logocircleOrientDB v2.2 Community Edition was released in May 2016. As most of you know, in this release OrientDB focused on security, performance, stability, APIs and operations. It was a major overhaul to our previous 2.1 release and was well received by the OrientDB community as a whole. Compared to v2.1, version v2.2 saw huge improvements on performance. With 2 nodes we measured 5 times better ,and with 3 nodes OrientDB v2.2 is 10 times faster than v2.1! Now, for those in need of enterprise level features, we’ve just released OrientDB v2.2.2 Enterprise Edition. For this release, we’ve bundled the features meant to be released in versions 2.2.0 & 2.2.1, skipped those releases and went straight to OrientDB v2.2.2 Enterprise Edition! OrientDB v2.1 EE users can now safely upgrade to our GA release of Enterprise v2.2.2 which includes the following features:

  • Metric Analysis
  • Query Profiler
  • Configurable Alerts
  • Scheduler for Full and Incremental Non-Stop Backups
  • Auditing to track all the access to your data

Our Enterprise edition is free for development only, and comes bundled in our OrientDB Bronze, Silver or Gold subscription packages along with a production license.

 New Enterprise Only Features

Previous enterprise only features such as Auditing have now been made generally available and are included in OrientDB 2.2 Community Edition. Security is paramount and with the inclusion of new general features such as LDAP importing, password validation support, SALT encryption, System User and System Database, Auditing events were made widely available to all. OrientDB 2.2.2 Enterprise edition now includes new Enterprise only features such as:

effective and efficient mapping between two models

 

Teleporter

Importing a database from Oracle or any relational DBMS has never been this easy. Teleporter is now included in OrientDB enterprise and not only allows you to migrate your data, it enables database syncing as well. Though importing databases is available in our free Enterprise Edition, syncing your database requires a production license included in our Subscription Packages.

Non-Stop Incremental Backup and Restore

One of our most requested features is our Incremental backup function. With OrientDB v2.2.2 Enterprise Edition, there’s no need to stop your database while performing backups! An incremental backup generates smaller backup files by storing only the delta between two versions of the database. This is useful when you execute a backup on a regular basis and you want to avoid having to back up the entire database each time.

 

New Community & Enterprise Features

 

Pattern Matching

The new SQL MATCH expression enables optimization of pattern matching queries based on available indexes. With its simplified syntax, OrientDB’s pattern matching functions introduced in Version 2.2 makes finding connections, relations, patterns and data aggregation much easier, allowing you to unleash the full potential of your data to best fit your use case.

Spatial Index

OrientDB uses Lucene under the hood for Full-Text and Spatial indexes. For other indexes, OrientDB has its own compression algorithms. OrientDB kept the syntax from PostGIS, so if you’re already familiar with it, then using these functions with OrientDB should be very similar. To speed up spatial search and match condition, spatial operators and functions can use a spatial index if defined to avoid sequential full scan of every records. Geometry objects, supported as as embedded documents, include: Point (OPoint), Line (OLine), Polygon (OPolygon), MultiPoint (OMultiPoint), MultiLine (OMultiline), MultiPolygon (OMultiPlygon), Geometry Collections.

Upgrading From v2.1

It is recommended that all those using previous versions of OrientDB Enterprise Edition upgrade to version 2.2.2. If you’re worried about compatibility issues, databases created with release 2.1.x are compatible with 2.2.x, so there’s no need to export/import your database.
