ArangoDB Weekly #30 | New performance results & O’Reilly article


Maybe you’ve noticed that there was no ArangoDB newsletter last week. So here’s the news of the last two weeks and the announcement that during the summer our NL will be biweekly. 🙂

In the meantime we’ve improved the performance of the shortest path implementation significantly and rerun the Multi-Model performance tests. The article Data modeling with multi-model databases – a use case for multi-model databases – was a huge success on O’Reilly Radar last week, it had the most page views of all Radar articles. It’s worth to read.

Finally, Mesosphere launched it’s SDK and developer program and we are proud to be one of the first partners that integrate into DCOS. Stay tuned, there will be more to come.
