Yesterday, InfluxData released a new product called InfluxDB IOx written in Rust. That solution covers a few different cases compared to VictoriaMetrics but still can be used to store metrics. And as you know, we love to do benchmarks with other metrics storages (influx, scylla, timescale).

We’re always curious about new solutions and approaches in the world of time series, and IOx caught our eye. We were impressed with the product design and introduction. And we wanted to compare to our product, so we did the simplest billy benchmark (see more details here) on a single instance with the following specs: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5–8265U CPU @ 1.60GHz …
