What do you like best?

I liked that OrientDB did everything - Graph Db, Key based, Document based. Plus it had elastic search built in. Additionally, the studio has a graphical user interface to the graph DB itself. This helped to visually understand how things were working when you saved objects and created connections. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The documentation is horrible

features of database that are not documented and I found them on forums

DB seems very powerful but the documentation is bad

Wish I didn't need a java based server to run orientdb

It can be expensive to host OrientDB Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you can understand documentation. Try to understand the documentation well and understand how to query the graph based DB in multiple ways which can be very powerful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

connecting people in a social network. Speed and ease to do everything in one DB.

I was able to create a social network which need connections tracked, geolocation search, and text search. Therefore ORIENTDB fit all the criteria and I experimented with it. The document structure was used to store information on users and their posts. The graph based DB was used to store connection between users and their post's connections to other posts based on likeness. I used the apache search to search text within users' posts which was done to find likeness and then connect them up using the the Graph DB structure. I also integrated socketio to provide a realtime response in my web application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's support for graph db , document store and key value store make it quite versatile . Other things like being free software, saves a lot of money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As it is new, so community support is not that smooth. Have very few question and answers on online forums like stack overflow. Because of this, it is relatively difficult to debug issues. Current release cycles and critical patches are too frequent. Hence, to remain up to date, version upgradation is almost necessary every time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If someone is looking for multipurpose use, then this is best. It is quite good in performance too. It's cost effective and you can use it's community version in production too. Some of the issues you have to figure out yourself as community support is not that robust.

Based on my personal experience as well as online recommendations, i would highly recomment it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I am using it for fraud detection.

Lots of benefits as compared to enterprise Neo4j like it's free, support of SQL like query, better performance on incremental write after adding say millions of nodes, clustering support.

Some of the problems which I faced:

There are frequent releases and patches which again makes manageability difficult. Once, after cluster was shutdown and upon it's restart, i started replica first and the data of replica was replicated across master. So, ideally here replica also works as master. I had data backup so didn't face much issues Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Few Things I would like to mention one by one

1. Links: OrientDB supports links which makes referencing other classes very easy, THe kind of vast support for links in the form of a list and as singular, it helps to shorthand a lot of queries. I was trying to look for the same possibilities with Cosmos DB of Azure (which is claimed to be graph DB but I doubt it) and it doents even comes close.

2. Maps and unstructured data like json: I have worked with many SQL and NoSQL DBs but I think orientDB integrates very well with json kind of structure and maps.

3. Handling of large data: OrientDB handles large data very easily. There were times when some of the queries returned records in lacs (more than 100 k), but it was never a problem performance wise Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. Unnecessary clutter returned with response: So I used orient DB with Node JS and its driver is fairly good. But it fails miserable when there is any kind of circular dependency. It attaches a lot of unnecessery data to records, we had to write a samll utility to remove unnecessery clutter from returned data. For example for links, it sometimes returned the link with full data of the refenved claass (same for another refence, so it will create a chain or tree of references if all the subsequent records have any links in them)

2.Migration failures: It is claimed by orientDB that in the migration if we set certain parameters, it will keep the original RIDs of records as it is. But this is not the case. Certainly with the database where lot of create deletion operations happened and rids are something like (35:104, 15:204) RIDs are not persisted after migration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We are working on a project to solve few problems encountered by Pharma companies while doing the process of approval of the medicines. We created a solution to track the documentation to support versioning and changes tracking with some AI and machine learning to add on the usability. We needed a database which should support vast references and noSQL data structure. OrientDB proved very helpful in these scenarios. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The GUI of orientDB is very practical and user-friendly, it is comparable to other competitors their UI and allows of easy management of indexes, relations and nodes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The small community, lack of professional tools and performance. Their is no easy way to manage the community version of OrientDB and the enterprise edition is a big step us in price. Great ways to resolve this would be scalable cloud offerings which allow you to test OrientDB in a managed fashion to later on decide for yourself if the step to the Enterprise edition is necessary for yourself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a good look at other GraphDB solutions, Neo4J is a bigger player and great reasons for this are the more complete toolset and larger amount of use case/community. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The fact that is was free comparing to other market solutions and that it had plenty of documentation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Did not find anything i disliked during my use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the fact it is free compared to other platforms and that the community is growing. I was doing a PoC for a cache and I found the learning curve very smooth and found it also easy to explain to third parties who were expecting results so i found no reason to be afraid to recommend this as a alternate solution to your client.

What do you dislike?

Worst Studio / IDE

No proper documentation,

As a dump increases it's hard to get results,

its misery while working through large data,

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

As we handling numerous classes / vertex and unstructured data, we can able to connect those data initially and able to see the connectivity through traversing. Its hard to manipulate and query unstructured data in Relational Database. its a good choice for business to have more options in community edition compared to other Graph databases but its hard for developer.

What do you like best?

