Key highlights include senior management hires, community awards, coverage by leading analysts, record subscription growth and breakthrough product innovation
London, UK (February 2, 2016) – OrientDB Ltd, the company behind the first-ever distributed multi-model database, announces a year of record growth that paves the way for a transformative 2016.
Leading analysts continue to highlight the surge of multi-model databases and the tremendous opportunity for customers to accelerate the pace of innovation by using a few operational databases rather than many different technologies. Natively supporting graphs, documents and the familiar SQL dialect, OrientDB is a general-purpose solution to naturally process today’s data which is generated at unbelievable speed. That opens the doors to a new class of applications, drastically reduces the costs and removes the need to keep multiple DBMSes aligned.
“With the release of OrientDB 2.1 and breakthrough innovation coming in OrientDB 2.2, we are making the industry’s first distributed document-graph database even better.” said Luca Garulli, CEO and Founder. “When I started to work on OrientDB back in 2010, I could only imagine the pace of growth we’re seeing today thanks to our customers, users and advocates.”
“The multi-model market started to blossom in 2015 as enterprises shift towards a simplified architecture that marries connected, unstructured and structured data processed at a speed never possible before,” said Luca Olivari, President. “OrientDB pioneered the multi-model approach and is best positioned to capitalize on this massive change.”
With downloads exceeding 70,000 per month, more than 100 community contributors and 1000’s of production users, OrientDB is experiencing tremendous growth in both community and Enterprise adoption. The native multi-model database combines the connectedness of graphs, the agility of documents and the familiar SQL dialect. Fortune 500 companies, government entities and startups all use the technology to build large-scale innovative applications. Some of their clients include Ericsson, the United Nations, Pitney Bowes, Sky, CenturyLink and Sonatype. OrientDB recently won the prestigious 2015 Infoworld Bossie award.
