What do you like best?

The AQL query language is the best by far.

What I also like a lot is that you can start using arango as a replacement for mongo and progressively as the project scales you might need the search or graph etc so no extra database is needed, and that's awesome! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like is the fact that if you want to start using the cloud version, you have to go to a paid version from day one.

There should be a free tier for people to play around for very small projects.

AWS, Google etc have free tiers for their databases to attract more developers to use their services. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For me, what I found great is the ability to make complex queries very easily using AQL. Also what is great is that you combine multiple database types into one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Being a startup our solution went through multiple iterations and changes at a rapid pace, we were able to keep up with the changes on the data side easily with Arangodb. Queries are simple and straightforward making complex querying easy. The web interface enables the rest of the team with the least Arangodb knowledge to cope easily. Strongly recommend for growing teams and startups. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The community is not big and matured yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are an early-stage startup look no further, just go ahead with ArangoDB Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being a startup our development was rapid and went through multiple iterations of change. Most importantly the entire team need not understand aql to keep up with the DB, that saved a lot of development time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the way you can easily use AQL queries, the documentation is comprehensive, also the software has a good default configuration, it also provides good facilities, it also allows to combine multiple functionalities within a single query that resembles a function in the language. programming, it also provides a robust and feature-rich database implementation, the ability to have a document store with junctions and graphics connections with cluster support is amazing, it also has excellent graphics features that allow it to be used as a single data source for a variety of client applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Multi model

AQL

Foxx Microservices framework

Arango search

Arango Oasis

Arangdb brings database technology to the next level. It simplifies the data model in an organisation by going away from the need of polyglot persistence. AQL is an amazing stuff which combines all the data model in one query and it’s ability to return back data in various structures. The recent addition of Arango search is a promising feature which can currently perform good amount of search patterns with out needing any additional persistence from the application. In my opinion Arango is a true multi model database which can perform a variety of user requirements. I really enjoyed working with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the Arango web UI can be enhanced to have many features which includes taking hot backups Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This database is very simple to visualize and implement your data models. Also the querying in AQL are pretty simple. Anyone with basic programming knowledge too can adapt to it quickly. The graph features provide a completely different picture. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much about the database, but the documentation for the drivers of arango is quite ambiguous & not well written. It could have been much simpler. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very good choice for most business requirements. It can do everything that traditional SQL does, and much more than that with much more simplicity. You can design your queries very similar to sql. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically, the main difference that it makes is how we relate one entity to other. This is very simple to do in arango using its graph features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. It' easy to install both a single ArangoDB instance and ArangoDB cluster cross different OS, including CentOS, Ubuntu, MacOS and Windows. You could try and test graph database just through several steps.

2. The AQL is easy to learn and understand. The official document about AQL is very detailed. Everyone could learn it just by reading the AQL document.

3. The most important thing is that the AQL for graph traversal is very efficient. For a graph consisting of one hundred thousand nodes, it takes half an hour to query all rings which includes 6 to 12 nodes.

4. ArangoDB is schema free for a big graph. So it's easy to modify the graph structure without considering different problems.

5. ArangoDB support different cluster modes. That means however big your data is ArangoDB could dynamically scale out or in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. The graph display is not as clear as Neo4j. Although the GUI is not so important for a programer, it's a big problem for general customers because a beautiful and clear GUI could be more understandable for them.

2. ArangoDB could consider supporting Cypher. Cypher is easier to understand and many people have learnt it so maybe they don't like to learn so many different query languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use ArangoDB for the vehicle insurance fraud scenario. In that scenario, a group of fraudsters work together to make fake car accidents and claim body injuries and car damages. If we just check or use traditional statistical method to inspect a single car accident, a series of car accidents look normal and independently. It is very hard to recognize the fraudsters by machine learning methods because the fraud sample is rare and it's hard to label different group of fraudsters. However, we modeled all the cases via a graph. Specifically, the claim cases are modeled as nodes and first drivers, third-party drivers, passengers etc are also modeled as nodes. All persons are connected by claim case node via relationship edges. Then we search lots of abnormal rings which is capable of revealing relationship between persons who are acting like perfect strangers.

