What Are Some Good MapReduce Implementations for Graphs?

In case you were wondering how some problems Hadoop and MapReduce are not best at solving, there’s a great Q&A on Quora.com:

MapReduce is good at distributed computing, but not for graph algorithms. Is there a general-use, highly-distributed open source graph framework? I’m especially interested in hearing about in-practice use cases, and how good/bad they were.

Ankur Dave’s answer is quite compehensive, listing 5 specialized solutions and 3 generic frameworks:

  • Giraph
  • GraphLab
  • Phoebus
  • Golden Orb
  • Signal/Collect
  • Spark
  • Piccolo
  • HaLoop

I was not aware of all these solutions, so more to read for me.
