ArangoDB White Papers
White Paper Switching from Relational Databases to ArangoDB
This whitepaper compares relational database management systems (RDBMS) to native multi-model database systems — in particular, MySQL and ArangoDB. It describes their key concepts, contrasts both at the end of each section, and concludes by explaining what sets ArangoDB apart.
What is a Multi-model Database and Why Use It?
When it comes to choosing the right technology for a new project, ongoing development or a full system upgrade, it can often be challenging to define the exact right tools that will match set-up criteria from start to finish. Especially, when it comes to choosing the right database.
In this white paper we explain what a multi-model database is, and why and where it makes sense to use it, including a use case based on aircraft fleet management.
Resilience in ArangoDB 3
In this white paper we explain the resilience concept of ArangoDB, which has been dramatically improved for the 3.0 release.
For distributed applications resilience is a crucial feature, in particular for infrastructure applications like databases. When an application runs on multiple machines or cloud instances, the probability of a machine failure is no longer negligible. Thus, if you run distributed applications and you want to sleep well, these applications need to be fault tolerant or resilient.
ArangoDB Cluster Performance
In our white paper we show that an ArangoDB cluster with 640 vCPUs can sustain a write load of 1.1M JSON documents per second which amounts to approximately 1GB of data per second, and that it takes a single short command and around 10 Minutes to deploy such an 80 node cluster using the Mesosphere DCOS.
