CrateIO vs TimescaleDB: What are the differences?
What is CrateIO? 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.
What is TimescaleDB? Scalable time-series database optimized for fast ingest and complex queries. Purpose-built as a PostgreSQL extension. TimescaleDB is the only open-source time-series database that natively supports full-SQL at scale, combining the power, reliability, and ease-of-use of a relational database with the scalability typically seen in NoSQL databases.
CrateIO and TimescaleDB 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, TimescaleDB provides the following key features:
- Packaged as a PostgreSQL extension
- Full ANSI SQL
- JOINs (e.g., across PostgreSQL tables)
CrateIO and TimescaleDB are both open source tools. TimescaleDB with 7.28K GitHub stars and 385 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than CrateIO with 2.49K GitHub stars and 333 GitHub forks.
