What is Neo4j and Top Reasons for Choosing it

What is Neo4j? (Ref:

A graph database uses graph structures for queries with nodes, edges, and properties to represent and store data. In simple words, Neo4j is a native graph database management system built by Neo4j Inc. that can Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations working on a graph data model. It is built from the ground zero level to leverage data as well as data relationships. Neo4j delivers lightning-fast read and write performance, while still protecting data integrity.

Please see a short video here about that

Why choose Neo4j?

  • Easy to learn and use: Neo4j provides a very easy way to represent connected and semi-structured data. It is fast because more connected data is very easy to retrieve and navigate.
  • Flexibility and scalability: Neo4j is a highly scalable database. It provides a simple, powerful and yet flexible data model that can be used according to its applications. It allows higher vertical scaling, improved operational characteristics, simplified tuning and higher concurrency.
  • High performance: Neo4j performs better than relational (SQL) and non-relational (NoSQL) databases. Also, the performance of Neo4j does not drop even when data queries increase exponentially, which happens with relational databases such as MySQL.
  • Responsive, Elastic and Resilient: Neo4j is the fastest graph database on the market, allows scaling up of clusters up/down and the instances recover even if they crash.
