Digital Twins are the next logical step in an IoT implementation. Data storage for a digital twin can include a property graph database such as JanusGraph or DSE Graph, a time series database like TimescaleDB, and an analytical database like Redshift, Google Bigquery, or HP Vertica.
The graph database space is rapidly expanding as more and more companies identify potential use cases that require the traversal of highly connected network and hierarchical data sets in ways that are cumbersome with RDBMSs and NoSQL solutions.
Ted Wilmes discusses the state of JanusGraph in the year 2018. Throughout the session he touches on where we are in the world of graph, what is new, and where JanusGraph and Apache Tinkerpop are headed.
DataStax Enterprise 5.0 contains much more than a version bump of its component pieces. In particular, DSE 5.0 includes the new graph database, DSE Graph. DSE Graph is an Apache TinkerPop enabled distributed property graph database that uses Apache Cassandra for storage, DSE Search for full text and geospatial search, and DSE Analytics for analytical graph processing.
How can you retool your SQL talent to deploy on your graph project? According to Google Trends, interest in graph databases is increasing while SQL interest is level or even decreasing – but SQL searches are still 43 times more prevalent than graph.
