Vertica and Grafana – A New Partnership

Posted August 3, 2021 by Amrita Akshay, Information Developer

You asked and we heard you big time!!!

We are very excited to announce our official partnership with Grafana  and the launch of the signed Vertica Grafana Plugin.

Grafana is an open-source analytics tool that enables you to visualize and query data in real-time. Its informative dashboards allow you to view data from different sources. It supports plugins such as Apps, Datasources, and Panels with Enterprise and Community Editions.

Based on customer request, we upgraded the Vertica Grafana  Plugin with the latest Grafana Plugin SDK and additional features. During our plugin development, Grafana released version 8, so we made the necessary adjustments to ensure it works in both Grafana versions 7 and 8. The plugin is validated by Grafana.

The new plugin integrates the latest React framework. This plugin is enhanced to include one of the most requested features by our users, Query Builder. You can now use the query builder to assist in constructing your queries or use the original raw SQL editor. We also have additional enhancements such as load balancing etc.

You can either use the plugin as-is, modify the source code based on your requirements, or contribute to our plugin.

Have fun exploring Grafana with the new query builder and other features with Vertica. Check out Vertica Grafana Plugin on the Grafana website for more information about this integration.
