+## What is AsterixDB?
 
 AsterixDB is a BDMS (Big Data Management System) with a rich feature set that sets it apart
from other Big Data platforms.  Its feature set makes it well-suited to modern needs such
as web data warehousing and social data storage and analysis. AsterixDB has:
 
- * A semistructured NoSQL style data model (ADM) resulting from extending JSON with object
database ideas
- * Two expressive and declarative query languages (SQL++ and AQL) that support a broad range
of queries and analysis over semistructured data
- * A parallel runtime query execution engine, Apache Hyracks, that has been scale-tested
on up to 1000+ cores and 500+ disks
- * Partitioned LSM-based data storage and indexing to support efficient ingestion and management
of semistructured data
- * Support for query access to externally stored data (e.g., data in HDFS) as well as to
data stored natively by AsterixDB
- * A rich set of primitive data types, including spatial and temporal data in addition to
integer, floating point, and textual data
- * Secondary indexing options that include B+ trees, R trees, and inverted keyword (exact
and fuzzy) index types
- * Support for fuzzy and spatial queries as well as for more traditional parametric queries
- * Basic transactional (concurrency and recovery) capabilities akin to those of a NoSQL store
