InfiniteGraph: All content tagged as InfiniteGraph in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
The main page of InfiniteGraph, a graph database commercialized by Objectivity, features an interesting comparison of 7 graph databases (InfiniteGraph, Neo4j, AllegroGraph, Titan, FlockDB, Dex, OrientDB) based on 16 criteria: licensing, source, scalability, graph model, schema model, API, query method, platforms, consistency, concurrency (distributed processing), partitioning, extensibility, visualizing tools, storage back end/persistency, language, backup/restore.
Unfortunately the image is almost unreadable, but Peter Karussell has extracted the data in a GoogleDoc spreadsheet embedded below.
A new version of InfiniteGraph, the graph database from Objectivity, was announced today. This release features:
- a plugin framework: Two kinds of plugins are supported. A navigator plugin bundles components that assist in navigation queries, such as result qualifiers, path qualifiers, and guides. The Formatter plugin formats and outputs results of graph queries.
- enhanced IG Visualizer: The advanced Visualizer is now tightly integrated with InfiniteGraph’s Plugin Framework allowing indexing queries for edges, the Formatter plugin framework export GraphML and JSON (built-in) or other user defined plugin formats.
- support for Tinkerpop Blueprints and Gremlin: InfiniteGraph provides a clean integration with Blueprints that is well suited for applications that want to traverse and query graph databases using Gremlin
A bit more details can be found in the InfiniteGraph 2.1 release notes.

As of now 5 hours until we will get Globals, yet another NoSQL database from InterSystems, the Caché object database creators.
Will it be a graph database like the Objectivity spin off InfiniteGraph?
Update: the countdown is at zero for a while and nothing happened.

After being available only on Windows and Linux, now InfiniteGraph has released a version for Mac OS X 64bit. You can get it from ☞ here. As far as I know the guys at InfiniteGraph are working on a friendlier licensing model for developers.
Darren Wood presentation containing a mix of details on distributed graph databases and graph databases use cases:
According to Darren distributed graph databases characteristics are:
- High performance distributed persistence
- Ability to deal with remote data reads (fast)
- Intelligent local cache of subgraphs
- Distributed navigation processing
- Distributed, multi-source concurrent ingest
- Write modes supporting both strict and eventually consistency
You might want to check Marko Rodrigues’ Graph Databases: more than an introduction for a more complete list of possible graph databases use cases.