ArangoDB is so excellent to store and query a graph. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Migrating a project to ArangoDB from a document DB was intimidating at first but with all the tools it comes packing made it much easier. The query language has a pretty shallow learning curve while at the same time equipping you with so much power.

The rich web interface was the most useful for me; it allowed me to play around with data and queries before committing anything to actual implementation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This db is a power house of all no sql possibilities. With an active forum and slack channels, the support provided (even for community users) is great. We had used Neo4j before but it limits a lot of things for its enterprise edition and hence we moved on to Arango and we are indeed happy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1) Amazing feature-rich query language (AQL), subjectively much easier to use if compared to GraphQL

2) Pregel engine with major graph traversal algorithms available out-of-the-box - we were able to remove large piece of homebrew code with it

3) Nice performance at scale, both write and read

4) Inverted Index available in ArangeSearch - lighting fast!

5) Comprehensive admin UI Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1) Slow built-in graph visualization, it makes difficult to explore graphs from admin UI.

2) Need to re-write code when switching from single node to cluster node.

3) Slow analytical queries, e.g. aggregations for entire collection. However it's not the primary case for multi-model databases at all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're using several NoSQL databases it means you probably need multi-model database. Give ArangoDB a try - it's very balanced product in this sense.

If you're looking specifically for graph database with complex queries - most probably you don't have to much candidates in principle. ArangoDB is first-class citizen in this space. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using ArangoDB as our engine for Identity Graph - huge graph connecting users and devices in deterministic and stochastic way.

Major benefit is finally having native graph database working as intended at scale. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I am currently using ArangoDB on my Python project, via python-arango. I am loving the way you can easily use AQL queries on your DB transactions, as well as managing your database and collections. You can also setup a highly available database or a main-failover setup, which can make your backend implementation better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

So many software companies have a “good produce” but have huge gaps somewhere - poor support, steep learning curve, extraordinarily high pricing, ridiculous development base (“Jython”, I’m looking at you!), etc.

ArangoDB is the first product I have used (in 20 years!) that is complete. It is developer-friendly, user-friendly, has amazingly good support, is extremely performant, plays nice in cloud-native land, has built-in clustering, and (last, but NOT least) IT WORKS!

I am continually amazed at how often I am PLEASENTLY surprised by features, performance, or the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there isn’t much to NOT like. The only complaint I’ve had so far is that I had to change my query style to be able to fully utilize clustering. This meant learning, but it works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are building a system that links many databases together to enable IT operations from configuration management to automation to financial reporting. Think “BaceFook for computers.”

Document storage allows us to be flexible in development while the graph powers new insight and allows us to link many sources of information into a web of knowledge (as opposed to a quagmire of misery). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The semi-structured and very extensible document model, combined to most of the assets of a hard RDBMS : indexes, joins… plus a few interesting capacities : fulltext indexation, cluster mode. Also, the very active and helpful developers team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it feels like some features are still lacking or don't give their full potential yet, but the product is constantly evolving and new features appear every month. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Cluster mode doesn't implement all functionalities yet, and is way slower (at least with community edition). While this is totally understandable, it might be disappointing if one expects it to be "magical scaling". The replication is not as good as CouchDB at the moment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our use case is scientific (non-comercial) statistical exploitation of crowdsourced data. Previously using CouchDB, we ran into limitations due to disk space increasing exponentially, and difficulty to perform various complex queries in a reasonable time. ArangoDB allows all that by leveraging most of the powerful concepts of a RDBMS, while keeping a very convenient and extensible semi-sctructured documents orientation. It opens new perspectives for data-mining while keeping a very good read performance thanks to indexes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very flexible that does not force the user to focus only on a single data model.

key/values, documents or graphs in the same database and possibility of using everything simultaneously!

It is very noticeable that its creators have a deep knowledge of different types of databases.

It is very easy to understand the concepts of this database. The query language is very powerful and easy to understand. Extensive documentation that helps you practice and use ArangoDB in the coming hours!

Our projects (accouting, web applications, budgets) are very complex and we need a multi-model approach. In other databases we do not have this opportunity.

