Migrate data to InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated

Migrate data to InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated powered by InfluxDB IOx from other InfluxDB instances powered by TSM including InfluxDB OSS 1.x, 2.x, InfluxDB Enterprise, and InfluxDB Cloud (TSM).

Should you migrate?

There are important things to consider with migrating to InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated. The following questions will help guide your decision to migrate.

Are you currently limited by series cardinality?

Yes, you should migrate. Series cardinality is a major limiting factor with the InfluxDB TSM storage engine. The more unique series in your data, the less performant your database. The IOx storage engine supports near limitless series cardinality and is, without question, the better solution for high series cardinality workloads.

Do you want to use SQL to query your data?

Yes, you should migrate. InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated lets you query your time series data with SQL. For more information about querying your data with SQL, see:

Do you want better InfluxQL performance?

Yes, you should migrate. One of the primary goals when designing the InfluxDB IOx storage engine was to enable performant implementations of both SQL and InfluxQL. When compared to querying InfluxDB powered by TSM (InfluxDB OSS 1.x, 2.x, and Enterprise), InfluxQL queries are more performant when querying InfluxDB powered by InfluxDB IOx.

Do you depend on a specific cloud provider or region?

You should maybe migrate. InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated instances are available from the following providers:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
    • US East (Virginia)
    • EU Frankfurt

If your deployment requires other cloud providers or regions, you may need to wait until the IOx storage engine is available in a region that meets your requirements. We are currently working to make InfluxDB IOx available on more providers and in more regions around the world.

Are you reliant on Flux queries and Flux tasks?

You should not migrate. InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated doesn’t support Flux.

Introducing InfluxDB Clustered

A highly available InfluxDB 3.0 cluster on your own infrastructure.

InfluxDB Clustered is a highly available InfluxDB 3.0 cluster built for high write and query workloads on your own infrastructure.

InfluxDB Clustered is currently in limited availability and is only available to a limited group of InfluxData customers. If interested in being part of the limited access group, please contact the InfluxData Sales team.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
