- Scale is: redundancy, increased write load, increased read load, increased data size.
- Neo4j’s scalability package is known as High Availability (or HA).
- In every Neo4j HA cluster, the full graph is replicated to each instance of the cluster.
- The read capacity of each HA cluster increases linearly with the number of servers.
- Neo4j can commit tens of thousands of writes per second while maintaining fully ACID transactions.
- At scale, Neo4j best practices include online backups, reporting instances, data locality and disaster recovery.
