The Crate open source project was launched in 2013 and today presents the simplest and most powerful option for any developer building a data intensive application. Crate.IO is the company responsible for keeping the momentum behind the Crate project. Crate remains 100% open.
Crate is an elastic distributed SQL data store. It is ideal for data intensive applications and combines the well known SQL interface with the document-oriented approach of modern NoSQL/MongoDB-style databases – the ideal middle ground for many developers. Crate is quick, powerful, and massively scalable.
