Time series databases

This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

A time series database (TSDB) is a system that is optimized for handling time series data. It allows users to perform CRUD operations on various time series organized as database objects. It also provides the ability to perform statistical calculations on the series as a whole. Although TSDBs are not entirely a new technology we are seeing a renewed interest in the these databases primarily in the realm of IoT applications. This is being facilitated by many open source and commercial platforms (such as OpenTSDB , InfluxDB , Druid , BlueFloodDB etc.) that have mushroomed recently. Its also worth mentioning that some of these systems use other distributed databases such Cassandra and HBase as their underlying storage engine.
