OrientDB launches its Open Source NoSQL Graph-Document Database through CenturyLink’s Cloud Marketplace

 

LONDON, UK – March 17, 2016 OrientDB, the pioneer behind the world’s first Open Source, NoSQL distributed graph-document database, today announced its certification under the CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program. Through this partnership, CenturyLink Cloud users are now able to deploy and manage OrientDB’s community or enterprise edition databases via CenturyLink’s Blueprints library.

OrientDB is a second-generation distributed graph database with the flexibility of documents and an open source Apache 2 license. By treating every vertex and edge as a JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) document, OrientDB enables the creation of multi-directional property graphs, allowing bulks of data to be traversed with ease. This new multi-model approach, with a polyglot engine, eliminates the need for multiple systems, ensures data consistency and optimizes the formation of complex relationships. Even for a document-based database, the relationships are managed, as in graph databases, with direct connections amongst records. Its versatility and rapid integration makes OrientDB a perfect candidate for use cases ranging from recommendation engines and fraud detection to real-time analytics and content management. Fortune 500 companies, government entities and startups all use the technology to build large-scale innovative applications.

CenturyLink Cloud customers can now benefit from OrientDB’s features:

  • All-in-one graph, document and object store database
  • Stores 220,000 records per second on common hardware
  • ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability) compliant
  • Support for HTTP and JSON
  • Supports schema-less, schema-full and schema-mixed modes
  • Strong security profiling system based on user and roles
  • Despite being a NoSQL database, it still supports SQL amongst the query languages, making it familiar to those coming from a relational database background
  • Supports multi-master replication

OrientDB Community Edition is free for any purpose (including commercial use). OrientDB Enterprise Edition serves as an extension of the Community Edition by providing enterprise-needed features such as: Query Profiler, distributed clustering configuration, metrics recording, and Live Monitor with configurable alerts.

The CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program allows participating technology companies, like OrientDB, to integrate with the CenturyLink Cloud platform. These additional business-ready solutions are available to CenturyLink’s cloud, hosting and network customers.

“Companies hoping to leverage big data are getting tired of dealing with multiple systems and increasing infrastructural costs,” said Luca Garulli, CEO of OrientDB. “Customers choose OrientDB for its innovative Multi-model database capabilities and affordable nature. Expanding our capabilities to the cloud through CenturyLink provides the perfect accessible solution without the need for multiple database systems or costly servers.”

“The foundation of the big data revolution on our platform has been software innovation around unstructured data management,” said David Shacochis, vice president of platform enablement at CenturyLink, “OrientDB is a great example of this trend, allowing our customers to manage their unstructured data relations in a scalable model that drives insight out of their business workloads”
