Neo4j vs Blazegraph: What are the differences?

Neo4j: The world’s leading Graph Database. Neo4j stores data in nodes connected by directed, typed relationships with properties on both, also known as a Property Graph. It is a high performance graph store with all the features expected of a mature and robust database, like a friendly query language and ACID transactions; Blazegraph: An ultra-high performance database for big graphs offering both Semantic Web and Graph Database. It is a fully open-source high-performance graph database supporting the RDF data model and RDR. It operates as an embedded database or over a client/server REST API.

Neo4j and Blazegraph can be primarily classified as "Graph Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by Neo4j are:

  • intuitive, using a graph model for data representation
  • reliable, with full ACID transactions
  • durable and fast, using a custom disk-based, native storage engine

On the other hand, Blazegraph provides the following key features:

  • High Performance Native graph database
  • Blueprints API or RDF/SPARQL
  • Single machine data storage to ~50B triples/quads (RWStore)

Neo4j is an open source tool with 6.75K GitHub stars and 1.65K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Neo4j's open source repository on GitHub.

    What are some alternatives to Blazegraph and Neo4j?
    Dgraph
    Dgraph's goal is to provide Google production level scale and throughput, with low enough latency to be serving real time user queries, over terabytes of structured data. Dgraph supports GraphQL-like query syntax, and responds in JSON and Protocol Buffers over GRPC and HTTP.
    Titan
    Titan is a scalable graph database optimized for storing and querying graphs containing hundreds of billions of vertices and edges distributed across a multi-machine cluster. Titan is a transactional database that can support thousands of concurrent users executing complex graph traversals in real time.
    Cayley
    Cayley is an open-source graph inspired by the graph database behind Freebase and Google's Knowledge Graph. Its goal is to be a part of the developer's toolbox where Linked Data and graph-shaped data (semantic webs, social networks, etc) in general are concerned.
    JanusGraph
    It is a scalable graph database optimized for storing and querying graphs containing hundreds of billions of vertices and edges distributed across a multi-machine cluster. It is a transactional database that can support thousands of concurrent users executing complex graph traversals in real time.
    RedisGraph
    RedisGraph is a graph database developed from scratch on top of Redis, using the new Redis Modules API to extend Redis with new commands and capabilities. Its main features include: - Simple, fast indexing and querying - Data stored in RAM, using memory-efficient custom data structures - On disk persistence - Tabular result sets - Simple and popular graph query language (Cypher) - Data Filtering, Aggregation and ordering

    Review ofNeo4jNeo4j

    Neo4j is a great graph database, but it's also a great tool for any application in general. The data model is easy to figure out and is flexible to use as your application changes in the early stages. Further, there are constraints you can add to get data consistency once you have a firm data model. The built in admin tool makes it easy to review the data, see how your application is being used, and has a great query plan visualizer for when you want to optimize for performance.

    Graph database

    To be evaluated

    • + Leading Graph DB provider, large community
    • + Rich querying language
    • + Tools to visualise and interact visually with results

    Possible alternative to triple store.

    Questions:

    • does it support full text search?
    • does it support some sort of inference or derived relationships (e.g. transitivity, symmetry)?

    - does it support faceted search?
