ArangoDB vs Cayley: What are the differences?

Developers describe ArangoDB as "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. On the other hand, Cayley is detailed as "An open-source graph database". Cayley is an open-source graph inspired by the graph database behind Freebase and Google's Knowledge Graph. Its goal is to be a part of the developer's toolbox where Linked Data and graph-shaped data (semantic webs, social networks, etc) in general are concerned.

ArangoDB and Cayley are primarily classified as "Databases" and "Graph Databases" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by ArangoDB are:

  • multi-model nosql db
  • acid
  • transactions

On the other hand, Cayley provides the following key features:

  • Written in Go
  • Easy to get running (3 or 4 commands, below)
  • RESTful API

"Grahps and documents in one DB" is the top reason why over 24 developers like ArangoDB, while over 4 developers mention "Full open source" as the leading cause for choosing Cayley.

        What are some alternatives to ArangoDB and Cayley?
        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.
