InfluxData and Sensu Offer Joint Solution to Handle Time Series Data in Event Monitoring Pipeline

InfluxDB Enterprise Edition and InfluxCloud Now Integrated as Preferred Time Series Data Store in Sensu Core for Application and Infrastructure Event Monitoring

SAN FRANCISCO--()--InfluxData, the modern Open Source Platform built specifically for metrics, events and other time series data, today announced its strategic partnership with Sensu. The two companies have collaborated on a joint solution, adding the ability to handle large time series data workloads to Sensu’s market-leading monitoring software for critical applications and enterprise infrastructure.

Sensu’s products – now in use by large organizations in the finance and technology sectors – are deployed on customers’ own infrastructure and allow IT, development and operations teams to easily monitor and collect metrics from throughout the infrastructure stack. Then, customers can analyze that data through special dashboards to remediate IT-performance issues.

With the addition of InfluxData’s platform, the Sensu Core product line can now handle large workloads of time series data, streaming from any infrastructure source that sends data to Sensu. Developers using Sensu Core can now collect, process, analyze, and store even larger data workloads using any of InfluxData’s products, including InfluxDB open source, InfluxDB Enterprise Edition, and InfluxCloud, InfluxData’s managed database-as-a-service offering.

“As more companies use software to deliver value to customers, the availability of that software is increasingly important,” said Caleb Hailey, CEO of Sensu. “Monitoring has become a core competency for IT organizations, and our goal is to deliver a product that scales with the needs of these organizations, helping them eliminate downtime and revenue loss as a result.”

“We are excited to partner with Sensu and bring our time series data platform to developers running multi-cloud deployments,” said Brian Mullen, VP of Business Development at InfluxData. “Multi-cloud distribution is a reality; and with this comes exponential growth in data – specifically time series data. With Sensu we bring together two purpose-built tools to optimize the developer experience for monitoring multi-cloud deployments.”

The companies have entered into a partnership agreement, in which Sensu will include InfluxData products as their preferred time series platform in the Sensu Core and Sensu Core Enterprise products, respectively, sold to customers around the world. For more information, see
