I have always thought Datomic was interesting.  Datomic Cloudis even more interesting.  Datomic Cloud is even more interesting on Amazon Web Services.

See this Introduction to Datomic video.

Here is a list of reasons why I find Datomic so interesting:

  1. Datomic is a fact database, organized similar to EAV (entity, attribute, value) or RDF.
  2. Datomic has an integrated rules engine, datalog.  See this video.
  3. You can never delete facts from the database.  You can mark them deleted, but you cannot make facts go away.  That means excellent audit trail.
