Neo4j Graph Data Platform

Blazing-Fast Graph,
Petabyte Scale

With proven trillion+ entity performance, developers, data scientists, and enterprises rely on Neo4j as the top choice for high-performance, scalable analytics, intelligent app development, and advanced AI/ML pipelines.

The Graph Data Platform for Today's Intelligent Applications

Powered by a native graph database, Neo4j stores and manages data in its more natural, connected state, maintaining data relationships that deliver lightning-fast queries, deeper context for analytics, and a pain-free modifiable data model.

The Graph Technology Leader

Uncompromised Performance, Reliability, and Integrity

The creator and leader of the graph database category, Neo4j continues to expand the limits of graph technology, helping empower the largest active community of 220,000 developers, data scientists, and architects who are working to solve the world's most complex and valuable data problems.


Revealing Richer Context to Drive Deeper Insights

Analysts and data scientists can incorporate network structures to infer meaning, increase ML accuracy, and drive contextual AI – making better predictions with the data they already have.

Neo4j is fueled by our vast, production-ready algorithm library and advanced, groundbreaking machine learning workflows not found anywhere else.

Cypher: The graph Query Language

No More Complex Joins

Cypher is a powerful, intuitive, graph-optimized query language that understands, and takes advantage of, data connections. It’s user-friendly, easy to learn, and follows connections – in any direction – to reveal previously unknown relationships and clusters.

When trying to find patterns or insights within data, Cypher queries are much simpler and easier to write than massive SQL joins. Since Neo4j doesn’t have tables, there are no joins to worry about. Compare the Cypher query at the left with its equivalent in SQL.

MATCH (p:Product)-[:CATEGORY]->(l:ProductCategory)-[:PARENT*0..]->(:ProductCategory {name:"Dairy Products"})
SELECT p.ProductName
FROM Product AS p
JOIN ProductCategory pc ON (p.CategoryID = pc.CategoryID AND pc.CategoryName = "Dairy Products")

JOIN ProductCategory pc1 ON (p.CategoryID = pc1.CategoryID)
JOIN ProductCategory pc2 ON (pc1.ParentID = pc2.CategoryID AND pc2.CategoryName = "Dairy Products")

JOIN ProductCategory pc3 ON (p.CategoryID = pc3.CategoryID)
JOIN ProductCategory pc4 ON (pc3.ParentID = pc4.CategoryID)
JOIN ProductCategory pc5 ON (pc4.ParentID = pc5.CategoryID AND pc5.CategoryName = "Dairy Products");

Use Your Favorite Programming Languages

We aim to make the Neo4j experience fast, natural, and fun for developers. Neo4j supports GraphQL and drivers for .Net, Java, Node.js, Python, and more. Our community of contributors provide many more drivers, including PHP, Ruby, R, Erlang, and Clojure.
