Last week a market analysis agency contacted me to ask some questions about OrientDB saying that OrientDB, following its research, has the second position in the worldwide GraphDB market right after Neo4J. Awesome!
But who are the main players of the GraphDB market?
Since each vendor claims, more or less, to be the market leader, what is the real user base? Seems quite hard to gather real data about users and customers directly from vendors.
So I though that one of the best way is to look into the public groups and forums because users, before or after, will subscribe on it because it's the first hand source of information, help and tricks. They can't lie! This document contains some metrics extracted from public sources. Click on the source to see with your eyes about the source I used.
By reading this data Neo4J is, without any doubts, the GraphDB market leader, followed by OrientDB in rapid grow and after a long distance InfiniteGraph and DEX. By reading the web site InfiniteGraph seems to have some real customers, but seems all related to the previous product ObjectivityDB (an ODBMS born more than a decade ago).
