SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Crate.io announced today that the Tech Trailblazers, an independent and dedicated awards program for enterprise information technology startups, has named Crate.io winner of the Big Data Trailblazer award.
After many months of review and judged by a panel of leading enterprise technology professionals, Crate.io was named the winner among other companies that drive innovation in big data. The other nominees include Adavow Ltd., CoHo Data, DriveScale, illumrLondon, and NGDATAGent.
The next wave of big data is being generated by “things.” Sensors, vehicles, networks, and servers generating millions of data points per second. CrateDB is a new kind of database created to help mainstream SQL developers put that data to work. It’s an open source, distributed SQL database that combines SQL and search in a way that’s versatile and simple to scale.
“We are extremely pleased to have been recognized as the winner for Big Data Trailblazer,” said Jodok Batlogg, Co-founder and CTO of Crate.io. “This award illustrates the value that CrateDB is bringing to a wide range of organizations seeking to store massive amounts of data for IoT and machine learning.”
