Does IOT Need a Specialized Data Stack?

Are the databases we use today ready to handle the flood of new IoT data? Is it a job for SQL? NoSQL? Time series? Or is a multi-database architecture the best solution?

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear CTO and co-founder, Jodok Batlogg, share his answers to these questions.

Migrating from MySQL

CrateDB offers several advantages over MySQL: fast query performance, elastic scalability, and the ability to process structured and unstructured data with SQL (e.g., text search, time series, geospatial, etc.).

If you have an existing MySQL database that you’d like to migrate to CratedDB, this white paper outlines the best methods for doing so.

Achieving Scalability with CrateDB

Consistent performance scalability helps you plan and budget for the growth of your database platform. This white paper explains how to set up a CrateDB cluster to deliver linear query throughput scalability with time series data.

CrateDB vs. PostgreSQL Query Performance

CrateDB can perform very fast queries, over incredibly large datasets, in real-time as new data is being ingested.

To demonstrate this, we put together a benchmark that compares CrateDB vs PostgreSQL query performance. The results of this benchmark show that CrateDB performs significantly better than PostgreSQL with selects, aggregations, and grouping.

Get Started with CrateDB: Sensor Data

CrateDB can help make working with sensor data at scale easier than ever. Join us as we take you from download through everything you need to know to put CrateDB to work with your sensor data.

Get Started with CrateDB: Log Data

This webinar will show you how CrateDB can help you get more out of your log data. If you download CrateDB and join us, we’ll walk you through collecting log data from servers and inserting it into CrateDB. This data will then be visualized by building a Grafana dashboard before we show off how to use CrateDB’s fulltext search to analyze your logs.

Get Started with CrateDB: Geospatial Data

Working with Geospatial data involves meeting challenges of variety and scale. This webinar will take you through everything you need to know about putting CrateDB to work with your Geospatial data.

Scale your SQL Database with Docker

CrateDB is available as a Docker image and is a perfect data store for Docker based applications.

In this webinar we will help you ensure your containerized databases are performing at their best, and walk you through how to run CrateDB on Docker.

Migrating to NewSQL

NoSQL databases offer data flexibility and scalability, but increase access lock-in, making them harder to adopt and integrate.

NewSQL databases like CrateDB combine the ease of use of SQL with the scalability and data flexibility of NoSQL databases.

Join this webinar to learn what’s so new about NewSQL databases, what workloads they handle best, and best practices for putting them into use.
