Promscale is a unified metric and trace observability backend for Prometheus, Jaeger, and OpenTelemetry. It is built on PostgreSQL and TimescaleDB.

Promscale provides robust and 100% PromQL-compliant Prometheus remote storage. Promscale is also a certified Jaeger storage backend that is durable and scalable.

Unlike other observability backends, it has a simple and easy-to-manage architecture with just two components: the Promscale Connector and the Promscale database. The Promscale database consists of PostgreSQL with the TimescaleDB and Promscale extensions.
