ArangoDB: a Universal Database

This talk provides an introduction to ArangoDB. ArangoDB is a an open source NoSQL database aiming to be a powerful universal database. It allows flexible data modelling as key-value pairs, documents or graph data. It allows complex queries through an elegant query language.

An embedded JavaScript interpreter allows you to add functionality to the database for transactions, complex manipulations of the objects, treating AvocadoDB as a complete application server – database stack. ArangoDB guarantees durability through MVCC with append-only journals and zero-administration availability through synchronous replication. It utilizes main memory and SSDs to deliver maximal performance. Even though ArangoDB is still a young project, it has already attracted international attention, especially in Japan and the USA. The community is currently working on APIs for Python, D, Ruby, Java and node.js.
