neo4j: All content tagged as neo4j in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
Before the weekend is over, you could spend a bit of time experimenting with Neo4j. If you are a Ruby person then you’ve probably learned from the persistent graph structures with Ruby/Rails thread that Neo4j with JRuby is the way to go. In the first video Peter Neubauer demonstrates the process of building and deploying a Neo4j-enabled application on Heroku:
Emil Eifrem (Neo4j) in an interview for StartUpBeat answering a question about the competition in the graph databases space (my emphasis):
There’s a lot of movement around alternative databases today and a lot of companies in NOSQL like MongoDB, Couchbase and Cassandra. However, when we’re out in the field and talking to customers, our actual competitors are in-house custom-built solutions.
This answer made me think that:
- Neo4j is the by far the graph databases market leader. And I’m not sure there’s a second place (InfiniteGraph maybe?).
- graph databases are still either unknown in many environments or perceived as niche solutions.
If I’d be a graph database producer, I’d not worry much about my product rank in the market. But I’d definitely be concerned about the current market size and graph databases market penetration in general.

A nice intro to Gremlin, the Groovy-based graph traversal language supporting Neo4j, OrientDB, DEX, RDF Sail, TinkerGraph, and ReXster:
