Columnar (analytics) tables for Postgres.

Relational database
Our review

What we like

Extension for Postgres to add columnar table types for analytics workloads. Means you can use existing Postgres clients and queries. Automatic vectorization for aggregate queries. Can copy tables between row and columnar. Built-in cron-like scheduler for regular tasks e.g. analytics queries. Open source. Great, original website theme.

What we don't like

Some Postgres features are not yet implemented e.g. upsert on conflict and foreign keys.
