What is Beam? A Distributed Knowledge Graph Store. A distributed knowledge graph store. Knowledge graphs are suitable for modeling data that is highly interconnected by many types of relationships, like encyclopedic information about the world.
What is Graph Engine? RAM Store + Computation Engine + Graph Model (by Microsoft). The distributed RAM store provides a globally addressable high-performance key-value store over a cluster of machines. Through the RAM store, GE enables the fast random data access power over a large distributed data set.
Beam and Graph Engine can be primarily classified as "Graph Databases" tools.
Beam and Graph Engine are both open source tools. It seems that Graph Engine with 1.75K GitHub stars and 249 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Beam with 1.37K GitHub stars and 64 GitHub forks.
