I've just read and 2/3 of this article shows TS has more advantage than InfluxDB. I just wonder why TS instead of just use PostgreSQL directly?

(Timescaler here.) That's a common question, and one we address in this post: https://blog.timescale.com/timescaledb-vs-6a696248104e

tl;dr TimescaleDB vs. PostgreSQL: 20x higher inserts, 2000x faster deletes, 1.2x-14,000x faster queries, additional functions for time-series analytics (e.g., first(), last(), time_bucket() [1])
