ArangoDB is a multi-model, open-source database with flexible data models for documents, graphs, and key-values. Build high performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. Use ACID transactions if you require them. Scale horizontally with a few mouse clicks.

ArangoDB runs everywhere: On-prem, in the cloud and also onArangoDBs Cloud Service Oasis.

The supported data models can be mixed in queries and allow ArangoDB to be the aggregation point for your data.

Check out our training centerto get started and see the full documentationto dive deeper.

For the impatient:

  • Start the ArangoDB Docker container

docker run -e ARANGO_ROOT_PASSWORD=test123 -p 8529:8529 -d arangodb/arangodb

  • Alternatively, download and install ArangoDB. Start the server

if the installer did not do it for you.

Key Features in ArangoDB

  • Multi-Model: Documents, graphs and key-value pairs β€” model your data as you see fit for your application.
  • Joins: Conveniently join what belongs together for flexible ad-hoc querying, less data redundancy.
  • Transactions: Easy application development keeping your data consistent and safe. No hassle in your client.

Here is an AQL query that makes use of all those features:

AQL Query Example

Joins and transactions are key features for flexible, secure data designs, widely used in relational databases but lacking in many NoSQL products. However, there is no need to forgo them in ArangoDB. You decide how and when to use joins and strong consistency guarantees, without sacrificing performance and scalability.

Furthermore, ArangoDB offers a JavaScript framework called Foxxthat is executed in the database server with direct access to the data. Build your own data-centric microservices with a few lines of code. By extending the HTTP API with user code written in JavaScript, ArangoDB can be turned into a strict schema-enforcing persistence engine.

Other features of ArangoDB include:

  • Use a data-centric microservices approach with ArangoDB Foxx and fuse your application-logic and database together for maximal throughput
  • JavaScript for all: no language zoo, you can use one language from your browser to your back-end
  • Flexible data modeling: model your data as combination of key-value pairs, documents or graphs - perfect for social relations
  • Different storage engines: ArangoDB provides a storage engine for mostly in-memory operations and an alternative storage engine based on RocksDB which handle datasets that are much bigger than RAM.
  • Powerful query language (AQL) to retrieve and modify data
  • Transactions: run queries on multiple documents or collections with optional transactional consistency and isolation
  • Replication and Sharding: set up the database in a master-slave configuration or spread bigger datasets across multiple servers
  • Configurable durability: let the application decide if it needs more durability or more performance
  • Schema-free schemata let you combine the space efficiency of MySQL with the performance power of NoSQL
  • index support: exploit the perfect index types for your different use cases, including document queries, graph queries, geo location queries, and fulltext searches
  • ArangoDB is multi-threaded - exploit the power of all your cores
  • Easy to use web interface and command-line client tools for interaction with the server
  • It is open source (Apache License 2.0)
