How to Install InfluxDB on IBM Cloud

Contents

Introduction

Provision Kubernetes Cluster

Note: Please be careful when choosing free clusters, as your pods could be stuck at pending state due to insufficient computing and memory resources, if you face such kind of issue please increase your resources by creating them choosing the standard plan.

This option allows you to create resources in either single or multi availability zones. Multi availability zone provides you the option to create the resources in more than one availability zone so in case of catastrophe, it could sustain the disaster and continue to work.
