Scale up your use case efficiently without driving up costs
Databases like MongoDB can't meet the scalability needs of IoT use-cases. This is especially true for large volumes of time-series data: MongoDB gets expensive rather quickly when it's time to scale. Migrate to CrateDB and easily grow with your use-case.
If you're suffering from low memory, poor performance, or difficult maintenance, you’re experiencing the common pitfalls of using MongoDB for large-scale IoT projects.
This migration starter kit will tell you everything about it, including:

Better performance for less price
In a proof-of-concept prepared for one of our industrial IoT customers, CrateDB Cloud was tested against MongoDB Atlas. Querying 1 TB of data (8 billion records) over a 3h period, CrateDB outperformed MongoDB in both load and speed… And CrateDB was 80% cheaper.
Why not TimescaleDB or InfluxDB?
Databases designed to exclusively handle time-series data won’t solve your scalability problems, as they are conceived as single-node. They don’t provide good performance in use-cases with high ingestion and concurrent clients, and they often need to be combined with a relational database.
What we've heard from customers:
"MongoDB is a good fit for storing documents, but it was the wrong technology for my IoT use-case at scale. In other words: MongoDB is like a Swiss Army knife —but what are you going to do with a Swiss Army knife when you have to change a flat tire on the side of the road?"
