A new feature bearing release for InfluxDB Enterprise is now available along with a maintenance release for InfluxDB OSS.
This the first official release of InfluxDB Enterprise on the 1.6 line.
Key highlights for the Enterprise release include:
- The Anti-Entropy (AE) service now provides the ability to repair shards and eliminate inconsistencies, in addition to detecting missing shards.
- LDAP is now supported as a backing store for user permissions.
- Additional TLS configuration options are also available allowing for a more precise configuration related to TLS version and specification of allowed ciphers.
- Back-pressure features are available to help prevent clusters from being overwhelmed with writes and hinted-handoff.
For community members, InfluxDB 1.6.2 can be downloaded here.
For our InfluxDB Enterprise customers, log in to the InfluxDB Enterprise portal and download the binaries from there.
