The Native Graph Database for Today’s Connected Applications

Learn More

Unlike other databases, Neo4j connects data as it is stored, enabling it to traverse connections orders-of-magnitude faster.

What Is Neo4j?

Neo4j is a highly scalable native graph database, purpose-built to leverage not only data but also data relationships.

Using Neo4j, developers build intelligent applications that traverse today's large, interconnected datasets in real time. Powered by a native graph storage and processing engine, Neo4j delivers an intuitive, flexible and secure database for unique, actionable insights.

Why Neo4j?


The Neo4j native graph database delivers consistent, real-time performance for multi-hop queries on large, interconnected datasets.

“We found Neo4j to be literally thousands of times faster than our prior MySQL solution, with queries that require 10-100 times less code.”

High Availability

Raft-based Causal Clustering, rolling upgrades, hot backups and more. Built for continuous 24x7, five-nines operation.

“As the current market leader in graph databases, and with enterprise features for scalability and availability, Neo4j is the right choice.”


Neo4j’s versatile property graph model makes it easy to fluidly evolve your solution as business requirements change.

“With Neo4j it's really easy to build on top of already existing nodes, already existing relationships, already existing properties.”


Enterprise security features you expect: LDAP/Directory services, role-based access control, security logging and more.

“If you aren’t using Neo4j, I encourage you to set up a proof of concept; it’s an amazing technology.”

Developer Friendly

Neo4j includes powerful tools to help you efficiently write, profile and debug queries as well as visualize and navigate your data.

“Cypher is simply amazing. The power of the language makes things possible that we would otherwise not have considered.”


Neo4j scales with your data, minimizing cost and hardware while maximizing performance across graph datasets.

“Our full dataset size is now around 40 GB, down from 50 TB of data that we had stored in Cassandra.”
