Influx DB Installation on dual boot machine

Influx DB Installation on dual boot machine

For one of our client we need to follow an architecture where Thingworx will be using Influx DB as a persistence provider. 

As per PTC document, Influx DB is not supported on windows machine.

 

For internal testing purpose can we use dual boot machine and  install Influx db on unix side for storing time series data and rest will be stored on windows postgre sql as Thingworx app is already installed on windows machine. Just wondering if this architrcture is possible in practical. Any thoughts would be greatful.

Sid

Hello Sid,

 

You won't be able to run Windows and Linux on a dual-boot machine simultaneously. What you can do for testing purposes is setup a Linux VM with InfluxDB, and run it using Hyper-V on that Windows machine.

I am confused by your question. Yes, the database for ThingWorx and the Influx DB for Time series data can be on different servers. 

Why do you describe using  dual boot machine for this environment?
