ArangoDB is joining CNCF to continue its focus on providing a scalable native multi-model database, supporting Graph, Document, and Key-Value data models in the Cloud Native ecosystem.
ArangoDB is a scalable multi-model model database. What does that mean?
You might have already encountered different NoSQL databases specialized for different data models e.g., graph or document databases. However most real-life use-cases actually require a combination of different data models like Single View of Everything, Machine Learning or even Case Management projects to name but a few.
In such scenarios, single data model databases typically require merging data from different databases and often even reimplementing some database logic in the application layer as well as the effort to operate multiple database in a production environment.
