Titan has been decommisioned after the takeover by Datastax. It will be removed from the DB-Engines ranking. A fork has been open-sourced as JanusGraph.
DescriptionOLTP - DBMS for mainframes and Linux/Unix/Windows environments infoused typically together with the Natural programming platformHigh performance, persistent RDF store with additional support for Graph DBMSScalable GPU-accelerated RDBMS for very fast analytic and streaming workloads, leveraging PostgreSQLMicrosoft Access combines a backend RDBMS (JET / ACE Engine) with a GUI frontend for data manipulation and queries. infoThe Access frontend is often used for accessing other datasources (DBMS, Excel, etc.)Titan is a Graph DBMS optimized for distributed clusters.
