I'm not sure I will have time to join the call. So hopefully, you
understand that I prefer email (also because I wont be able to
contribute to the project, so maybe joining the call would be overkill).
Could you list the alternatives? If not using Gnocchi, what other
backend would you use? As an operator I need a timeseries which is:
- free software
- HA
- able to scale
- packaged or packagable in my distro

I don't know any time series db (apart from Gnocchi) that check all the
bullets above. Do you?

Gosh, reading that you'd be using bluejeans, then definitively, I will
not be able to join the call... :/
