The complexity and amount of data rise. Modern graph databases are designed to handle the complexity but still not for the amount of data. When hitting a certain size of a graph, many dedicated graph databases reach their limits in vertical or, most common, horizontal scalability. In this talk, I’ll provide a brief overview of current approaches and their limits towards scalability. Dealing with complex data in a complex system doesn’t make things easier… but more fun finding a solution. Join me on my journey to handle billions of edges in a graph database.
