TimescaleDB is currently available as an Ubuntu 18.04 Amazon EBS-backed AMI. AMIs are distributed by region, and our AMI is currently available in US and EU regions. Note that this image is built to use an EBS attached volume rather than the default disk that comes with EC2 instances.
See below for the image id corresponding to each region for the most recent TimescaleDB version:
|us-east-1 (North Virginia)||ami-0313b4bfed0594a99|
|us-west-1 (North California)||ami-0e989ea8765644217|
To launch the AMI, go to the
AMIs section of your AWS EC2 Dashboard run the following steps:
Public Imagesunder the dropdown menu.
You can also use the image id to build an instance using Cloudformation, Terraform, the AWS CLI, or any other AWS deployment tool that supports building from public AMIs.

initializing a database with the TimescaleDB extension. See our setup section for details.
Depending on your user/permission needs, you will also need to set up a postgres superuser for your
database by following these postgres instructions. Another possibility is using the operating
ubuntu user and modifying the pg_hba.
timescaledb-tune, which you can use to tune postgresql.conf based on the underlying system resources of your instance. See our configuration section for details.
