OrientDB 2.1 Accelerates Enterprise Adoption of the Leading Multi-Model Database

Includes Improved Security, Rock Solid Stability and 24×7 Support Across all Regions

London, UK (August 5, 2015) – Orient Technologies, the company behind OrientDB (www.orientdb.com), the graph-document database that pioneered the multi-model concept, announces the general availability of version 2.1 and the immediate global roll-out of 24×7 support services.

With more than 100 Enterprise customers and 1000’s of users leveraging the technology in mission-critical use cases, OrientDB is committed to constantly improving both the product and support experience. Their mission is to simplify the data management landscape by providing the only viable alternative to RDBMS for the modern enterprise.

Key New Features of OrientDB 2.1:

Enhanced Security – Auditing functionalities facilitate adoption of OrientDB in highly regulated environments. OrientDB Enterprise Auditing allows customers to track Change, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations on every object. Polymorphic auditing allows objects to inherit auditing directives, further simplifying policy definitions.

24×7 Support Services Available Globally – OrientDB is formally switching to a 24×7 support offering to cover around-the-clock requests. “Solid support is critical when deploying enterprise class software.” said Luca Garulli CEO of Orient Technologies. “We now stand ready to help our customers at any time, day or night, including weekends and holidays.”

Rock Solid Stability – Thousands of users have tested 2.1 in highly concurrent environments with extremely large datasets. Extensive feedback, focused effort and six release candidates have made this version the best ever. Together the OrientDB team and external contributors closed an impressive total of 389 issues with this release. “Customers and the user community have cooperated with us during the entire development cycle and helped us to battle-test this version in disparate use cases.” said Luca Olivari, President. “We won’t rest on our laurels, but 2.1 greatly expands our addressable market and use cases.”

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.

Orient Technologies is the main sponsor and the commercial supporter of OrientDB.

After 3 weeks we released the second release candidate of OrientDB 2.1. Many fixes and better performance on traversing graphs by using SQL. We measured 3x-10x in comparison to 2.1-rc1 and 2.0.x.

We suggest to use 2.1-rc2 only if you are in development. Instead, users in production should wait 2.1 GA for the upgrade.

Orient Technologies has released the first release candidate of OrientDB 2.1: 104 resolved issues and even more exciting innovative improvements! Before listing the release notes, I’d first like to share with all OrientDB users that the team is working non-stop to make OrientDB’s engine even more rock-solid and robust. None of this would be possible without the testing, issue reporting and contributions of our amazing user community. Many many thanks to everyone!

 

Community Driven

There are many NoSQL projects out of there, but not all of them are supported by a real community of users that are not employees of the company behind the product.

Special thanks to all the authors of the Pull Requests for this release.

    Support for multiple inheritance where classes can extend from multiple super classes

    New Live Query for Reactive application development

Download

You can download it from the official download page, or if you are using Maven, update the dependency to:

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.orientechnologies</groupId>
  <artifactId>orientdb-graphdb</artifactId>
  <version>2.1-rc1</version>
</dependency>

 

Can I use OrientDB v2.1-rc1 in production?

No. This is not the final 2.1 version. This release is the first Release Candidate (RC stands for Release Candidate) of v2.1 on the path to the final version in the upcoming days. We suggest using OrientDB v2.1-rc1 in development and test only. If you plan to go in production in less than three weeks, we suggest staying with OrientDB v2.0.7. Otherwise, go ahead and use OrientDB v2.1-rc1.

 

Is 2.1-rc1 compatible with previous versions of OrientDB?

You can open any database created with past versions of OrientDB. If you’re coming from 1.7.x or earlier, in order to use the new binary serialization, you are required to export and re-import the database. For more information, take a look at Migrate from 2.0.x.
