Running OrientDB the First Time

With a master-slave architecture, the master often becomes the bottleneck. With OrientDB, throughput is not limited by a single server. Global throughput is the sum of the throughput of all the servers.

  • First, download and extract OrientDB by selecting the appropriate package provided in our download page(click here for additional installation methods).
  • Start the server by running the or server.bat scripts located in the bin folder.
  • Once OrientDB is running, enter the following URL in a browser window: http://localhost:2480. This is Studio, the most advanced Web tool for Databases.
