Challenging Relationships - How Graph Databases efficiently store, manage and query connected data at scale

Michael Hunger

Graph Databases try to make it easy for developers to leverage huge amounts of connected information for everything from routing to recommendations. Doing that poses a number of challenges on the implementation side. In this talk we want to look at the different storage, query and consistency approaches that are used behind the scenes. We’ll check out current and future solutions used in Neo4j and other graph databases for addressing global consistency, query and storage optimization, indexing and more and see which papers and research database developers take inspirations from.
