Commercial Success For InfluxDB
Fast forward to now, and the business is built around the paid clustered version. They now have two offerings - an on premises, site-installed version and a cloud-based service hosted on AWS. The cloud version allows you to pick a size, and they provision the new cluster for you, install the software, monitoring systems, and run them.
Introducing InfluxDB Iox
The commercial aspect of this new project is to run it as a cloud-based solution. The cloud based version requires extra software to coordinate and operate a fleet of servers. This software is closed source and will be on a paid licence.
