FULTON, Md., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Circonus, Inc., creators of the IRONdb time-series database and Circonus real-time monitoring and analytics platform are proud to announce the release of a new Grafana Datasource Plugin for IRONdb.
IRONdb is a highly performant, scalable, time-series database with high redundancy and multi-datacenter capabilities. Designed to maximize operator efficiency and avoid common maintenance overhead, no other open source or commercial product can compete with its ease of use, performance, and redundancy.
The Grafana Datasource plugin combines the benefits of IRONdb with the features of Grafana, and this combination provides a monitoring platform that is greater than the sum of its parts. Being the only TSDB that natively stores histogram data as a first class datatype, IRONdb allows Grafana's heatmap panel and histogram visualizations to effectively visualize and analyze high-volume data. In addition, IRONdb provides high-performance server-side analytics and a powerful statistical analytics engine.
An enterprise can host data on-premises or pull data into Grafana from IRONdb SaaS. Using IRONdb stems increasing expenditure outlays for Grafana metrics storage infrastructure while increasing availability and redundancy. Because IRONdb runs on less hardware, it reduces the operational complexity and cost of the storage tier of an existing Grafana monitoring architecture, and frees up operational resources. This allows a business to either reduce costs by eliminating infrastructure, or expand capacity to monitor more data across the organization. In fact, using IRONdb can reduce the metric storage infrastructure for Grafana by up to 50%.
IRONdb is fully compatible with other existing metrics stores, as a drop-in replacement, or running alongside Whisper, InfluxDB, OpenTSDB, Prometheus, and others. With the new Grafana Datasource Plugin, users can continue to use their preferred UI, such as Grafana, Circonus, or Graphite Web, but now with faster, more responsive tools.
