Crate is a distributed data store and is revolutionizing the way you build scalable back ends. Crate’s distributed database offers simplicity and scalability, rather than leaving you to wonder how to scale up when your data grows from millions to billions. Companies can spread out their data as needed, while Crate takes care of synchronization, sharing, scaling, and replication even for big data sets.
Crate makes central databases obsolete and instead allows Crate to install the data on individual application servers, thus making large scaling manageable. Crate raised $ 1.5 million from investors, including Sunstone And DFJ Esprit, in 2014 alone. It also won a £30,000 prize at TechCrunch Disrupt Europe 2014 in London, UK.
