At Timescale, we help the PostgreSQL community improve their time-series and analytics workloads. We offer a cloud service, also named Timescale, as well as TimescaleDB, a PostgreSQL extension which provides some of the database features of Timescale. Any TimescaleDB database using the Timescale License contains features such as:

  • Hypertables
  • Continuous aggregates
  • Compression
  • And more...

On top of that, Timescale, the cloud service, provides added convenience such as worry-free backups and easy replicas, and exclusive features such as data tiering to object storage.
