Timescale is Postgres made Powerful.

More than 3.2M active Timescale databases power apps across IoT, crypto, dev tools, and finance—all built on PostgreSQL. We use PostgreSQL for everything; we built our cloud so you can too.


For traditional database workloads, Timescale provides dynamically scalable compute and more memory even at the base. Plus you only pay for what you store.

Time series & analytics

For time series and other demanding workloads that ingest and query high volumes of data, Timescale queries up to 350x faster, ingests 44% faster, and saves 95% storage over RDS.

Vector / AI

For production AI applications that need fast search with high recall on millions of vector embeddings, Timescale offers a vector engine.

Infinitely scalable

  • Dynamically scale compute and storage independently, only paying for what you use
  • Scale query capacity with read replicas and connection pools
  • Store infinite data by with transparent data tiering
  • Easily store 100s of TBs across data tiers, and still query as standard SQL tables

Cost-effective and flexibly priced

  • Save money with high compression rates—customers see up to 95% compression
  • Only pay for what you store with usage-based storage
  • Custom storage optimizations for time-series data and analytics
  • Automated data retention policies and continuous aggregations
  • Simplified billing, without hidden data transfer, cost-per-query, cost-per-data-scanned or backup charges

Worry free

  • Everything you love about PostgreSQL—excellent dev experience and a rich ecosystem of database extensions, tools, and connectors
  • Continuous incremental backup/recovery, point-in-time forking/branching, zero-downtime upgrades, and multi-AZ high availability
  • No more running out of storage space, managing disk allocations, or getting stuck in the wrong CPU/memory configuration
  • Top-notch consultative support to unblock any hurdles—at no extra cost

“The best feature of TimescaleDB: it's all PostgreSQL, always has been. All your tools, all the existing libraries, and your code already work with it. I’m using TimescaleDB because it’s the same as PostgreSQL but magically faster.“

Florian Herrengt, co-founder, Nocodelytics
