Objectivity, Inc., a leading provider of data management solutions, recently announced that its leading-edge distributed graph database product for the enterprise, InfiniteGraph, is now available in beta. Developed by Objectivity’s new InfiniteGraph business unit, the InfiniteGraph distributed database technology and developer application programming interface (API) were created to help organizations obtain real-time answers from deep analysis of complex, multi-dimensional relationships that live within their mission-critical data.
InfiniteGraph’s database and API has been designed to make it easy for developers to exceed the highest level of graph computing requirements and to future-proof applications that may need to scale significantly in search of billions of connections and relationships in massive volumes of complex data. Traditional database systems often require months of extra development, resource intensive customized code, and costly middleware layers to try and store and find connections in their disparate data systems. In comparison, InfiniteGraph represents the next-generation of graph database technology that provides developers with the tools to support the ultimate combination of simplicity and scalability, enabling organizations to find, store and exploit the relationships hidden in their data at any time.
"The InfiniteGraph solution will significantly reduce the technical barriers to advanced relationship analysis, allowing organizations to utilize their complex and distributed data in near real-time, and on virtually any distributed or cloud-based computing platform," said Darren Wood, chief developer for the InfiniteGraph team. “InfiniteGraph also supports the “NoSQL” (or “Not-Only-SQL”) community, which seeks to promote the best solutions for various problem sets, which cannot be satisfied by traditional SQL-based technologies.”
InfiniteGraph’s beta period will last approximately six weeks, concluding with the general release of the product in mid-July. During the beta period, the developer community is encouraged to visit the InfiniteGraph web site and participate in the beta program, adding to the public discussions and providing input that will further the development of the product. The company will also be engaged with the InfiniteGraph community through various social media channels including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
“InfiniteGraph has been designed to exceed the technical and business requirements for a wide range of audiences and end-users -- from individual developers and emerging startups, to the largest enterprise and government entities imaginable.” said Jay Jarrell, president and CEO of Objectivity. “We’re offering a public beta program to give the entire developer community and graph ecosystem the opportunity to contribute to a product that addresses their demands for distributed and highly scalable graph processing solutions.”
The InfiniteGraph distributed graph database will provide a future-proof solution for organizations seeking to navigate through the volumes of data they collect every second to identify complex relationships and connections. The technology is highly flexible and supports a wide range of usage and deployment options, whether as the primary database management system, or as an enhancing extension to existing relational infrastructures, map reduce and batch processing layers. InfiniteGraph was also designed to require virtually zero administration, so whether it is deployed in a corporate data center, globally distributed cloud platforms, or even as an embedded data component within countless sensors and other devices, InfiniteGraph supports the most demanding requirements in applications and systems that simply must work all the time.
The InfiniteGraph API will simplify the way that developers create sophisticated, next-generation solutions. These next-generation platforms and applications will empower organizations involved in areas including social networking, business intelligence, scientific research and national security to get instant answers and information from vast amounts of highly complex and often unstructured data.
"The next generation of data management solutions include graph databases, such as InfiniteGraph, which are becoming very significant in several areas, particularly those related to complex relationship analysis." says Carl Olofson, research vice president of Database Management and Data Integration software research at IDC. "Objectivity's early entry in this space with the InfiniteGraph solution is sure to garner a great deal of attention from the NoSQL and graph database communities."
Following the InfiniteGraph beta program, the company plans to offer several options for licensing and support, including the ability for qualified startups and new businesses to use InfiniteGraph completely free in their deployments.
