Short Description
OrientDB is a Multi-Model Open Source NoSQL DBMS
Full Description


This repository is used to create an OrientDB Docker image. This image is based on Phusion Baseimage to provide base OS and supervision support.

Running orientdb

The docker image contains a unconfigured orientdb installation and for running it you need to provide your own config folder from which OrientDB will read its startup settings. To get an initial set of configurations from this setup, you can do something like the following:

# Run the container stock with no volumes mounted
docker run --name orientdb -d broadinstitute/orientdb:latest
# Go to the path that will eventually hold your configs
# Copy the config directory from the stock container
docker cp orientdb:/opt/orientdb/config .
# Move all the files from that local "config" directory up a level
mv config/* .
# Remove the temporary "config" directory
rmdir config

The directory at $CONFIG_PATH should now have a copy of the stock config files that you can now edit to suit your own needs. To start OrientDB using volume mounts to keep your data safe outside the container, run:

docker run --name orientdb -d \
  -v $CONFIG_PATH:/opt/orientdb/config \
  -v $DATABASES_PATH:/opt/orientdb/databases \
  -v $BACKUP_PATH:/opt/orientdb/backup \
  -p 2424 -p 2480 broadinstitute/orientdb:latest

The same applies for the databases folder which if local to the running container would go away as soon as it died/you killed it.

The backup folder only needs to be mapped if you activate that setting on your OrientDB configuration file.

Included in this repository is also a docker-compose.yml file for use with Docker Compose that will make running the container much easier.

Running the orientdb console

docker run --rm -it \
  -v $CONFIG_PATH:/opt/orientdb/config \
  -v $DATABASES_PATH:/opt/orientdb/databases \
  -v $BACKUP_PATH:/opt/orientdb/backup \
  broadinstitute/orientdb:latest \

or, if you already have OrientDB running with the correct volume mounts, etc. (assumed to be named orientdb in this example) and just want to run the console from the running container:

docker exec -it \
  orientdb \
