Graph and Beyond.
With more than 11,000 stargazers on GitHub, ArangoDB is the leading open-source multi-model graph database. Powering the concept of ‘graph and beyond,’ ArangoDB combines the power of graphs with JSON documents, a key-value store, and a full-text search engine, enabling developers to access and combine all of these data models with a single, elegant, declarative query language.
Gaining the ability to perform graph analytics queries while also reducing the number of database technologies used in production is valuable for developers, operations, and business teams. ArangoDB's native support of all of these data models, a search engine, a built-in microservices framework, and a large presence of community integrations result in development efforts spent on the product and not the tooling.
ArangoDB facilitates modern application development with the following features:
Multi-Model: Store data natively. Access data with the right patterns.
AQL: As a declarative query language, those coming from SQL will feel right at home with AQL. With AQL, you can use JOINs, traversals, filters, geo-spatial operations, and aggregations & combine them in a single query.
ArangoDB OASIS: The managed cloud for ArangoDB, provides fully hosted, managed, & monitored cluster deployments of any size, with enterprise-grade security. Everybody can test it with a free deployment
Easy Deployment: ArangoDB runs everywhere. Deployment is very easy with the ArangoDB Starter and as well on Kubernetes with the ArangoDB Operator
ArangoML: When building a production-grade machine learning infrastructure, ArangoML Pipeline provides support for common metadata storage.
ArangoSearch: Natively integrated cross-platform indexing, text-search and ranking engine for information retrieval, optimized for speed and memory.
Consolidation: As a native multi-model database, can be used as a full blown document store, graph graph database, search engine or any combination of these technologies. If you need multiple data models, ArangoDB minimizes the components that you need to maintain, reducing the complexity of the technology stack for your application or usage. This means a lower total cost of ownership, increasing flexibility and consolidating your overall technical needs.
Strong Data Consistency: When using multiple single-model databases, data consistency becomes an issue. These databases aren’t meant to talk to each other, which means you need to implement some form of transaction functionality to keep your data consistent between different models. With ArangoDB, a single back-end manages your different data models with support for ACID transactions.
Simplified Performance Scaling: Applications grow and mature over time. With ArangoDB, you can easily react to growing performance and storage needs by independently scaling with different data models. ArangoDB scales both vertically and horizontally, and if your performance needs decrease, you can just as easily scale down your backend system to save on hardware and operational requirements.
Transactions: It is a real challenge to provide transactional guarantees across multiple machines and few NoSQL database provide these guarantees. As a native multi-model database, ArangoDB requires transactions to ensure data consistency. ArangoDB provides strong ACID consistency on single instances and atomic single document operations when running in cluster mode.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership: Each database technology you use needs ongoing maintenance, patches, bug fixes and other modifications delivered by the vendor. Each new update has to be tested by a specialized team member and tested for their overall fit into the current system. Using a multi-model database significantly reduces these maintenance costs as it allows you to reduce the number of database technologies you need for your application.
|Typical application scenarios|
Native multi-model in ArangoDB is being used for a broad range of projects across industries and company sizes. Single View of everything, cybersecurity, simulations in manufacturing, Identity & Access Management, Fraud detection, Recommendation Engines, Feature Engineering in Machine Learning & AI or Network Management & Surveillance are common use cases.
Single View of Everything - BA/BI Platform: Thomson Reuters leveraged ArangoDB to build a sophisticated ‘Single View of Everything’ BA/BI Platform. The case study provides insights to the following
Healthy Data Platform as a Service with ArangoDB: The Liaison technologies ALLOY™ Health Platform is a Data Platform as a Service (dPaaS) solution which was built using ArangoDB. In addition to using ArangoDB as a materialized view for customer data, ALLOY™ also makes extensive use of the system for metadata.
