CrateDB is a distributed SQL database that makes it simple to store and analyze massive amounts of machine data in real-time.
CrateDB offers the scalability and flexibility typically associated with a NoSQL database, is designed to run on inexpensive commodity servers and can be deployed and run on any sort of network - from personal computers to multi-region hybrid clouds.
The smallest CrateDB clusters can easily ingest tens of thousands of records per second. The data can be queried, ad-hoc, in parallel across the whole cluster in real time.
Standard SQL interface available via HTTP API and PostgreSQL wire protocol.
Dynamic schemas, queryable objects, geospatial features, time series data support, and realtime full-text search providing functionality for handling both relational and document oriented nested data structures.
Horizontally scalable, highly available and fault tolerant clusters that run very well in virtualized and containerised environments.
Extremely fast distributed query execution.
Auto-partitioning, auto-sharding, and auto-replication.
Self-healing and auto-rebalancing.
