Commercial Release of InfiniteGraph, the leading distributed and scalable graph database, is now available!

InfiniteGraph™ Enables Development of Next-Gen Applications that Connect the Dots on a Global Scale.

Sunnyvale, CA – August 16, 2011 – InfiniteGraph, the number one commercial, distributed and scalable graph database, is changing the world by enabling a new, cost effective, and efficient way of navigating multiple types of databases for discovery of deeper and more relevant intelligence, enabling real-time decision support.  By being able to understand deeper, more complex relationships within existing and new data, companies can leverage social network analysis and business intelligence to achieve greater efficiencies and competitive advantage. InfiniteGraph can support any number of applications and systems around the analysis of relationships in big data, and does all of this across any number and size of data volumes, in real-time.

Interview with InfiniteGraph's Darren Wood

Here's an interview with Darren Wood, the chief architect of InfiniteGraph the graph database by Objectivity/DB. In the interview Darren provides answers to the following questions:

  • Why do we need new data stores
  • Is InfiniteGraph DB a NoSQL graph database?
  • How does it relate to your Objectivity/DB object database?
  • How do data stores like MongoDB, Voldemort, CouchDB, etc. compare with object-oriented databases?

Webinar: Deploying NoSQL in the Cloud

InfiniteGraph and GoGrid have a free webinar later today (11/08) at 11AM PST. Topics to be discussed include:

  • What is a graph database and why it's a better solution for graph data than SQL
  • Examples of how to scale graph data in the cloud
  • Introduction of the InfiniteGraph Start-Up Program

Graph Databases - What's So Different

Darren Wood, the Chief Architect at InfiniteGraph has a presentation that discusses what makes graph databases unique to their relational counterparts.

One very interesting concept discussed in this presentation is partitioning of graph data. Partitioning of graphs is a very complex and difficult problem namely because the graph is a living entity that is constantly changing i.e. new relationships between nodes.

A NoSQL Evening in Palo Alto

If you are in the Palo Alto area on October 26th, I highly recommend that you try to make it to a NoSQL Evening hosted by Tim Anglade, founder of NoSQL Summer. It has a very impressive list of speakers and should be an exciting evening.

The topics will look back on the origins of the movement & its growing pains, discuss the current technological & business states, as well as look ahead to the opportunities for improvement & expansion.

Current Speaker list includes:

  • InfiniteGraph: Darren Wood — Lead Architect
  • Scality: Erik Julin — Architect
  • Riptano: Jonathan Ellis — Founder
  • GoGrid: Paul Lancaster
  • 10gen: Roger Bodamer — SVP, Products and Engineering
  • Basho: Andy Gross — Vice President of Engineering
  • NorthScale: James Phillips — Co-Founder and Senior Vice President
  • Cloudant: Mike Miller — Co-Founder and Chief Scientist

Scaling the Social Graph in the Cloud with InfiniteGraph

In his presentation at Glue Conference 2010, Darren Wood lead architect of InfiniteGraph discusses "technical challenges to running queries traversing relationships to 4, 5 or more degrees of separation, across extremely large graph datasets in the cloud".

Real-time Relationship Analytics From Large-scale Graph Processing

A couple of weeks ago we had a post from Todd Stavish, Polyglot Persistence in Action. In his next post Todd discusses the features and business applications of his Cassanda/InfiniteGraph application.

Some of the features listed include:

  • Data can be clustered according to vertex/edge proximity
  • Modeling flexibility to support a variety of sources
  • Finding extremely long paths, all paths, unknown paths, or paths of nontrivial or indeterminate length

Some of the business applications that take advantage of these features include:

  • Analyzing high-frequency trading
  • Finding a pattern of relationships for fraud detection
  • Checking which entity has the shortest average connection to a group of others for cyber security (botnet controller)

InfiniteGraph Meets StackOverflow

InfiniteGraph, which just recently release version 1.0, has a post on their blog in which they model the popular Q+A site StackOverflow in a graph database. How do you model Q+A in a graph database?

The vertices in the graph are represented as the Users, Questions and Answers above while the edges are represented as the interactions between them (i.e. a User “Posts” a Question,  an Answer is “For” a Question, a User “Comments On” a Question or Answer).  Simple enough, and like most other social graphs, users seem to be the focal points with the majority of connected edges.

While a deviation from the traditional graph database example of Facebook or Twitter graphs, it's a useful deviation that demonstrates the power and flexibility of the graph database.

Polyglot Persistence in Action

We are seeing today more instances of polyglot programming, where multiple languages exist in harmony. Well we are starting to see the same approach when it come to persistence. Whenever you read posts about what NoSQL is about, one of the common answers is choice. The idea that you choose the right tool for the job. In the end that is what polyglot persistence is all about, chosing one or more persistence frameworks to solve your problems.

So with that said I turn your attention to a recent post by Todd Stavish concerning the very topic of polyglot persistence. Todd has built a sample application that uses both Cassandra and InfiniteGraph with interesting results:

A feature of the hybrid system that was particularly useful was the ability to to learn from the graph and update the original Cassandra store. For instance, learning a shorter path between friends in InfiniteGraph and then updating the columns in Cassandra. For a friend suggestion application, the shortest might be the critical one. However, InfiniteGraph can hop vertexes and edges quickly. Therefore, calculating the longer paths was possible too. Alternative longer path are useful for certain applications like tracking money laundering or other law enforcement needs. In general, I found that I could easily try multi-path analysis, update Cassandra, then run my original queries in Cassandra over the new data

Check out the post and the code Todd's provided
