Time series data, i.e., data consisting of a series of timestamps and corresponding values, is a special type of data occurring in settings such as “Smart Grids”. Extended analysis techniques called for a new type of databases: Time Series Databases (TSDBs), which are specialized for storing and querying time series data. In this work, we aim for a complete list of all available TSDBs and a feature list of popular open source TSDBs. The systematic search resulted in 83 TSDBs. The twelve most prominent found open source TSDBs are compared. Therefore, 27 criteria in six groups are defined: (i) Distribution/Clusterability, (ii) Functions, (iii) Tags, Continuous Calculation, and Long-term Storage, (iv) Granularity, (v) Interfaces and Extensibility, (vi) Support and License.
