TimescaleDB |


Report Author(s): Philip Howard


TimescaleDB is built on top of PostgreSQL as a database intended to specifically support the requirements of time-series data.

While Timescale can be used to collect metrics and then present these in a dashboard for monitoring environments, and it can be deployed as a storage engine working with third-party tools, the company’s main focus is on time-series analytics in industrial, financial and IoT environments. Because the product leverages not just PostgreSQL but also its extensions, it can combine time-series capabilities with geospatial data using the PostGIS extension.
