Neo4j Fabric: Scaling out is not only distributing data

00GeneralTags:

Neo4j, Inc. is the well-known vendor of the Neo4j Graph Database, which solely supports the property graph model with graphs of previously limited size (single server, replicated).

In early 2020, Neo4j finally released its 4.0 version which promises “unlimited scalability” by the new feature Neo4j Fabric. While the marketing claim of “scalability” is true seen from a very simplistic perspective, developers and their teams should keep a few things in mind – most importantly: True horizontal scalability with graph data is not achieved by just allowing distributing data to different machines.

Time traveling with graph databases

01GeneralTags:

Graph databases are often used to analyze relations within highly interconnected datasets. Social networks, recommendation engines, corporate hierarchies, fraud detection or querying a bill of materials are common use cases. But these datasets change over time and you as a developer or data scientist may want to time travel and analyze these changes.

While ArangoDB may not come with built-in support for managing the revision history of graph data, we’ll show in this article how to manage it in a performant manner for some general classes of graphs. Best of all, this won’t require any groundbreaking new ideas. We’ll simply borrow a few tools and tricks from the persistent data structure literature and adapt them for good performance within ArangoDB. We hope that this will help enable new ways to use everyone’s favorite avocado-fueled datastore, and power some useful applications. Read more
