EdgeDB vs TimescaleDB: What are the differences?
What is EdgeDB? The Next Generation Object-Relational Database. An object-relational database that stores and describes the data as strongly typed objects and relationships between them.
What is TimescaleDB? Scalable time-series database optimized for fast ingest and complex queries. Purpose-built as a PostgreSQL extension. TimescaleDB is the only open-source time-series database that natively supports full-SQL at scale, combining the power, reliability, and ease-of-use of a relational database with the scalability typically seen in NoSQL databases.
EdgeDB and TimescaleDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by EdgeDB are:
- Strict, strongly typed schema
- Powerful and clean query language
- Ability to easily work with complex hierarchical data
On the other hand, TimescaleDB provides the following key features:

- Full ANSI SQL
- JOINs (e.g., across PostgreSQL tables)
