InfluxDB Cloud backed by InfluxDB IOx

All InfluxDB Cloud organizations created on or after January 31, 2023 are backed by the new InfluxDB IOx storage engine. Check the right column of your InfluxDB Cloud organization homepage to see which InfluxDB storage engine you’re using.

If powered by IOx, this is the correct documentation.

If powered by TSM, see the TSM-based InfluxDB Cloud documentation.
