In my investigation of the Neo4j database I will now turn my attention to the Neo4j browser.
Once Neo4j is installed there will be a small executable that can be used to start the Neo4j database server.
In this blog post I am going to return to my investigation of the graph database Neo4j. So far I have done a brief introduction to Neo 4j and I have shown how easy it is to install Neo 4j in an Azure VM.
A couple of months ago I blogged about Neo4j, a graph database that I plan to check out. I didn’t get much chance to play with it, and a couple of weeks ago I found myself having to re-install Windows on both my desktop computer and my Surface Pro.
As an ASP.NET MVP I get 160 credits per month of Azure services, enough to run 2-3 small VMs, so I thought it would make sense to install Neo4j on an Azure VM so it would be accessible whichever computer I was working at.
Over the last couple of years I have been trying to get a handle on the “new” database technologies lumped together under the NoSQL banner. In that respect I have posted several articles to this blog.
More recently my focus has shifted from looking at NoSQL databases as a group to diving in deeper to a few select “NoSQL” databases. The one that intrigues me most is Neo4j – a graph database.
