ZDNet Article on Multi-Model Databases Almost Hits Bullseye

OrientDB helps to usher in a new era

In case you missed it, I am very proud to announce a mention of OrientDB in the amazing and very widely read business technology news website, ZDNet, in an article titled, The new era of the Multi-Model Database.multi-model databases

I was super excited to see at the very top of this article, prominently displayed, an OrientDB diagram showing how our multi-model graph database integrates multiple data models into a single, scalable, high-performance operational database.

Where we came from

The article itself delves into a little bit of the history of databases, which started as simple data stores and then, in response to the increasing data volume and variety, evolved into easily scalable, multi-model NoSQL data management platforms that can satisfy a wide range of use cases without leaving your data in silos. It then discusses a few multi-model database vendors.

The articles does really well to elucidate the clear advantages of multi-model databases over traditional relational databases and non-multi-model NoSQL databases.

Where is part 2?

An ideal “part 2” of this article would also differentiate the offerings in the multi-model space, in which OrientDB provides some unique and clear benefits:

Clearly we have entered the age of the multi-model NoSQL database. From here, the power to perform flawlessly at scale and with enterprise-grade security is what is going to separate the leaders from the laggers. OrientDB is leading, and you can learn more here.

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!
