neo4j: All content tagged as neo4j in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
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:

Lorenzo Alberton with an overview of the NoSQL landscape:
NoSQL databases get a lot of press coverage, but there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding them, as in which situations they work better than a Relational Database, and how to choose one over another. This talk will give an overview of the NoSQL landscape and a classification for the different architectural categories, clarifying the base concepts and the terminology, and will provide a comparison of the features, the strengths and the drawbacks of the most popular projects (CouchDB, MongoDB, Riak, Redis, Membase, Neo4j, Cassandra, HBase, Hypertable).
structr is a free, open-source CMS under the GPLv3, written in Java, based on the fantastic NoSQL graph database Neo4j.
By design, structr is modular, distributed and easy to use.
structr is not yet stable, so please be patient and look out for bugs and minor (or even major) pitfalls.
If my memory serves me right, Neo4j started as a library used internally for building content management systems.
