This paper discusses SAP OrientDB, an open source, multi-model database with extended property graph database capabilities. Although it is an open source offering, there is an Enterprise Edition available (with a 30-day free trial) that includes additional features such as monitoring, auditing, incremental backups, multi-data centres, and so on. Both on-premises and cloud-based deployment options are available, the latter including AWS and Microsoft Azure, and it is also suitable for running on the edge, although to do so you may need to strip out some of the less essential features. The product is targeted at both operational and hybrid operational/analytic environments, and it has enjoyed considerable success with third party technology companies embedding its database into their products.
