Simply scalable

Growing a database should be easy, and it is with CrateDB.
Automatic data rebalancing and a shared-nothing architecture enable you to scale simply. Just add new machines to create and grow a CrateDB cluster. There’s no need to know how to redistribute data on the cluster because CrateDB does it for you.

Distributed SQL

Distributed SQL queries, aggregations, and search

CrateDB’s distributed SQL query engine combines inverted indexes and columnar data structures with a modern query planner.
These give CrateDB the unique ability to perform aggregations, JOINs, sub-selects, and ad-hoc queries at in-memory speed. CrateDB also integrates native, full-text search features, which enable you to store and query structured or unstructured data together. Therefore, you no longer have to use separate SQL and Search databases to manage tabular and non-tabular data.

Highly available​

Highly available

Even if things go wrong in your data center, CrateDB keeps running.
Automatic replication of data across your cluster and rolling software updates help ensure hardware failures and scheduled maintenance do not interrupt access to data. In addition, CrateDB clusters are self healing, so when nodes are added to the cluster, CrateDB automatically loads them with data.
