Which Time-Series Database is Better: TimescaleDB vs InfluxDB

In the new time-series database world, TimescaleDB and InfluxDB are two popular options with fundamentally different architectures. One is based off a relational database, PostgreSQL, the other build as a NoSQL engine. In this blog, we’ll give you a short description of those two, and how they stack against each other.

An Overview of Streaming Replication for TimescaleDB

TimescaleDB uses a stream of write-ahead log (WAL) records to keep the standby databases synchronized. In this blog, we’ll review some concepts related to Streaming Replication and how ClusterControl can help us configure it in an easy way.

Scaling Your Time-Series Database - How to Simply Scale TimescaleDB

How do you scale TimescaleDB? How do you convert a single TimescaleDB instance to cluster with no downtime? How does the application know which database node to access? This blog post provides an overview of how to use ClusterControl to scale your time-series data with minimal effort.

How to Achieve Automatic Failover for TimescaleDB

Failover is the process of moving to a healthy standby component, during a failure or maintenance event. The quicker it can be done, the faster you can be back online. If you’re looking at minimizing downtime and meet your SLAs through an automated approach for TimescaleDB, then this blog is for you.

Performance Monitoring for TimescaleDB

Doing a performance monitoring in TimescaleDB is always a challenging task, especially for a very huge time-series data. ClusterControl offers a way to help a DBA or a developer to make things feasible and productive with the aid of the different features integrated within ClusterControl. Check out this blog as we showcases what are these and how you can leverage ClusterControl to monitor your TimescaleDB cluster.

Backup Management Tips for TimescaleDB

Managing backup environments can be complex, and there are a number of options to consider - full, differential, incremental, point in time recovery, automatic restores for backup verification, uploading to remote systems or cloud, and so on. So how can we backup TimescaleDB? In this blog, we’ll see how ClusterControl can help us implement our backup management strategy for TimescaleDB.

How to Easily Deploy TimescaleDB

TimescaleDB is based on PostgreSQL, and therefore, supports streaming replication as the primary method of replication. However, PostgreSQL does not come with automatic failover. This can be a problem in a high availability production environment, as manual failover implies prolonged downtime.

The good news is that failover in TimescaleDB can be completely automated in ClusterControl 1.7.2. This blog shows us how to deploy such a setup.

Advanced Database Monitoring & Management for TimescaleDB

Included in the 1.7.2 release of ClusterControl we are proud to announce an expansion of the databases we support to include TimescaleDB, a revolutionary new time-series that leverages the stability, maturity and power of PostgreSQL.

An Introduction to TimescaleDB

Time-series data is becoming more and more present, as we capture and analyze data at a faster rate. This increases the demand for complex queries and scalable database solutions. This blog provides a high-level overview of the new database system “TimescaleDB”, and a quick hands-on to get you going.

An Introduction to Time Series Databases

Time-series databases have emerged as a best-in-class approach for storing and analyzing huge amounts of data generated by users and IoT devices.

But what are time-series databases? Why have they become so important in the database landscape? In this blog post, we try to shed some light on the subject.
