Neo4j vs Oracle: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Oracle? An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism. Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.

Neo4j can be classified as a tool in the "Graph Databases" category, while Oracle is grouped under "Databases".

"Cypher – graph query language" is the primary reason why developers consider Neo4j over the competitors, whereas "Reliable" was stated as the key factor in picking Oracle.

Neo4j is an open source tool with 6.61K GitHub stars and 1.63K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Neo4j's open source repository on GitHub.

Netflix, ebay, and LinkedIn are some of the popular companies that use Oracle, whereas Neo4j is used by Medium, Movielala, and Hinge. Oracle has a broader approval, being mentioned in 106 company stacks & 92 developers stacks; compared to Neo4j, which is listed in 114 company stacks and 47 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Neo4j and Oracle?
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.
MongoDB
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
Cassandra
Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
OrientDB
It is an open source NoSQL database management system written in Java. It is a Multi-model database, supporting graph, document, key/value, and object models, but the relationships are managed as in graph databases with direct connections between records.
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.

Reviews of Neo4j and Oracle

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?
