Thoughts from the Wet Coast

The musings of an ASP.NET Developer from Canada's We(s)t Coast

I have had an interest in Graph databases for a while. In fact, a couple of years ago I presented a session on Graph Databases and Neo4j in particular at the DNN Con conference held in West Palm Beach. Graph Databases fill an important place in the array of Database options, both relational (SQL) and non-relational (NoSQL), available to us as developers. But what are Graph Databases? And what are the Graph Database implementations available to us. In this series of blog posts I will explore these topics in some detail and I invite you to join me as I learn about this important topic in the age of Social Media.

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.

imageOver 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.
