Today, AWS announces the general availability of Amazon Timestream for InfluxDB, a new time-series database engine. Timestream for InfluxDB makes it easy for application developers and DevOps teams to run fully managed InfluxDB databases on AWS for real-time time-series applications using open-source APIs. 

In minutes, you can create an InfluxDB database that handles demanding time-series workloads. With a few simple API calls, you can set up, migrate, operate, and scale an InfluxDB database on AWS with automated software patching, backups, and recovery. To migrate to Timestream for InfluxDB from a self-managed InfluxDB instance, you can restore a backup from an existing database and retarget your traffic to your new point. Timestream for InfluxDB offers the full feature set available in the InfluxDB 2.7 release of the open-source version, and adds deployment options with Multi-AZ high availability and enhanced durability. For high availability, Timestream for InfluxDB allows you to automatically create a primary database instance and synchronously replicate the data to an instance in a different Availability Zone. When it detects a failure, Amazon Timestream automatically fails over to a standby instance without manual intervention.

Timestream for InfluxDB is now available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (Stockholm). 

You can create a Timestream for InfluxDB instance from the AWS Management console, AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), or AWS CloudFormation (AWS CFN). To learn more about Timestream for InfluxDB, visit the product, pricing, and documentation pages.
