InfluxData, an open source platform built for metrics, events, and time-series data meant for monitoring and analytics, announced a new Telegraf agent for Google Cloud IOT Core on the 10th of October, 2018.
This will enable Google Cloud users to get better insights and analytics from their IOT environments using the time series database solution.
This will, in turn, provide continuous insight, improve operational efficiency, and better optimize their business for real-time control and decision-making in the process.
Google Cloud IOT Core is a complete set of protocols designed to let you collect, process, analyse, and store data from the cloud.
InfluxData’s Telegraf is a plugin which allows you to collect and report metrics and data.
With the combination of the two, users will now be able to monitor the valuable tracking sensor data and use the data gained from previous sensors to predict upcoming circumstances and make better-informed decisions with regards to current ones.
The plugin will also allow users to have automated action and control without any human intervention.
Google Cloud IOT Core can help customers maximize ROI of their IOT applications by capturing, understanding and acting on data collected from IOT devices and sensors in real time.
InfluxData’s ability to integrate with Google Cloud IoT Core enables us to address the time series data collection and analysis needs of IoT customers, and we are pleased to be a new contributing member to the Google Cloud IoT ecosystem

The Return of Investments from IOT Data is directly tied to the quality of the data derived from IOT Devices which is available for real-time decision making.
It requires time-series data and InfluxData is one of the leading brands in that sector. InfluxData provides the data services layer to Google Cloud IOT Core that allows users to collect time series data for instrumenting, observing, learning and automating any system.
Since the inception of Telegraf, over 160 plugins have been developed, and none of them has been developed by InfluxData.
All of the plugins are developed by the community, showing the ease of development wherever a subject matter expert is concerned.
As a result, any updates to existing plugins or the introduction of new plugins are available to customers, including Google Cloud IOT Core customers, in real time to quickly gather custom metrics about their workloads.
Google Cloud IOT Core customers can be up and running in a few hours to easily collect and store their IOT data in a purpose-built time series database within the Google Cloud IOT ecosystem.
InfluxData delivers a modern IOT data platform built from the ground up to support organizations looking to best leverage the wealth of IOT data delivered from their devices and sensors to provide an advantage for their customers.
IOT data is unique in that sensors deliver time-stamped or time series data to measure change over time, the data is streamed relentlessly from sensors, and sensors capture and emit data in real time.
With InfluxData, companies always have a direct view into the state of each of their devices and sensors so changes can be made to keep services running efficiently.
Its InfluxDB database is the overwhelming leader among Time Series Database management systems, according to DB-Engines’ latest results.
