GrapheneDB is a cloud-based Database-as-a-Service provider for graph databases based on Neo4j. It stores data in graphs, the most generic of data structures, and are especially suited for datasets where relationships are relevant.
In 2012, the founder of GrapheneDB, Alberto Perdomo, wanted to use Neo4j for a project. The process of setting up and monitoring servers and finding a place to host it was challenging. Therefore, he decided to create GrapheneDB to make it easier for clients to focus on learning about Cypher and graph modeling in Neo4j as well as developing their applications.
GrapheneDB is a Database-as-a-Service provider that uses Neo4j. Neo4j uses non-block checkpoints, so it can be backed up as it serves user traffic. Neo4j can have daily or weekly full backups, which results in a database image on the disk. It also provides incremental backups that can be done hourly or daily. A combination of incremental and full backups allows for safety and efficiency. GrapheneDB also provides similar backups- daily, weekly, monthly, or on-demand backups. This also captures a current snapshot of the database for recovery, if needed, and doesn't require downtime.
