Crate offers the benefits of the modern NoSQL world - masterless, scalable, easy to manage, fast - which is the opposite of the Relational world. However, its SQL query engine means that you can run real time queries just like you would on any relational database, but without the RDBMS overhead and much faster.
SQL-over-hadoop solutions make the same claims, but are, in fact, a translation layer overlaid on hadoop. Crate isn’t that - it is a masterless data store providing a distributed, real time query engine with standard SQL as query language.
A little disclaimer: comparisons depend on generalizations by their very nature. Let us know if you think we didn’t get something right and get in contact.
