VictoriaMetrics can be used as long-term storage for Prometheus or for vmagent. See [these docs](#prometheus-setup) for details.
VictoriaMetrics implements MetricsQL, https://github.com/VictoriaMetrics/VictoriaMetrics/wiki/MetricsQL query language, which is inspired by PromQL.
Supports global query view. Multiple Prometheus instances may write data into VictoriaMetrics. Later this data may be used in a single query.
High performance and good scalability for both inserts and selects.
High data compression, so up to 70x more data points may be crammed into limited storage comparing to TimescaleDB.
Optimized for storage with high-latency IO and low IOPS (HDD and network storage in AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, etc).
A single-node VictoriaMetrics may substitute moderately sized clusters built with competing solutions such as Thanos, M3DB, Cortex, InfluxDB or TimescaleDB.
to S3 or GCS with [vmbackup] / [vmrestore].
Storage is protected from corruption on unclean shutdown (i.e. OOM, hardware reset or
kill -9) thanks to the storage architecture.
Supports metrics' scraping, ingestion and backfilling via the following protocols:
Supports metrics' relabeling. See [these docs](#relabeling) for details.
Ideally works with big amounts of time series data from Kubernetes, IoT sensors, connected cars, industrial telemetry, financial data and various Enterprise workloads.
Has open source cluster version (https://github.com/VictoriaMetrics/VictoriaMetrics/tree/cluster).
