Key Features in ArangoDB

Here is an AQL query that makes use of all those features:

Joins and transactions are key features for flexible, secure data designs,
widely used in relational databases but lacking in many NoSQL products. However,
there is no need to forgo them in ArangoDB. You decide how and when to use joins
and strong consistency guarantees, without sacrificing performance and scalability.

Furthermore, ArangoDB offers a JavaScript framework called Foxx
that is executed in the database server with direct access to the data. Build your
own data-centric microservices with a few lines of code. By extending the HTTP API
with user code written in JavaScript, ArangoDB can be turned into a strict
schema-enforcing persistence engine.
