We are about building a new kind of data store: a zero administration data store that is massively scalable and dead simple to use. We have a strong open source background, mainly through Plone and Zope. We believe that open software is better software, and we have seen time and time again how openness enables organizations to achieve extraordinary outcomes with their data. OPEN SOURCE. Crate’s ability to rapidly build and ship innovative software owes a great deal to the availability of high-quality open-source software that is freely available to integrate as components of larger works. A few high profile modules power various pieces of our technology stack, namely Lucene, Netty, Elasticsearch and Facebook Presto. Crate delivers its software as Open Source, accessible at public open source repository on GitHub. Going forward, we will continue to release open source components of our software and make them available to the public.
