1. Even though it is newer, distributed TimescaleDB is probably more robust and easier to operate (and already more operationally mature) than other local storage options for Prometheus metrics, in part thanks to the underlying maturity of Postgres.

2. Yes, supporting PromQL directly (ie not via remote_read) is already in internal testing. Coming very soon.

Would really appreciate feedback if/when you get to try it out yourself. Please feel free to ping me directly: ajay (at) timescale.com
