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.
