September Meetup: Graph Database basics

At our monthly meetup of September, we had a presentation from +Marc Edem who gives us some basics fondamentals on graph database and how it works.

Based on a NoSQL thechnology like Google Big Tables, or Dynamo of Amazon, Graph database has a pure advantage toward common relational database which is its time performance and the speed of execution of queries on really big data.

An example is where normal relational database query can take up to 2000 ms to execute, graph database  need only 2ms which is extremely fast compared to the relational databse.

Graph Database is developped by +Neo4j (Neo Technology), which CEO is +Emil Eifrem .
More details about Graph Database can be found on their website Neo4j.
