ArangoDB vs Azure Cosmos DB: What are the differences?

What is ArangoDB? A distributed open-source database with a flexible data model for documents, graphs, and key-values. A distributed free and open-source database with a flexible data model for documents, graphs, and key-values. Build high performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions.

What is Azure Cosmos DB? A fully-managed, globally distributed NoSQL database service. Azure DocumentDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service built for fast and predictable performance, high availability, elastic scaling, global distribution, and ease of development.

ArangoDB belongs to "Databases" category of the tech stack, while Azure Cosmos DB can be primarily classified under "NoSQL Database as a Service".

Some of the features offered by ArangoDB are:

  • multi-model nosql db
  • acid
  • transactions

On the other hand, Azure Cosmos DB provides the following key features:

  • Fully managed with 99.99% Availability SLA
  • Elastically and highly scalable (both throughput and storage)
  • Predictable low latency: <10ms @ P99 reads and <15ms @ P99 fully-indexed writes

"Grahps and documents in one DB" is the primary reason why developers consider ArangoDB over the competitors, whereas "Best-of-breed NoSQL features" was stated as the key factor in picking Azure Cosmos DB.

ArangoDB is an open source tool with 8.22K GitHub stars and 576 GitHub forks. Here's a link to ArangoDB's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Azure Cosmos DB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 24 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to ArangoDB, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to ArangoDB and Azure Cosmos DB?
Neo4j
Neo4j stores data in nodes connected by directed, typed relationships with properties on both, also known as a Property Graph. It is a high performance graph store with all the features expected of a mature and robust database, like a friendly query language and ACID transactions.
MongoDB
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
OrientDB
It is an open source NoSQL database management system written in Java. It is a Multi-model database, supporting graph, document, key/value, and object models, but the relationships are managed as in graph databases with direct connections between records.
Cassandra
Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
