CrateIO vs InfluxDB: What are the differences?

Developers describe CrateIO as "The Distributed Database for Docker". Crate is a distributed data store. Simply install Crate directly on your application servers and make the big centralized database a thing of the past. Crate takes care of synchronization, sharding, scaling, and replication even for mammoth data sets. On the other hand, InfluxDB is detailed as "An open-source distributed time series database with no external dependencies". InfluxDB is a scalable datastore for metrics, events, and real-time analytics. It has a built-in HTTP API so you don't have to write any server side code to get up and running InfluxDB is designed to be scalable, simple to install and manage, and fast to get data in and out..

CrateIO and InfluxDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by CrateIO are:

  • Familiar SQL syntax
  • Semi-structured data
  • High availability, resiliency, and scalability in a distributed design

On the other hand, InfluxDB provides the following key features:

  • Time-Centric Functions
  • Scalable Metrics
  • Events

"Simplicity" is the primary reason why developers consider CrateIO over the competitors, whereas "Time-series data analysis" was stated as the key factor in picking InfluxDB.

CrateIO and InfluxDB are both open source tools. InfluxDB with 16.7K GitHub stars and 2.38K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than CrateIO with 2.49K GitHub stars and 333 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to CrateIO and InfluxDB?
      MySQL
      The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
      PostgreSQL
      PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
      MongoDB
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
      Microsoft SQL Server
      Microsoft® SQL Server is a database management and analysis system for e-commerce, line-of-business, and data warehousing solutions.
      MariaDB
      Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.

      Influx doesn't currently natively support horizontal distribution. Hard to recommend it until they implement that.

      We use InfluxDB as a store for our data that gets fed into Grafana. It's ideal for this as it's a lightweight storage engine that can be modified on the fly by scripts without having to log into the server itself and manage tables. The HTTP API also makes it ideal for integrating with frontend services.

      To track time-series of course, utilizing few retention rules and continuous queries to keep time-series data fast and maintanable

      InfluxDB ingests information from various sources (mostly Telegraf instances) into one place for monitoring purposes.
