ArangoDB

Build Status

ArangoDB is a universal open-source database with flexible data model for documents, graphs, and key-values. Build high performance application using a convenient sql-like query language or JavaScript/Ruby extensions.

Key features include:

  • Schema-free schemata let you combine the space efficiency of MySQL with the performance power of NoSQL
  • Use ArangoDB as an application server and fuse your application and database together for maximal throughput
  • JavaScript for all: no language zoo, you can use one language from your browser to your back-end
  • ArangoDB is multi-threaded - exploit the power of all your cores
  • Flexible data modeling: model your data as combination of key-value pairs, documents or graphs - perfect for social relations
  • Free index choice: use the correct index for your problem, be it a skip list or a n-gram search
  • Configurable durability: let the application decide if it needs more durability or more performance
  • No-nonsense storage: ArangoDB uses all of the power of modern storage hardware, like SSD and large caches
  • Powerful query language (AQL) to retrieve data
  • It is open source (Apache Licence 2.0)
