Long term storage
Durably store data for longer than the lifetime of any single machine, and use this data for long term capacity planning.
Blazin’ fast PromQL
Cortex makes your PromQL queries blazin' fast through aggressive parallelization and caching.
A global view of data
Cortex gives you a global view of Prometheus time series data that includes data in long-term storage, greatly expanding the usefulness of PromQL for analytical purposes.
Cortex runs across multiple machines in a cluster, exceeding the throughput and storage of a single machine. This enables you to send the metrics from multiple Prometheus servers to a single Cortex cluster.
