ADD SCALABLE DATA STORAGE & HIGH AVAILABILITY TO PROMETHEUS WITH IRONDB
Proactively maintain your own reliable, extensible time series data storage solution.
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, enabling 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?
Don’t lose data during routine maintenance or outages by keeping multiple copies of your data in a cluster of IRONdb nodes.
