CrateDB Clients and Tools

About CrateDB

CrateDB is a distributed and scalable open-source SQL database for storing and analyzing massive amounts of data in near real-time, even with complex queries. It is PostgreSQL-compatible, and based on Lucene.

Users are operating CrateDB clusters that store information in the range of billions of records, and terabytes of data, equally accessible without any retrieval penalty on data point age.


This section introduces you to the canonical set of database drivers, client- and developer-applications, and how to configure them to connect to CrateDB. Just to name a few, it is about the CrateDB Admin UI, crash, psql, DataGrip, and DBeaver applications, the Java/JDBC/Python drivers, the SQLAlchemy and Flink dialects, and more.
