Timestream also automates rollups, retention, tiering, and compression of data, so you can manage your data at the lowest possible cost. Timestream is serverless, so there are no servers to manage. It manages time-consuming tasks, such as server provisioning, software patching, setup, configuration, and data retention and tiering, freeing you to focus on building your applications.
