London – January 16th, 2017

By OrientDB CEO, Luca Garulli

After ransomware groups recently wiped off about 34,000 MongoDB database and exposed about 35,000 Elastic Search databases on the Internet*(read the full article), we advise that OrientDB users double check their OrientDB server.

OrientDB’s average level of security is much stronger than both MongoDB and ElasticSearch. However, nothing can keep you totally safe, specially if you are exposing an OrientDB server directly to the Internet and/or you haven’t changed the default password in your database.

Follow this 5 minute action plan to keep your OrientDB database safe:

1. If you aren’t using the default users (admin, reader and writer), then delete them.

2. If you’re using them, be sure you changed the password for all 3 default users: admin, reader and writer.

3. When you installed OrientDB for the first time, the script asked for the root password. Make sure you didn’t set something obvious such as “root“, “orientdb“, “password“, or any other simple/obvious password.

Now a little advice to keep OrientDB even more secure:

1. If you can, don’t expose the OrientDB server to the Internet.security-box

2. Remember that starting from v2.2 you can configure stronger SALT cycles for hashed passwords. Take a look at the following page for more details: http://orientdb.com/docs/2.2/Database-Security.html#password-management.

3. If you’re working with very sensitive data, please consider using Encryption at REST with AES algorithm. For more details, take a look at the following page: http://orientdb.com/docs/2.2/Database-Encryption.html.

4. Don’t use a password at all. Since v2.2.14, OrientDB Enterprise Edition supports authentication via symmetric keys for the Java client. See http://orientdb.com/docs/2.2/Security-Symmetric-Key-Authentication.html.

5. Lastly, don’t forget OrientDB’s other advanced security features, such as Kerberos authentication, LDAP users, password validation, and auditing.

  1. Database Security
  2. Server Security

For any question, don’t hesitate to ask to the Community Group.

Thanks and keep your data safe!

This month OrientDB launched its new Client Referral Program aimed at rewarding users who recommend clients to use OrientDB’s enterprise, consulting or support options.

Here at OrientDB, we’ve always known and been proud that many of our sales come from client or community referrals. Whenever a new client says they learned about us from user reviews or from a direct contact using OrientDB Community or Enterprise editions, we take it as reassurance that our focus on software development will help drive our sales. This is not a novel strategy but one that our CEO Luca Garulli has always believed in, as our main goal is to make innovative technologies more accessible to a wider market.

“Instead of investing huge resources in marketing and sales like our competitors are doing, we prefer to focus on the product and the community first. It’s not new, other companies like Atlassian® or slack® have proven that you can build a successful product without big investments on marketing campaigns.”

Luca Garulli, CEO @ OrientDB

That’s the reason our Community edition uses an Apache 2 license. We could restrict our open source version by not
making it available for commercial use, or as some of our competitors do, we could further restrict users by forcing them to make their applications open source in order to use OrientDB Community. From any users point of view, these are all deterrents when selecting what database to use, not only from a budgetary point of view, but simply because people generally don’t like to be forced down a path they didn’t initially contemplate.

Our strategy is working. Throughout 2016 we saw sustained growth in both OrientDB Community adoption as well as increased sales for our Enterprise, Support and Consulting services. OrientDB is not only one of the most popular graph databases in the world, this year we’ve proven that the Multi-Model database is here to stay as an innovative, affordable and powerful solution for small, medium and large enterprises.

All this brings me to our new referral program. As our community of developers grows and our client portfolio referral imageexpands, the amount of referrals this year increased significantly.Obviously we also hope our initiative will help drive sales even further, but we thought it’s only be fair to extend our gratitude to all those who recommend OrientDB by giving them a portion of our sales revenue (up to 10% of a contract’s value for those who recommend 3 or more clients).

We also wanted to make this simple. To enter the program you must simply fill out a form with your referrals details and personal information. If the client you referred signs a contract with OrientDB within 90 days, one of our sales representatives will contact you so that we may process your bonus.

So if you’re using OrientDB and know of anyone looking for a powerful yet affordable NoSQL solution, take a look at our referral program.

Happy Holidays!

Today I’m glad to announce that the OrientDB Team has started supporting officially the TinkerPop 3 standard in the “develop” branch, namely OrientDB v3.0.

Michael Pollmeier (@mpollmeier), the author of the already excellent OrientDB-Gremlin driver, transferred it under the OrientDB umbrella:

https://github.com/orientechnologies/orientdb-gremlin

Together with Michael, also Marvin Froeder (@velo) joined the team as committer of the project. They will work, together with the OrientDB team, to make this driver ready for OrientDB v3.0. From the OrientDB side, the owner of this project is Enrico Risa (@maggiolo00).

Guys, we’re looking for new contributors. The roadmap is still open. So far the most important things are:
– Better support for indexes
– Usage of the new GraphAPI in the OrientDB core 3.0
– Better coverage of TinkerPop 3 features

By transferring the original project the entire history and issues are preserved. if you are already using it, please reset the master source of the git repository to it.

Best Regards,

Luca Garulli

Last week an announcement was made that RethinkDB was forced to shut down because they were unable to reach financial sustainability after 8 years.

tumblr_nx8pqsUKV91qcftiyo1_500

The team reported that RethinkDB will remain an open project and it looks like they are looking for a new house/sponsor that can lead the development of the product for the future. I hope RethinkDB can succeed in taking the project forward, but the chances of becoming a “zombie” project (neither dead nor alive) are very high.

We have all seen open source database projects with similar fates, as was the case with Titan’s Graph Database. More than 1 year ago, the entire Titan Graph Database team moved to another database company, leaving the project in a zombie status with no active development.

I have to say that RethinkDB was an interesting project from a technical point of view. It was the only DBMS that shared our Reactive vision. But just having a valid project doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be able to create a sustainable business around it.

Why is it so important to have a company sponsor an Open Source project? The most successful Open Source projects have at least one or even more of them. Look at the Linux sponsorship (RedHat, Canonical, IBM, etc) or to remain in the DBMS field, take a look at MySQL: Without MySQL AB, then Sun Microsystems and now Oracle, MySQL wouldn’t have become the successful product we all know today.

At OrientDB, we know very well that transforming an Open Source project into a profitable business isn’t an easy thing to do. However, we have been profitable since our first year. We have a unique business plan: our happy clients are our investors. Answering only to them helps keep us on the right path. This year will mark a new record in revenue and the Multi-Model concept is becoming so viral that other competitors like MongoDB, CouchBase and Datastax (Cassandra) have already announced that they’ll be adopting a multi-model soon, following the path we started in 2010. That’s some great validation for us.

If you are a RethinkDB user and you’d like to explore new opportunities, take a look at OrientDB starting from the Live Query page. If you are missing some of the features of RethinkDB that you’d like to see in OrientDB, don’t hesitate to create a new feature request on our GitHub account. We are always looking for ways to improve OrientDB and stay on the cutting edge.

Wishing the best to the RethinkDB Open Source project,

Luca Garulli
Founder & CEO
OrientDB LTD
