Newsletters Provides New Tier Model for CrateDB Cloud, the enterprise data management company, is offering a new tier for CrateDB Cloud, offering the ability to deploy it with shared infrastructure resources and suspend compute power.

With the deployment of this new tier of CrateDB Cloud, customers have access to more cost-effective options that enable use cases with changing requirements or smaller use cases with the flexibility to turn on and off compute power, according to the vendor.

With this new tier, CrateDB optimizes the memory utilization, which means a Cluster only occupies the resources it requires. The available resources on a machine can now be booked in an overlapping manner which allows more Clusters to be started on a virtual machine.

In addition, is introducing the capability to suspend (Start/Stop) clusters on all CrateDB Cloud tier models.

When a Cluster is suspended, the user will only have to pay the cost for storage in use. By keeping the storage available, a Cluster can go from suspended to active almost immediately without any time consuming restore operations, according to the company.

It also enables development teams to run Proof of Concepts or perform workload testing - this can all be performed without costs spiraling and disrupting operations. In a cost efficient and timely way, these tasks can be completed seamlessly.

“We see this new tier model providing key add-ons for our customers using CrateDB Cloud. They are both subtle in terms of their immediate impact, but the benefits are long lasting. These new features are saving our customers money in several ways, whilst ensuring the level of operational efficiency they expect,” said Roman Meingassner, CrateDB could product manager.
