About Neo4j

  • Fast: As a native graph database, Neo4j is highly optimized for queries on the relationships between your data. Not only is the database fast, but it’s a breeze to write your queries in the Cypher query language.
  • Scalable: Because traversing a graph works in constant-time, you’ll be able to query 100-million-node graphs at nearly the same speed as a thousand-node graph. Our causal clustering technology gives you high availability and global scalability.
  • Reliable: Neo4j is a NoSQL database with ACID compliance. Our customers demand it, and so do we.
