Many within the analytic, cloud, Big Data and in the IoT industry are now unanimous that, in our ever-connected world, we are moving from application containers to distributed database containers where operational and analytics requirements are converging and where people and industries want streamlined database for strategic and critical needs.
Crate Technology, a distributed SQL database for containerized architectures has received a $4M investment led by Dawn Capital and joined by existing investors Sunstone Capital, DFJ Esprit and Speedinvest. Solomon Hykes, creator of the Docker project, also participated in the round.
A great momentum heading to more features and support our growing community of users.
For those who are unfamiliar, Crate is an open-source SQL database that is highly available, scalable and based on a ‘’shared-nothing masterless architecture’’. It can offer the scalability and simplicity of NoSQL, and can be accessed through standard SQL.
Designed for ad-hoc queries and dynamic schemas, Crate can be an ideal solution for the needs of hyper-growth applications in IoT, security and the web.
