InfluxDB 2 for arm32v7 release date?

:wave:t2: Hey InfluxData community!

I’ve used the influxdb 2.0 container a bit, and am hoping to use influxdb 2.0 on some ARM architectures (specifically a raspberry pi for now). Are there plans to build influxdb 2.0 for ARM?

I really enjoy the ease-of-use that the influxdb 2.0 container brings, it would be great to see that for ARM architectures.

Cheers,
Heath

Welcome @heath!
I’m not sure…@mhall119 do you know the timeline?

@heath we won’t be releasing an arm32v7 build / any other 32-bit builds of 2.x (you can see some information about our reasoning in this blog post). The good news is that we’re already building & releasing arm64v8 builds, including in Docker! If you pull influxdb:2.0 from an arm64 system it should do the right thing.

Newer raspberry pi’s have 64-bit hardware but ship with a 32-bit OS, so you might need to install a different OS before you can get started. Beta images of 64-bit Raspberry Pi OS are available for download here. You can also install 64-bit Ubuntu or another Linux distribution on the rpi.
