ArangoDB vs InfluxDB: What are the differences?

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; InfluxDB: An open-source distributed time series database with no external dependencies. InfluxDB is a scalable datastore for metrics, events, and real-time analytics. It has a built-in HTTP API so you don't have to write any server side code to get up and running InfluxDB is designed to be scalable, simple to install and manage, and fast to get data in and out..

ArangoDB and InfluxDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by ArangoDB are:

  • multi-model nosql db
  • acid
  • transactions

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

  • Time-Centric Functions
  • Scalable Metrics
  • Events

"Grahps and documents in one DB" is the top reason why over 24 developers like ArangoDB, while over 36 developers mention "Time-series data analysis" as the leading cause for choosing InfluxDB.

ArangoDB and InfluxDB are both open source tools. InfluxDB with 16.7K GitHub stars and 2.38K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ArangoDB with 8.22K GitHub stars and 576 GitHub forks.

SimpleCrypto, Impossible Software, and capscale are some of the popular companies that use InfluxDB, whereas ArangoDB is used by AresRPG, Stepsize, and Brainhub. InfluxDB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 119 company stacks & 39 developers stacks; compared to ArangoDB, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to ArangoDB and InfluxDB?
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.

Influx doesn't currently natively support horizontal distribution. Hard to recommend it until they implement that.

We use InfluxDB as a store for our data that gets fed into Grafana. It's ideal for this as it's a lightweight storage engine that can be modified on the fly by scripts without having to log into the server itself and manage tables. The HTTP API also makes it ideal for integrating with frontend services.
