Webinar: When traditional RDBMs fail
When querying data at scale, traditional databases often become a bottleneck because of results loading too slowly. This experience can result in a subpar experience for your customers and users.
Horizontally scalable databases like CrateDB often outperforms Postgres when it comes to aggregations, search, or simple query speed. This is because CrateDB utilizes columnar field caches and integrates full-text search features, allowing you to perform ad-hoc queries with different types of data in real-time. On top of that, its schema flexibility and horizontal scalability enables rapid application development; all combined with the power of SQL.
Want to see CrateDB in action? We will briefly cover CrateDB’s architecture and then dive into some common queries used to measure query performance with Postgres and CrateDB. We’ll be using a large 311 dataset for our queries.
