data and Internet of Things Space with New Updates

InfluxData, creator of the time series platform InfluxDB, is releasing a variety of features for the Industrial Data and Internet of Things (IoT) space.

“Time series data has become critical to success in any industrial setting,” said Paul Dix, founder and chief technology officer, InfluxData. “Specialized IoT platforms powered by time series data provide a real-time digital view into past, current and future operational performance. InfluxDB was purpose-built to manage the variety, volume and velocity of IoT data, and we will continue to deliver features that improve the experience for developers working with data at this scale.”

InfluxData is releasing key features to expedite IoT and Industrial IoT application building. New capabilities deliver a more intuitive experience for developers and engineers working with time series data at the edge and deliver better data processing for use cases spanning predictive maintenance, performance monitoring, energy optimization, operational technology, smart offices, smart homes, and more, according to the vendor.

New features include:

  • Run analytics at the edge with persistent and replicated data: Enables analytics at the edge, while also providing replication of data for centralized collection, visibility and additional analytic processing. Users can easily replicate data into InfluxDB Cloud from an InfluxDB instance at the edge.
  • Broadcast new data to thousands of devices: New feature adds the ability to simultaneously distribute processed data with custom payloads to thousands of devices all at once from a single Flux script.
  • Intelligently deploy software at the edge with configurable packages: Users can now break down the stack into smaller base components, installing only what they need at the often-resource-constrained edge.
  • Contextualize IoT data across multiple sources: InfluxData has added MQTT data ingest to Telegraf, InfluxDB’s distributed collection agent. The new Telegraf MQTT input allows users to have more context over the IoT data they are ingesting from multiple sources.

Additional industry-leading IIoT platforms including Bosch ctrlX, Siemens WinCC OA, Akenza IoT and Cogent DataHub have also partnered with InfluxData to use InfluxDB as a persistence provider and data historians.
