I am currently evaluating moving to either InfluxDB in the cloud or deploying OSS on AWS. I have been using InfluxDB on a private network for a while but find that having a publicly accessible instance will better suit my needs.
I tend to use AWS AMI Linux 2 instances for my various AWS machines and assumed that if I move my Influx deployment to AWS I would put it on an AMI Linux 2 instance as opposed to Ubuntu.
If that’s a bad idea I’d like to know.
And if AMI Linux 2 will work well, is there a preferred repository for the package or should I just grab a current Fedora/CentOS rpm?
