To measure everything that matters, you need to collect and store everything that matters. Storage can be expensive and slow. You need compression.
You need TimescaleDB.
TimescaleDB uses several time-series compression algorithms to help you mitigate storage needs. TimescaleDB compression gives you:
✅ 94 - 97% lossless compression rates
✅ Lower costs
✅ Better query performance
Store everything that matters so that you can measure everything that matters.

Follow our step-by-step guide to get up and running, from setting up compression for your environment to setting automated policies and getting the optimal compression ratio for your data.
Learn how we built compression to combine all of the benefits of PostgreSQL with additional query performance, see early benchmarks, and more.
Get a breakdown of various compression algorithms, including how they work, when and how you’d use them, how we’ve built them into TimescaleDB, and ways to get started.
