The Influx databases by InfluxData are powerful BigData / NoSQL databases for time series data . Through new non-relational database concepts, these databases are able to store, reload and provide large amounts of data with time reference very quickly and efficiently.
With its plug-ins, the OPC router is able to connect to a wide variety of systems in the industrial infrastructure and thus also access their data. With the InfluxDB Plug-in, it is now possible to transfer this data directly to Influx database. Data can then easily be made available to BigData and analytics applications.
The InfluxDB Plug-in allows connections to the following databases:
- InfluxDB 1.7
- InfluxDB 2
- InfluxDB 3
- InfluxDB Cloud
The connection of the data sources with InfluxDB is done as usual in the graphical configuration via drag & drop.
