Deploy OrientDB using Ansible-playbook on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS


OrientDB is an open-source NoSQL (Not Only SQL) database management system that combines the features of graph databases, document-oriented databases, and object-oriented databases. It is designed to be a multi-model database, meaning it supports multiple data models, including graph, document, key/value, and object models.


  • Up and running ubuntu 22.04 LTS machine.
  • Basic knowledge in Linux commands.
  • Internet connectivity.
  • Ansible should be installed.

We can use the given link to install Ansible on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Linux machine.

In this post, We will show you how to deploy OrientDB using Ansible-play on ubuntu 22.04 LTS Linux machine.

Step 1: Create an Ansible playbook

To deploy OrientDB using Ansible on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, you can create an Ansible playbook that installs and configures OrientDB. OrientDB is a multi-model, NoSQL database management system.

To create ansible playbook.

sudo nano deploy_orientdb.yml

Past the following ansible tasks.

- name: Deploy OrientDB
  hosts: your_target_servers
  become: true

    - name: Update apt package cache
        update_cache: yes

    - name: Install Java (OpenJDK)
        name: openjdk-11-jre
        state: present

    - name: Download OrientDB
        url: ""
        dest: "/tmp/orientdb.tar.gz"

    - name: Extract OrientDB
        src: "/tmp/orientdb.tar.gz"
        dest: "/opt/"

    - name: Set permissions and ownership
        path: "/opt/orientdb-community-3.1.11"
        mode: "0755"
        owner: "root"
        group: "root"
        recurse: yes

    - name: Configure OrientDB
        src: orientdb-server-config.xml.j2
        dest: "/opt/orientdb-community-3.1.11/config/orientdb-server-config.xml"
        owner: "root"
        group: "root"
        mode: "0644"

    - name: Create OrientDB systemd service
        src: orientdb.service.j2
        dest: "/etc/systemd/system/orientdb.service"
        owner: "root"
        group: "root"
        mode: "0644"

    - name: Start and enable OrientDB service
        name: orientdb
        enabled: yes
        state: started
        daemon_reload: yes

This playbook does the following:

  • Updates the apt package cache and installs OpenJDK 11.
  • Downloads OrientDB from the official website.
  • Extracts the OrientDB tarball to the /opt/ directory.
  • Sets the necessary permissions and ownership for the OrientDB directory.
  • Configures OrientDB using a Jinja2 template for the orientdb-server-config.xml file.
  • Creates a systemd service file for OrientDB using a Jinja2 template.
  • Starts and enables the OrientDB service using the systemd module.

Make sure to replace your_target_servers with the target servers or server group where you want to install OrientDB.

Create an Ansible inventory file (e.g., inventory.ini) with the IP addresses or hostnames of your target servers.

Create Jinja2 templates for OrientDB configuration (orientdb-server-config.xml.j2) and systemd service (orientdb.service.j2). You can customize these templates based on your specific requirements.

Step 2: Run the Ansible playbook

We need to execute the following command to deploy the ansible playbook.

ansible-playbook -i inventory.ini deploy_orientdb.yml

This playbook assumes that you have Ansible installed on your local machine and SSH access to the target servers. Ensure that the servers have internet access to download OrientDB during the installation process. Adjust the version number in the URL to the latest version available on the OrientDB download page.

You can get the docker container deployment using Docker compose , Use the given link.
