Neo4j is a Java-coded graph database by Neo Technology. Rather than store data in tables as many standard databases do, Neo4j stores data in graphs. Its designers claim that Neo4j’s graph-based structure provides a faster, more intuitive and more reliable experience for users, with data in nodes linked together through typed relationships. Neo4j is open source.
