Hey, what’s up? This time we’re going to talk about databases. Specifically about OrientDB. This is a NoSQL database manager made in java focused on combining the model of documents and graphs to make robust applications without the need to have more than one data manager. OrientDB handles 2 APIs, graphics and documents, as far as graphics are concerned, it uses documents to create its nodes. On the other hand, for documents, it uses keys and objects to store data. It also includes interesting features to the document model, such as the ability to create links to other documents and lists. It is also possible to define the rigidity of the model, giving the option to choose mandatory fields. This database manager is a good option for developers. For that reason, let’s see how to install OrientDB on Windows 10.
