CrateDB: A Database or a Search Engine? Both!

Do you want to store huge amounts of data and search it in real time? Do you have unstructured and structured data? Do you want to run distributed joins? Do you want to leverage the power of SQL? If so, let’s talk about CrateDB.

CrateDB is an open-source, distributed SQL database that runs daily queries on millions of data records. It is built for data-intensive analytics with a PostgreSQL interface that runs anywhere, from on-premises to the cloud. In this talk, I will give you an introduction to CrateDB, its architecture, and how to make ingestion and analysis of a large amount of data extremely simple and efficient. You will learn how to get all the benefits of traditional databases while utilizing the scalability and efficiency of a distributed search engine.
