Graphs are well-suited for many use cases to express and process complex relationships among entities in enterprise and social contexts. Fueled by the growing interest in graphs, there are various graph databases and processing systems that dot the graph landscape. JanusGraph is a community-driven project that continues the legacy of Titan, a pioneer of open source graph databases. JanusGraph is a scalable graph database optimized for large scale transactional and analytical graph processing. In the session, we will introduce JanusGraph, which features full integration with the Apache TinkerPop graph stack. We will discuss JanusGraph's optimized storage model that relies on HBase for fast graph transversal and processing.
