Neo4j AuraDS overview

AuraDS is the fully managed version of Neo4j Graph Data Science.

AuraDS instances:

  • are automatically upgraded and patched;

  • can be seamlessly scaled up or down;

  • can be paused to reduce costs.


AuraDS offers the AuraDS Professional and AuraDS Enterprise subscription plans. The full list of features for each plan is available on the Neo4j Pricing page.

Updates and upgrades

AuraDS updates and upgrades are handled by the platform, and as such do not require user intervention. Security patches and new versions of GDS and Neo4j are installed within short time windows during which the affected instances are unavailable.

The operations are non-destructive, so graph projections, models, and data present on an instance are not affected. No operation is applied until all the running GDS algorithms have completed.


For a breakdown of the support offered across plan types as well as the support holiday schedule, see the Aura Support page.

Additionally, you can access the Aura Status page to check the current operational status of Aura and subscribe to updates.
