Aiven for InfluxDB® and Grafana® now available illustration

Today we're proud to announce two new Aiven services: InfluxDB and Grafana. Together they bring you next-generation data visualization in the cloud.

Trying Aiven is free, no credit card required

With US$10 in free credits at sign-up and billing by the hour, Aiven provides you with the fastest and easiest to set-up data visualization solution in the cloud. Go to to get started!

New services: InfluxDB and Grafana

Aiven for InfluxDB is a high-performance time series database allowing you to ingest hundreds of thousands of datapoints a second and perform search queries on them. Aiven for Grafana is a visualization solution which is especially powerful when combined with Aiven InfluxDB.

With a couple of clicks on our Web Console you can launch both Aiven for InfluxDB and Aiven for Grafana in a cloud and region of your choice: all Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, DigitalOcean and UpCloud regions are supported. Aiven automatically connects your Grafana and InfluxDB services allowing you to start graphing your data immediately without any configuration required.

Just as with our first service, Aiven for PostgreSQL, we'll take care of fault-tolerance and periodic backups for your InfluxDB and Grafana services. And it goes without saying that all your data is encrypted in storage and transit.