This database has a good technical support. ArangoDB regularly organizes webinars and training. The product is well maintained and the company is able to create several upgrades (version) in one year!

ArangoDB is fully ready for the production environment.

It is very nice that the company gives you all the time you need to test this database.

We have never felt pressured by the evaluation period that in the case of ArangoDB is unlimited. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to dislike!

At this time, this database covers all our production project needs.

Honestly and responsibly I would say that this database deserves one of the best positions in the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are interested in NoSQL database but you have the "SQL mind", this is your big chance! ArangoDB will not fail! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Without any doubt, performance. The best NoSQL databases fail to make the joins that ArangoDB does.

In the world of databases is obvious and correct a multimodel approach. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The AQL query language is very easy to use, and powerful at the same time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Because it's still very new and not yet super popular, there is a severe lack of tools and the community is still very small. But that is very likely to improve over time, as the product itself is truly fantastic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Assess the complexity and characteristics of your domain before choosing your datastore.

Every domain has a datastore that best matches its needs, and ArangoDB stands on a very strong position in that front, because it's a multi model database, meaning no matter what your domain looks like, ArangoDB is likely ready to support it well.

There is no one size fits all solution though; you have to carefully analyse your domain before making a decision -- people tend to jump into the trendy product, just to find out it was not designed to solve the problem they have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use, nice admin ui where you can test queries (and explain them) and play with arango, many driver options. Overall a good developer experience. It is under active development and there is a github/slack where the arango team responds to issues. AQL is simple and parallels SQL nicely while offering some of its own special things. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some small bugs and quirks. Have upgraded a few times to get bugfixes. I dislike that there are enterprise only features. (I guess you gotta make money somehow.) I also found that under heavy load I experienced seemingly random errors and that my applications could overload the database, locking it up. The java driver didnt have all the features I wanted, namely a connection health check. One pesky frustration is that when you google stuff from the documentation, the top result is often not the current version of the documentation, and then switching versions on the page brings you to the documentation home page. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Multimodel is nice - arango can be used for different projects with different goals. Also taking advantage of their clustering for redundancy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The database allows you to the ability to literally serve any of your use-case and replace any of your current databases. It can act like a schema-less document store or as a graph database, that too without giving up on RDBMS features like Joins.

The query language AQL is especially very powerful.

Besides, the community is great and helpful! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not anything specific actually, it is actually great.

The performance of RocksDB storage engine is comparatively lower than the standard mmfiles; But that TBH is not a reasonable thing to expect and would be like comparing apples to oranges because that performance is gained at the cost of resources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to retrieve data quickly, give a search feature and show graphs in our applications - efficiently all using a single database i.e. ArangoDB!

Also, my benchmarking against Neo4j showed results very much in favour of ArangoDB (hence our application served much faster). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Javascript. My problem

Web UI is sometimes a little unresponsive but easily fixed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do it. Learn it. Embrace it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Graph, Document, Key Value and HTTP REST/GraphQL. In ONE Package?

Surely they can't all be good?

Performance? Yup. Removed Redis

Storage: Replaced Postgres

Graph: No real competitor (Neo4j runs on a JVM and uses Cypher which is a b s t r a c t)

Pregel Algorithms on Graph. Again, not easy to find a useful

REST Endpoints for data Access and CRUD actions. Foxx. and super fast!

And tying it all together is AQL. A wonderous, modern language that enables really impressive complicated queries and processes to be pushed to the backend. People say its good if you come from a SQL background. I hate SQL but I love programming and it really fits with that concept to me.

All of the above have enabled me to trust and rely on ArangoDB as THE technology to power a complex platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

AQL is rather easy to pick up and feels rather natural. The web interface is perfectly fine. The documentation is comprehensive and the community is absolutely friendly and helpful. It is backed up by a motivated company and the contact to the people over there has always been a pleasure.

The multi-model approach is great and enables us to fulfill the whole of our project needs with just one DB product.

The integration of Foxx Microservices directly into the DB is a nice topping. The balance between open source and enterprise features is at a sweet spot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
