Meet Timescale: #FunFact

Do you know that Timescale rebranded itself from database company with a cloud product to a cloud company with a database product in 2023? The Timescale cofounders Ajay Kulkarni and Mike Freedman shared their thought process behind the decision in their company announcement:

"We first launched Timescale over six years ago. In those years, we had a front-row seat to a major shift in developer needs to the cloud. Back then, cloud was an afterthought, just one way to deploy database software. But today, we see the dominance of cloud-first architectures, where developers often choose not between database software products but between database cloud products. By continuing to embrace the cloud, we have an opportunity to reinvent the database Working with thousands of companies, we have realized this: the cloud is a tectonic shift in how software infrastructure is distributed and consumed, and we are still in the early stages of this change. By continuing to embrace the cloud, we have an opportunity to reinvent the database."
