Data Tiering

CrateDB's unique distributed architecture enables efficient data tiering and allows for data categorization into Hot, Warm, and Cold tiers based on access patterns and priority. This robust system ensures optimal speed for high-velocity, active data in the Hot tier, balances cost and performance for less frequently accessed data in the Warm tier, and provides cost-effective solutions for archival or seldom accessed data in the Cold tier.

The following benefits arise:

  • Efficient data management: manage data cost-effectively across different storage tiers based on access frequency and performance requirements.
  • Flexibility: utilize both automatic and manual data tiering, granting administrators the control to define policies for data movement or manually move data as needed.
  • Optimized resource utilization: significantly reduce costs and optimize resource utilization, allowing high-cost resources for critical workloads and lower-cost storage for less demanding tasks.
