InfluxData is a VC-backed company with offices in San Francisco and Austin, and a sales office in London that covers Europe. It is the software company behind InfluxDB, the leading, open source time series database targeted at “metrics and events”. Although the company was only founded in April 2013, it has already made a big impact, with more than 600 customers using its products over 350,000 database instances. These customers include a variety of big names such as Cisco, Tesla, Siemens, PayPal, and IBM. ThingWorx is a notable partner in the Internet of Things (IoT) space. The company is based in San Francisco and is backed by venture capital.

The product is available both on premises and in the cloud, with InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 representing a major recent release, including a shift to usage-based pricing. The database is available on AWS and Google Cloud Platform. The core functionality for each InfluxData product is open source. However, a variety of advanced features are only available via the closed source, proprietary offerings provided by InfluxData. For example, clustering and high availability are popular features that are only available via a commercial offering. There is a rate-limited free version of the software available as a Platform as a Service.
