The CrateDB open source project was launched in 2013 - the first distributed SQL DBMS built on a NoSQL foundation to help developers put machine data to work, simply. Crate.io is the company responsible for keeping the momentum behind the CrateDB project.
CrateDB is a distributed SQL database built on a NoSQL foundation. It is familiar to use, simple to scale, and versatile for handling any type of structured or unstructured data with real-time query performance.
