I recently had a great conversation with Jodok Batlogg, Co-Founder and CEO, Crate Data. We talked about how his experience as CTO of StudiVZ and CEO of Lovely Systems informed how they designed and built CrateDB. A few months ago Crate ended up as the top story on Hacker News, which caught the founders by surprise! I’m looking forward to hosting a free webcast featuring Jodok on July 8th:
Crate Data is a shared-nothing, fully searchable, document-oriented cluster data store. Today, developers need to “glue” several technologies together to store documents, blobs and support searches and queries in near real time over big data. This isn’t always simple or scalable and requires a lot of manual tuning, sharding etc. Crate Data is an open source project that attempts to provide a super simple developers’ nirvana – a real time SQL data store for big data – using elasticsearch, Lucene, Netty and Presto. In this webcast we will demonstrate, step-by-step example how a web service can be deployed with the full service stack (data and application) on a single node and then add nodes as needed just by starting them. Crate is self-configuring and self-healing and can be deployed on one device, many devices or the cloud.
