How can I store Binary data in influxDB

I want to store binary data in influx db…
Influx document says that only Float, Integer, Boolean, String & Timestamp can be saved in influxDB.
Somewhere, I read that influx supports binary data but that is limited to 1KB only.

Is there any other way to store binary data in influxDB??

Hey @deepanshujaiswar,

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to store binary data in InfluxDB; the types you mentioned are the only ones we support. You might be able to come up with a workaround by encoding the data and storing it in a integer or a string, but you’d still be limited in the amount of data you could store.

What were you hoping to accomplish by storing the data in Influx? Depending on your use case, you might be able to store the binary itself in S3 or a similar object store, and then store a link to that object in Influx.
