ADD SCALABLE DATA STORAGE & HIGH AVAILABILITY TO PROMETHEUS WITH IRONDB

Proactively maintain a highly perfomant standard of data quality that allows for seasonality.

INTEGRATE SEAMLESSLY

Keep your current UI and monitoring systems with a simple add-on install of IRONdb. Remote read and write capabilities allow IRONdb to provide metric storage for Prometheus installations, providing a seamless integration between Prometheus and IRONdb. No other data storage solution can operate at the scale of cardinality that IRONdb can, with one IRONdb cluster supporting many individual Prometheus instances.

WHY ADD IRONDB TO YOUR PROMETHEUS INSTALLATION?

LONG TERM STORAGE & HISTORICAL ANALYSIS

Move from “pretty good” storage to 7 years worth of TSDB data storage. Use historical data to analyze seasonality, predictive maintenence, and make better maket decisions.

REPLICATION

Don’t lose data during routine maintenance or outages by keeping multiple copies of your data in a cluster of IRONdb nodes.

DATA ROBUSTNESS & COMPRESSION

Compress, store, and retrieve data quickly. IRONdb adds ZFS to your stack allowing for enhanced data integrity, protection from data corruption, and increased capacity.
