TimescaleDB is an extension for PostgreSQL that enables time-series workloads, increasing ingest, query, storage and analytics performance.

Best practice is to run TimescaleDB in a Timescale Service, but if you want to self-host you can run TimescaleDB yourself.

Want to skip these steps?

Deploy a Timescale service in the cloud. We tune your database for performance and handle scalability, high availability, backups and management so you can relax.
