About this Episode

In this week’s The New Stack Makers podcast interview in advance of AWS re:Invent, The New Stack founder and publisher Alex Williams caught up with InfluxData vice president of product Tim Hall to discuss why time-series databases are gaining in popularity with developers and how they differ from other databases.

Whether you’re talking about handling the data streaming out of Internet of Things (IoT) devices or the data used to monitor complex virtualized infrastructure and distributed applications, time-series databases are increasingly being seen as the tool of choice. As Hall explains, time-series data is simply any data that comes with a timestamp, and InfluxData is building a platform specifically to handle that type of data.
