Introducing InfluxDB IOx, a Federated In-Memory Columnar Store Backed by Object Storage

This talk introduces InfluxDB IOx, the future open source core of the InfluxDB time series database. Written in Rust with Apache Arrow, InfluxDB IOx is an in-memory columnar store that uses Parquet files in object storage for persistence. It includes built-in functionality for defining replication and flexible cluster topologies with total operator control over partitioning and replication scheduling. This talk will introduce the architecture and concepts behind InfluxDB IOx. We’ll talk about the technology choices, Arrow and Parquet and the API of the project.
