Driving innovations in technology through big data

Enabling Cloud, Edge, Analytics, IoT, ML, AI and 5G with data

The Challenge

Information that once appeared in ledgers or arrived by mail now zips into our pockets in nanoseconds, exponentially growing the amount of data into a phenomenon known as “Big Data”.

The benefits to humanity of this unprecedented data evolution are enormous. Never has it been easier to conduct processes, share time-critical information, or simply stay in touch. Driving this transformation is the global information technology sector, a $8,370-billion1 innovation giant who is transforming our world forever.

With exciting changes on every front – from improvements in data analytics, cloud/edge computing, and IoT to new developments in machine learning, artificial intelligence and 5G connectivity – the possibilities are infinite.

The Solution

CrateDB offers a data infrastructure that is seamless, swift, and simple. Our innovative database system resolves many traditional data-flow limitations and blockages that impede companies from using the full potential of Big Data.

CrateDB is assisting technology companies in a range of operational contexts, from providing real-time dashboards for millions of cloud users to optimising analytics processes for video streaming, software security and customer behaviour.

Use Case

McAfee Logo
McAfee is the leading Cloud Access Security Broker servicing millions of customers worldwide. Since 2016, CrateDB has been deployed to handle tens of billions of network messages per day and thousands of data queries per second. CrateDB was chosen for its high scaling and performance capabilities to handle data from real-time dashboards for over three million end-users through clusters with several hundred database nodes in multiple clouds.

“CrateDB’s real-time SQL performance, simple scaling, and high availability make it a key element of our stack.”
Sekhar Sarukkai, SVP Engineering, McAfee

The results

  • Cost reduction by running 1,000s queries/sec using less hardware to perform workload
  • 75% lower cloud footprint
  • 20x faster than other databases
  • High performance of complex queries/sec under highly concurrent workloads
