OrientDB Wins InfoWorld Bossie Award
InfoWorld recognizes OrientDB as one of the best open source infrastructure and management software platforms
London, UK (Sept 21, 2015) – Orient Technologies, the company behind OrientDB (www.orientdb.com), the graph-document database that pioneered the multi-model concept, announces that OrientDB is a winner of the prestigious InfoWorld 2015 Bossie Award.
InfoWorld editors and contributors pick the top open source software for data centers, clouds, developers, data crunchers, and IT professionals. They recognized OrientDB as having one of the best open source application development tools.
Steve Nunez explains: “OrientDB is an interesting hybrid in the NoSQL world, combining features from a document database, where individual documents can have multiple fields without necessarily defining a schema, and a graph database, which consists of a set of nodes and edges. At a basic level, OrientDB considers the document as a vertex, and relationships between fields as graph edges. Because the relationships between elements are part of the record, no costly joins are required when querying data.”
“It’s great to see OrientDB receiving the InfoWorld Bossie Award, as we’re more committed than ever to the open source and database communities.” said Luca Olivari, President of Orient Technologies. “We are seeing tremendous adoption and customer growth and, together with our ecosystem, are fulfilling our vision to become the operational data store of the modern enterprise.”
With downloads exceeding 60,000/month, more than 100 contributors and 1000’s of production users, OrientDB is the leading next generation native multi-model enterprise database combining the connectedness of graphs, the agility of documents and the familiar SQL dialect. Fortune 500 companies, government entities and startups use the technology to build large-scale innovative applications. Some of their clients include Ericsson, United Nations, Pitney Bowes, Sky, CenturyLink and Sonatype.
