Learn about the advantages and challenges of using Neo4j. For example, SQLite is an easy database to use for mobile applications, but will be quickly overwhelmed by multiuser or high-volume applications.
- [Instructor] Building a database…is an exercise in trade-offs.…Like any database, Neo4j is optimized…for some type of data and workloads.…As a result, it's important to understand…where Neo4j fits into the database ecosystem…by discussing some strengths and weaknesses of Neo4j.…Let's start by taking a look at what Neo4j is good at.…As a graph database,…Neo4j is optimized for working with complex data.…When we say complex data, we mean connected data,…data that contains references to other data points.…
In graphs terms, we call these relationships.…In the relational world, this would be data and queries…that involve writing lots of joins.…If you find yourself writing lots of SQL joins,…that might be a good problem for a graph database.…Data fusion, combining data sets…and querying across them in real time,…is where Neo4j really shines.…This is made possible by Neo4j's…flexible property graph data model,…and the Cypher query language.…Cypher is very powerful…for expressing complex graph traversals.…
Another area where Neo4j is very powerful is extensibility.…
