How to Enable TimescaleDB on an Existing PostgreSQL Database

I currently have a PostgreSQL replication environment and want to enable Timescale. Do I have to create a whole new environment for this and then import it into ClusterControl?

No. Just go to the Nodes tab for your existing PG environment and click on the Actions button far right, and you will see the option “Enable TimescaleDB.”

Can ClusterControl deploy and import both PostgreSQL and Timescale or just one and activate the other?

The choice is yours, but yes, you can deploy (create & import) both technologies independently and isolated from the other. And as many as you’d like.

I don’t know anything about PostgreSQL and have to provide a fully managed Timescale replicated environment. How long would it take me to get it deployed?

Once you have at least two servers with just the operating system installed, it would take around 10 minutes (depending on the server resources) to follow the wizard that installs the software and configures each server with the replication setup finished accordingly.
