ArangoDB (2.0.6)

ArangoDB is a multi-purpose, open-source database with flexible data models for documents, graphs, and key-values. Build high performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript/Ruby extensions. Use ACID transaction if you require them. Scale horizontally and vertically with a few mouse clicks.

It focuses on durability of the data taking advantage of new technologies like SSD, support for graph and geo algorithms needed in social networks, ease of use for the developer and minimal effort to operate for the administrator. The design goals are described here.

The ArangoDB package consists of a server, a separate shell, which allows you to administrate the server, and a set of client APIs (or sometimes called drivers) for various languages including the Big-P (PHP, Python, Perl) and Ruby.
