Storage in 2.0

Storage in 2.0

Orchestration systems such as Kubernetes are rapidly gaining traction and unlock features of highly dynamic environments, such as frequent rolling updates and auto-scaling, for everyone. This causes the number of series to blow up, putting new strains on Prometheus’ one-file-per-series data layout. This talk will be laying out the problems with the 1.0 storage and how the new storage engine, built from the ground up, solves them while also producing a sharp increase in performance. Storage 2.0 also has additional features, like granular, time-ranged deletes and live backups whose implementation would be discussed.
