FusionDB is a multi-model NoSQL database. FusionDB is currently in alpha and allows you to store and manage millions of XML documents, and then query them using XQuery. FusionDB will soon also allow users to store and query JSON, HTML and Markdown documents. The alpha version of FusionDB exposes both Document and Key/Value models for the user, in the near future this will be complemented with additional Graph and Relational models.
The core of FusionDB is based on state-of-the-art LSM storage designed by Facebook to power their database systems. On top of this, layers provide a full database management system, document database, metadata database, query engine, and various APIs including a REST Server.
FusionDB is aimed at organisations that want a modern NoSQL database, that is both: 1) Open Source, and 2) suitable for enterprise use. The alpha version of FusionDB will most appeal to organisations and developers who want a robust Document database with advanced query facilities, absolute data integrity, and scalable non-stop operation.
Future versions of FusionDB will add further data models to its multi-model line-up, thus targeting more diverse database users by offering powerful cross-model query facilities.
For those organisations already utilising eXist-db, FusionDB is a natural successor. FusionDB is 100% API compatible with eXist-db whilst offering improved scalability, data integrity, and many other new features. eXist-db users can painlessly migrate to FusionDB by simply importing their database backups.
