Prometheus is a popular open source software for storing and analyzing metrics data. Many IT systems, including Docker, expose systems monitoring metrics to Prometheus for short-term storage and time series dashboarding. Prometheus is a single-server datastore, which makes it easy to setup, but also limits the amount of data it can process to that one machine.

In order to support Prometheus long-term storage of time series data, Prometheus supports external storage solutions. The CrateDB Prometheus Adapter seamlessly connects those same IT systems to CrateDB via the Prometheus remote read/write request interface. This gives users a fault-tolerant way to scale their IT metrics data to hold months, or even years of time series data and analyze it using SQL.
