To serve TimescaleDB deployments in Azure, GCP, and certain regions in AWS, we've partnered with the vendor Aiven to offer Managed Service for TimescaleDB. This is a managed database platform through which you'll be able to deploy TimescaleDB instances with ease, automating operational tasks like scaling, resizing, configuring high availability, and much more.

Timescale Cloud or Managed Service for TimescaleDB?

If your workload lives in the AWS major regions, we recommend using Timescale Cloud. This platform is built and exclusively operated by Timescale, designed to offer maximum cost-effectiveness and performance for time-series data. If you need Azure, GCP, or a specific AWS region not available in Timescale Cloud, Managed Service for TimescaleDB is the best choice for you.

Some important terms:

  • Account: Your Managed Service for TimescaleDB account. You can register for an account on the Managed Service for TimescaleDB signup page.
  • Project: An empty project is created for you automatically when you sign up. Projects help you organize your services and billing settings. You can also use projects to manage user access to your services.
  • Service: A service is an instance that corresponds to a cloud service provider tier. You can access all your services from the Services tab within your projects.
  • Database: Databases are created within a service. You can view and create a database within a service by selecting one of your services, and then navigating to the Databases tab.
  • Service plans: A service plan defines the configuration and level of database management that is performed for a given TimescaleDB deployment.