La principal característica que encontré como usuario y desde la perspectiva del benchmarking fue que es incrustable. Simplemente puedo usar la base de datos incluyendo un tarro y actualizarlo cuando sea necesario. No hay mash-ups o complicaciones de tener que mantener explícitamente el servidor iniciado para la base de datos. Además de haber implementado la pila Tinkerpop, que es el estándar para las APIs de gráficos, hay poco tiempo de transición entre el uso de otras bases de datos gráficas y OrientDB. Y, por supuesto, la transición de SQL a Graph se vuelve simple ya que soporta la sintaxis basada en SQL. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Muchas veces cuando los nodos se caen (usando una configuración distribuida), hay estados inconsistentes que quedan sueltos. La base de datos tiene que ser desplegada de nuevo. También cuando escalé mi clúster tuve que mover manualmente todos los datos del clúster más pequeño al más grande. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es, sin duda, la idea más novedosa para combinar el almacenamiento orientado a documentos y las funcionalidades gráficas. Definitivamente lo recomendaría a un usuario que quisiera desplegar fácilmente una base de datos gráfica/base de datos documental a través del código. También es extremadamente rápido en la pequeña cantidad de datos, pero para gráficos muy grandes en la configuración distribuida demostró lo contrario, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

He estado tratando de comparar nuestro marco analítico de gráficos con varias bases de datos de gráficos como Titan/OrientDB/Neo4j. Pero siendo la nuestra una base de datos de gráficos distribuida y usando gráficos que tienen miles de millones de nodos y realizando operaciones OLAP y OLTP sobre ellos, encontramos que Titan escala y funciona mejor que OrientDB cuando se trata de miles de millones de nodos en un entorno distribuido.

What do you like best?

1. Elaborated documents for a beginner without any graph background knowledge to grasp basic graph theory and orientdb practice.

2. Build on Java platform, which is our company's main dev language as well, it's too easy to spend much time customizing various implementation as we demand. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The infrastructural graph engine/model can't support too much online real-time concurrency(OLTP), especially when facing to plenty of edges concurrency maintenance on super node.

As of now, we can realize real-time in other way, it'll be just perfect if someday orientdb support high-concurrency well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although orientdb is still not the top1 graphdb in market, its rising trend cannot be ignored. It has proved that the customers and market admits its abilities and features, whatever multi-model, or ease of use, or powerful graph traverse engine, or distributed architecture. Almost every element with regards to internet technologies is introduced in. What are you waiting for? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Since we're a financial company, the scenarios we leverage orientdb to satisfy are:

1. anti-fraud, based on transactions, payment, orders, GPS, phone call, etc. Actually this is similar and applied to any social network model.

2. RPC invoke chain, collecting rpc invoke records into orientdb, analyzing the bottlenecks or design issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We’re a consultancy company who helps clients adopt Big Data technologies, and Graph is increasingly becoming an important aspect of the data-stack; especially for complex and connected data-sets such social network applications and analysis. We have a number of customers using Orient with 50-million + node/relationship workloads. We’ve worked with all the major Graph platforms and Orient is currently our preferred choice. Performance is great and the query language, being a hybrid of standard SQL & Graph means adoption is easier than if using Gremlin or Cypher, both of which look great at first but query complexity can escalate rapidly. Orient’s mix works in practice. Another feature we like is the ability to query it via standard JDBC connections, which means standard tools such as DB Visualizer work; which just make using it more pleasurable than rivals. We develop in Java, and their APIs are rock solid. Pricing is also more reasonable that rivals; making horizontal distribution more practical. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the Orient Studio forgets the visualisation settings for the Graph so all the lovely setup work you’ve done to make it look pretty gets lost. Sort it out Orient! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This is an easy to install DB.

The fact that it's SQL is very close to relational SQL makes it easy to use to most developers.

The results from querys are extremely fast.

Graph and Document characteristics combined make this DB very unique.

Embeded maps are extremely useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Drivers are a down side in this datababse. Connector drivers should be improved - but this should not stop you from choosing this DB.

OrientDB's documentation is not always up to date.

There is no import button in Orient Studio. Imports must be run manually.

Changing attribute names can cause problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The friendliness and support from the staff, even in the OSS side of the dev process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The database needs better driver support. The full text search is good, but it would be great, if ODB supported Elasticsearch natively, like Titan does. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Version 3 is going to be the "final" version. The ODB team have gathered a ton of experience over versions 1 and 2. They will be culminating this knowledge and experience in version 3. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The prospect of having polyglot persistence is a huge benefit, since it can cover so many use cases. This is the magic of ODB. But, at the same time, it could be its Achiles heel, due to the complexity. Getting that to "simple" will be the big challenge, which I hope will happen in version 3. Still, the database is quite amazing to use, even though it has its teething pains. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The thing I like the most of OrientDB is the rapidness of the development team.

The most of the request and questions are replied almost instantly. When I started using the software it was quite buggy, but collaborating with the team was really the plus to make the software better and the usage simpler. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The software is rapidly evolving and the features comes and goes. The development process should be more predictable and new features should be added only if necessary.

At least the previous version should be supported. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please consider that using a new language (also if inspired to SQL) will be a cost for your developers.

Consider also the cost of following the software evolution since many features are constantly added and to use Orient in a smart way you should always be updated on his news. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I use Orient in embedded mode as main database for a web application with hundred of users.

The best benefit was obtained for graph query performances. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
