OrientDB becomes Distributed using Hazelcast, Leading Open Source In-Memory Data Grid

Hazelcast Comms November 04, 2013

Elastic Distributed scalability added to OrientDB, a Graph Database that support hybrid Document Database features

Palo Alto, CA – Nov 4, 2013 Hazelcast® (https://hazelcast.com) and Orient Technologies (http://www.orientechnologies.com/) today announced that OrientDB has gained a multi-master replication feature powered by Hazelcast.

Clustering multiple server nodes is the most significant feature of OrientDB 1.6. Databases can be replicated across heterogeneous server nodes in multi-master mode achieving the best of scalability and performance.

“I think one of the added value of OrientDB against all the NoSQL products is the usage of Hazelcast while most of the others use Yahoo ZooKeeper to manage the cluster (discovery, split brain network, etc) and something else for the transport layer.” said Luca Garulli, CEO of Orient Technologies. “With ZooKeeper configuration is a nightmare, while Hazelcast lets you to add OrientDB servers with ZERO configuration. This has been a big advantage for our clients and everything is much more ‘elastic’, specially when deployed on the Cloud. We’ve used Hazelcast not only for the auto-discovery, but also for the transport layer. Thanks to this new architecture all our clients can scale up horizontally by adding new servers without stopping or reconfigure the cluster”.

“We are amazed by the speed with which OrientDB has adopted Hazelcast and we are delighted to see such excellent technologists teaming up with Hazelcast.” said Talip Ozturk, CEO of Hazelcast. “We work hard to make the best open source in-memory data grid on the market and are happy to see it being used in this way.”

Both Hazelcast and Orient Technologies are providing professional open source support to their respective projects under the Apache software license.
