InfluxDB as Code

Over the last 10 years, software development has evolved at an extraordinary pace. As we dismantled our bare metal for virtual machines, broke apart monoliths for microservices, and set sail with containers and service meshes; we've had to lovingly embrace Infrastructure as Code (IaC) as a means to increase speed and efficiency, reduce risk, secure processes, and provide consistent and reproducible environments.

With InfluxDB being an integral part of your applications, services, infrastructure, and observability pipelines; it's only fair that we provide you with the same IaC primitives you're already accustomed to. Right?

In this session, we'll introduce you to pkger; InfluxDB's command line tool to apply declarative manifests to configure your InfluxDB instance.

From zero to awesome, in 88 seconds.
