Database Consolidation

CrateDB is an open source, multi-model and distributed database that offers high performance, scalability and flexibility. CrateDB simplifies your data infrastructure and helps you overcome the challenges of growing complexity and technical debt. It offers a single source of truth kept updated in near real-time that natively supports multiple data types - all in one place.

Real-time unified data repository

Maintain a single source of truth updated in real-time, eliminating the need for multiple databases per use case, simplifying complexity, and ensuring data consistency.

Reduced TCO

Streamline infrastructure management, reducing server count, software licenses, and operational complexities, resulting in cost savings.


Simplified management and maintenance

Experience simplified database management, reducing the need for specialized skills, training, and dedicated personnel. 


Data synchronization

Streamline the integration of various data types and sources effortlessly within CrateDB, with no need for manual data synchronization. CrateDB ensures seamless consolidation and management of all data types within a unified environment. 


Dynamic schema

Utilize CrateDB's dynamic schema to store various data types (tables, documents, time-series, geospatial data, binary objects, and vectors) within a singular technology, reducing the requirement for multiple databases catering to distinct use cases.


Native SQL

Effortlessly access and manipulate data using CrateDB's native SQL, making it easier to get started and integrate into your existing workflows and applications.


Support for AI/ML

Empower data applications with CrateDB's robust support for machine learning, artificial intelligence, and natural language applications.

High scalability and availability

Leverage CrateDB's distributed execution engine for high-volume read and write operations, ensuring high performance under significant loads. The shared-nothing architecture allows horizontal scalability and maintains high availability.


Flexible deployment options

Benefit from CrateDB's adaptability across diverse deployment options: Private or Public Cloud, On-Premises, or Edge. CrateDB also supports Hybrid scenarios out of the box.

Transformative Effects of Real-Time AI

Learn from Christian Kurze, VP Product, how CrateDB solves today’s data challenges of high money, people, and time requirements and growing complexity and tech debt over time.

ClearVoice migrates from MySQL to CrateDB

Jeff Nappi discovered CrateDB in Hacker News and decided to benchmark its performance against his existing MySQL setup. Learn how their aggregate querying went from 20 minutes to milliseconds after migrating to CrateDB.

"CrateDB was a better solution for our needs than any other SQL or NoSQL database we tried. It was easy to migrate code off of our legacy SQL database and onto CrateDB to immediately benefit from its data flexibility and scalable performance."

"After a successful and problem-free implementation it became clear to us that CrateDB was the solution we were looking for. We gained better performance and new possibilities for our customers. We are going to improve and extend our cloud system using CrateDB."

"I started looking at CrateDB and was impressed by the quality of the code. Switching from MySQL to CrateDB took a couple of days. It was very convenient to integrate CrateDB into our existing base even though it was written for a different database. The fact that CrateDB uses SQL lowers the barrier to entry when using distributed search. And on top of that, with CrateDB you can replace MongoDB and Elastisearch with one scalable package ."

"With CrateDB it was extremely easy to have a single place that we could query through our entire system within milliseconds at any moment in time, and this was impossible before."
