Twitter’s Success Pulls 23-Year-Old Objectivity into NoSQL

Although it has been around for more than 20 years selling its object database to customers in areas such as intelligence and scientific research, Objectivity thinks the advent of NoSQL and companies trying to emulate Twitter’s ability to determine relationships among disparate pieces of data might finally propel it into the database big time. Much of the world still hasn’t caught onto graph databases and how they might be used, but the mania around social networking is changing that fast. Rather than merely inventorying data to serve an application or to or query for analytic purposes, graph databases help their users determine how one piece of data is related to another. In order to capitalize on the moment, Objectivity created InfiniteGraph, an API that sits atop its flagship Objectivity/DB database and turns it into a fully distributed graph database.
