Deceipt, the biggest of OrientDB problems

After my counter reply to the OrientDB CEO I wasn't expecting to write any posts soon but the last announcement from Orient Technologies compelled me to write again, so here we go.

On July 9, Orient Technologies announced Our Take on NoSQL DBMS Benchmarks and the New OrientDB Performance Challenge which I invite you to read after you finish reading this blog post. In it Orient accuses an OrientDB "competitor" of not following their suggestions and publishing partial results. This is said without giving details, references, quotes or any evidence leaving the reader to imagine who the competitor is and what has the competitor published. Unfortunately, the announcement doesn't tell the full story and in this post I'll provide the context that led to Orient's announcement and also expose their deceitful marketing, perhaps the worse of many OrientDB problems.
