Database trends: The rise of the time-series database
The time-series database (TSDB) is designed to handle these endless streams, and itâ€™s one of the most notable current trends in database technology. While standard databases are designed to store data forever, time-series databases can be configured to give data elements a specific time to live. Time-series databases that optimize the collection and analysis of time-series data open up the opportunity to provide business models that adjust and avoid one-size-fits-all standardization. These connections will grow deeper, and in many cases the tools will effectively merge with the time-series database. In a sense, all databases are time-series databases because they maintain a log of the transactions that build up the table.
