What is 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.

What is Graph Engine?

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.

What is Neo4j?

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.

What are some alternatives to Cayley, Graph Engine, and Neo4j?
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.
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.
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
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.

Reviews of Cayley, Graph Engine, and Neo4j

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.


  • 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?
