Thanos is a set of components that can be composed into a highly available metric system with unlimited storage capacity, which can be added seamlessly on top of existing Prometheus deployments.
Thanos is a CNCF Incubating project.
Thanos leverages the Prometheus 2.0 storage format to cost-efficiently store historical metric data in any object storage while retaining fast query latencies. Additionally, it provides a global query view across all Prometheus installations and can merge data from Prometheus HA pairs on the fly.
Concretely the aims of the project are:
Deployment with Sidecar:
Deployment with Receive:
The philosophy of Thanos and our community is borrowing much from UNIX philosophy and the golang programming language.
We also perform minor releases every 6 weeks.
During that, we build tarballs for major platforms and release docker images.
See release process docs for details.
