Time Series Data Lifecycle

← Go back to Time Series Database

CrateDB handles the time series data lifecycle through efficient partitioning, tiering, retention, and snapshot strategies.

  • Partitioning & Data Retention: CrateDB's partitioning feature divides datasets into manageable portions and optimizes storage by automatically creating or removing partitions as needed. Data retention is managed using partitioned tables, and outdated data is removed using the DELETE FROM statement. Read more >

  • Data Tiering: CrateDB supports different storage types - hot for frequently accessed data and cold for less accessed data. Read more >

  • Snapshots: CrateDB's snapshots archive old table partitions at a specific moment, storing them in various backends. These are essential for data backup, restoration, and recovery from lost or corrupted data. Regular backup and restoration testing is crucial for disaster planning. Read more >
