The latest release of InfluxData, an open source platform for metrics, events, and other time series data, adds LDAP integration, new advanced analytics, and self-healing capabilities in the time series database platform. According to the company, time series data, collected and stored with InfluxData’s Time Series database platform is integral to observability and is becoming mission critical for organizations. Enhancements to InfluxEnterprise make it easier for administrators to keep this mission critical data available and secure by checking and verifying every requested action. This includes creating databases, storing data and running queries – against a user’s stored authorizations and role.
Updates to InfluxEnterprise
- Integration with LDAP: InfluxEnterprise now supports authenticating users against the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), making it easier for site administrators to securely manage critical time series data and users.
- Advanced Analytical Functions: the release adds advanced analytical functions for mathematical and advanced financial modeling, enabling use of time series data to create complex financial models.
- Advanced Data Replication: InfluxData’s advanced data replication with self-healing automatically detects data inconsistencies, resulting, for example, from hardware failure or user error, and resolves them so data across all nodes is consistent.
